5W JBJ Submariner UV Sterilizer/Clarifier Information




The Submariner is the proactive solution for eradicating harmful micro-organisms and unattractive green free-floating algae in fresh & saltwater aquariums. This revolutionary UV sterilizer/clarifier is completely submersible, which can be placed either in the main body of the aquarium or positioned horizontally in a sump for a clutter free set-up.

This utilizes a UV-C compact fluorescent lamp that is encapsulated in our unique Quartz Sleeve that is air tight and allows for a 99% transmission rate to efficiently neutralize disease causing pathogens. All models include an integrated pump with an adjustable swivel spout and large mechanical prefilter sponge.

A Perfect Match
We`ve taken the guess work out of sizing flow rates of pumps to lamp wattages. All models include an integrated submersible pump that is specifically sized for your aquarium which includes a swivel spout nozzle, adjustable flow valve and lamp indicator. Did we mention, you won`t need any tubes or connection fittings... it`s ready to install right out of the box.

Stay in Control
The ability to adjust flow rates puts you in total control of what you intend to eradicate. Slower flow rates increase the dwell (contact time) period with the UV for more resistant parasites while faster flow rates are needed to rid undesirable bacteria and free-floating algae. We`e also incorporated an adjustable swivel spout nozzle to add extra flow in your aquarium as a secondary benefit.

Versatile & Compact
The Submariner is compact enough to fit in the smallest sumps and discreetly blends into aquariums. It`s streamline design and black exterior finish compliments any environment it enters.

Your First Line of Protection
The first step to long-term consistent sterilization is an adequate mechanical prefilter to trap particulate matter and debris. Providing crystal clear water to the UV is vital to the overall success of any unit.

Water enters from the slotted sidewalls and 100% of the water is directed through the sponge and then to the UV with no bypass. Our quick-release cap instantly grants access for fast spong replacements and regular cleaning schedules.

Encapsulated Quartz Sleeve
Our innovative design encapsulates the UV-C lamp in a commercial grade waterproof quartz sleeve that protects and allows for a 99% transmission rate for optimal performance.

Maintenance Made Simple
UV sterilizers require regular cleaning of the exterior of the quartz sleeve to remove any organic build up to effectively perform. Cleaning the quartz sleeve is made simple by unsnapping the powerhead off and removing the whole encapsulated quartz sleeve and rinsing off under the sink. It`s that simple!

Comments: I bought 2 of these, one 5w and one 7w...the 7w, I have in a 55g tank, stuck on the inside middle back glass 4" below the water line. Man, it's huge...it is larger than what, I pictured. If you're wanting this in your reef tank, make sure you have room for something this big. Luckily, I had enough nice pieces of LR to build around it (not too close) that made it less noticeable. My black background helps also. The 5w, I can't see putting in my 30g reef. It will be too big. All in all, I would suggest IF you have a sump PUT IT IN THERE...

Comments: I purchased this product for my outdoor 30 gallon pond which had become very cloudy, pea green from algae bloom. I could not see my fish. After the first 24-48hrs of running the UV, my water turned murky dark grey/brown with mudlike sediment due to dead algae. I continued to run it and did frequent rinsing of my filter medium, washed off all of my rocks and plant leaves. As the week progressed the water quality got better and better and now a week later my water is clear and my fish and myself are very happy! I would definitely recommend this product. All it takes is a little patience and help with filtering out all of the waste from the dead algae. I am very pleased!

Comments: Love this product. Made my water crystal clear overnight. Only draw back I can see is that is is a little on the bulky side, but its a great solution when you're running a system that cannot support an in-line sterilizer.

Comments: I wish I had purchased this or something simliar. In just a couple days, I can see quite a difference in the clarity of the water, but most importantly, the fish are more active and appear to be acting naturally, instead of just hanging out. I've always had a difficult time keeping snail alive. The three trubo snails I have seem to be very healtly and are happy plowing through the hairy alaege as if there was no tommorw. I highly recommender a uv sterlizer for any size tank. Its worth it.

Comments: I purchased this unit for a 20 Gal hospital tank. It does a great job to keep the water clear and healthy. It was easy to install and the extra power outlet at the balast compensates for the short pump cable. It was easy to install and easy to maintain. Used in conjunction with an hang on mechanical/biological filter.

Comments: Does an OK job of killing algae. Biggest problem is both power cords are ridiculously short. I have a standard 29 gallon tank that's 18 inches tall on a 30 inch stand. With the unit completely submerged (which it has to be to work) the corde don't even touch the ground. Some of us don't have a sump to put things in.

Comments: I am amazed on how much of a difference I can tell from the water quality now that the UV is in the tank! It's a little bulky if you have a small aquarium under the size of 30 Gallons, but anything bigger, I think it will make a great addition to your tank!

Comments: I received my 5 watt UV sterilizer model yesterday from MarineDepot. My 30 gallon long tank has green water . Its an open top tank with dwarf papyrus,lilies,etc . Thus its right next to a window and gets lots sun. I ran the unit since last night and BINGO greenwater is gone . Its crystal clear. I would have liked suction cups a bit larger as bit small for the unit. Its 9 inches high and 3 wide thus might to big for some tanks. I am just going to use it here and there to kill suspended algae than remove it from tank but again it works GREAT and very easy to use .
