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!

BEST EVER Product Review by LANDA (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: Went to my local pet store and they recommended this product. I had an algae bloom that was horrid and had one 6 months before. I had at that time gone to a "speciality" store and was sold some chemicals that got rid of the algae bloom but also killed my beaufitul fish. I highly recommend this fantastic product . Its easy to use and is perfect for smaller tanks. It took one week to clear water that was so bad that I could not even see my fish that I had purchased after using harmful chemicals to do the same job. I am very happy with this product and even with mechanically challenged people like me , found it easy to use. Now my water is clear and sparkeling. Do NOT use chemicals to get rid of an algae bloom . Use this product. It will work forever. Thanks! ! And the price is great too!

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: 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.
