Pentair Aquatics Mechanical Filter Module DiagramSingle capacity for aquariums up to 100 gallons. Recommended aquarium sizes are approximate. In many the module can be used with great success in higher volume applications. Single capacity filter features the Lifegard exclusive combination mechanical and chemical cartridge. Internal carbon chamber has retainer screen to prevent carbon from escaping into system. Carbon can be easily rinsed while inside chamber. Water is forced through the filter pleats under pressure, trapping particles from 20 microns down to 5 microns on the outside of the cartridge. Economical replaceable pleats eliminate costly cartridge replacement. Highest quality PVC molded parts.

Other features:
  • 0-30 PSI/Bar Dial Pressure Gauge indicates when to clean cartridge.
  • Manual Air Bleed eliminates unwanted trapped air.
  • Water is forced through filter pleats under pressure for superior water quality.
  • No channeling. 100% of water passes through pleats and media within internal chamber.
  • Internal chamber holds 3 oz (86 grams) of Lifegard Pelletized Carbon. This is over 113 million meters of surface area! Will also hold a variety of chemical or biological Access filter media.
  • Replaceable pleat eliminates costly cartridge replacement. Inner pleat supports prevent pleats from squeezing shut providing longer filter cycle.

The picture at the right shows the standard cartridge together with the replacement pleats. These pleats are non-reusable. A 20 Micron Cartridge may be used as an alternative to the standard cartridge (see below).
Pentair Aquatics Mechanical Filter Cartridge

The 20 Micron Cartridge (left picture) is a replacement cartridge for the standard cartridge. It does not require a pleat, simply wash the cartridge to reuse. Unlike the standard cartridge this requires a standpipe.

Lifegard Aquatics QL-8 Single UV Sterilizer
Lifegard Aquatics UV Sterilizer Module DiagramThe radiation from ultraviolet light at 2537 angstroms provided inside the Lifegard Ultraviolet Sterilizer exerts a lethal effect on micro-organisms. UV light alters genetic material within the cells, which interrupts respiration. UV light, when used properly, is extremely beneficial in destroying disease causing pathogens as they pass through the unit. UV sterilization is an effective method of disease control.

Four major factors affect the percent kill of free-floating micro-organisms by UV radiation. (1) Size of organisms. (2) Radiation level. (3) The extent to which UV rays penetrate the water and (4) Contact time in which the micro-organism is exposed to the UV radiation.

Pure hard quartz material in the bulb dramatically increases UV output compared to other conventional bulbs of equal wattage. Pure quartz material resists solarization and improves the longevity of the bulb. Unique test tube style pure hard quartz sleeve isolates the bulb from water contact preventing thermal shock, broken glass and mercury contamination of the aquarium. This quartz sleeve isolates the bulb to provide an optimal bulb maximum UV operating temperature of 100°F (38°C). This higher bulb temperature increases UV output 35% over conventional units without sleeves. Bulb changing is the easiest in the industry. Simply slide the old bulb out and slide the new bulb in. No need to shut down the filter system or turn off the pump. Bulb and ballast connect together with a single 4 pin connector.

UV radiation levels can be increased by slowing down the flow rate or increasing the total wattage in the system.

The QL-8 UV sterilizer is an 8-watt sterilizer for aquariums up to 100 gallons. Tandem mounting will provide proper wattage for any installation requirement. UV sterilization is most effective when used as the final stage of the Lifegard filtration system.

It must be understood that micro-organisms reproduce exponentially. The goal is to reduce the micro-organism population to an acceptable level. In certain instances, the wattage may be adequate to eliminate the pathogens flowing through the Sterilizer but the flow rate is too slow to keep up with the total micro-organism population in the aquarium system. In those cases, the flow rate and total wattage must be increased.

Ultraviolet sterilizers kill free floating canister algae in ponds resulting in crystal clear water.

Other features:
  • Unique 4-pin connector design for easy bulb replacement without shutting down the system.
  • Solid cap features clear view port to allow visable light (no UV) to pass through and indicate bulb is operating.
  • Test tube style isolates UV bulb from water contact allowing it to operate at the optimum bulb temperature for maximum UV output. Highest quality pure hard quartz material allows maximum UV transmission.
  • Replaceable pipe automatically vents air from chamber and directs 100% of the water flow past UV light.
  • Replaceable sleeve protects outer housing from long term UV damage. Acts as an internal reflector maximizing UV efficiency.
  • Allows simple connection to any Lifegard Modular filter system or outside canister filter.
  • Highest quality pure hard quartz material allows maximum UV transmission and longer bulb life. End cap wire design drops bulb further into unit for maximum output and keeps heat away from sealing area.
Warranty: 1 year from date of purchase.
