Seems to work

Comments: I have always found it difficult to review UV sterilizers because they are usually running internally and makes it difficult to evaluate. That being said, this model seems to work ok. I noticed that the fittings and piping provided are fairly loose fit. I have this hooked up to a MJ1200 in my JBJ28 nano cube. I realize this is a bit over the recommended flow rate, but I have noticed that water leaks out near the fittings where the hose does not fit tight. The light does turn on, so I assume it is doing its job. This does increase the temperature in the tank a bit. I have it running only at night for this reason. For a nano JBJ28, I don't think there is a better product on the market. Thank you MarineDepot for the quick shipping.

Comments: I purchased this to use on my Jbj 12 nano cube. It's was way to long to fit like instructions said to install. I guess it's only for the jbj 24. Plumbing it was a pain. If you have the 12 nano I'd look else where.

Comments: Absolute trash... there is a reason it is so cheap. Leaks like a sieve! Threw the one I bough in the trash the about five minutes after installing it. I didn't try to return it because I was embarrassed for attempting to go the cheap rought. You get what you pay for.

Leaks

Comments: Those reviews that say the product leaks. Yes, it is true. Thankfully I have teflon tape and clamps and the sterilizer is contained in my sump so its alright but yes it does leak. I cannot comment yet on the effectiveness since my tank is new, but other than leaking, it's very easy to setup.

Comments: The sterilizer unit itself is self contained, small, and looks like it will work excellently in my two JBJ nano cubes. I like that I don't need to run it externally with a pump and return etc.

Comments: As far as a UV lamp, it works. But as far as security is concerned... not only does every single connection leak, but the body leaks too. The plastic connectors that are meant to link it to your hose can also come off by themselves!

Comments: I'm using this in a little SPS tank. I was having a little trouble with nuisance algae. Within about 5 days if installing the NanoZapp - most of it was gone. Very niceproduct for the money. I recommend it.

Comments: The sterilizer indeed does it's job. What I found bothersome was that every fitting leaked, including the body. I'm using it to assist in breakIng down residual ozone (O3) into free oxygen (O2) on the outlet of my Ozone Reactor before going into a Fluidized Carbon Reactor returning to my sump on a mixed hard coral, mainly SPS reef. It is therefore out my sump. I Fixed the drips with a little acrylic cement and all is well. Most would use it maybe in the refugium on a nano reef, like the nano cube, where those drips annoying me would never alarm you. The fittings are not barbed, which also creates a leaky situation. Needs a minor redesign, and for build quility I give it 3 stars. For funtioning as a UV sterilizer, I give it 5 for the intended purpose. Just keep in mind if you want to go external inline, it will leak without glue and teflon tape on the threads!
