Works great! Product Review by MICHAEL WONG (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: I have a 225 gallon saltwater reef tank. I got the Turbo Twist because I was getting tired of scraping off algae 2 times a week. Since I've had the Turbo Twist installed (easy to do), the algae doesn't seem to be growing back as fast! It also has helped cure my Naso of his cloudy eye. =)

Perfect For Large Aquarium Product Review by BRANDON EDWARDS (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: The 12X is perfect for those of us with large marine systems (200+ gallons). It is simple to set up, very user friendly, and bulb exchange is fool proof.

Excellent!

Comments: This product is almost perfect out of the box. I did quite a bit of research on UV sterilizers and choose this one based on its ability to maintain contact with the water for just that much longer as it followed the twist around the UV bulb.
I would say that an extra 1/16th of an inch of plastic in the mounts would make this sterilizer absolutely perfect. When trying to snap the mounts onto the body of the sterilizer you actually have to fight with them, almost to the point of breakage to get them to fit.
When assembling the bulb be sure to avoid touching with your fingers as the oils on your fingers will shorten the bulb life. All the seals and connections were tight and waterproof directly out of the box. However, I did not use the plastic nuts supplied to connect the tubing as they really didn't fit well or seem like they would do the job intended. I therefored used automotive hose clamps which maintained a watertight seal the first time.
When looking for a pump to run the unit I choose the Eheim 1000 Compact Pump.

Why 5 stars? Product Review by ALEX AGUERO (Posted on 12/20/13)

Excellent!

Comments: I have given this product five stars, not only because of its performance and easy installation, but rather because of the superior customer service I've received. Once fully installed, I noticed that the lamp wasn't working. A brief call and they offered several solutions to replace the unit. I called the manufacture who within five minutes offered to ship me a new ballast at no charge. Although I shop at my LFS for water and marine life, I chose this store for all my hardware, for exactly the reasons I experienced this week. Thank you.
