JBJ Lighting Submariner

In Tank UV Sterilizer 5W UV Sterilizer:
JBJ Lighting Submariner, In Tank UV Sterilizer 5W UV Sterilizer 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 pre-filter 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.

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 pre-filter 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 sponge 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 power head off and removing the whole encapsulated quartz sleeve and rinsing off under the sink.

Excellent!

Comments: It did what it said it does. I put it in a 40 gal tank that was as green as pea soup from the greenwater algae, and in 4 or 5 days the water was clear. very cool toy, definitely worth the money.

Comments: My tank has experienced a severe algae bloom. I almost could not see the fish in my 40 gal saltwater tank. Within less then a week the floating algae in my tank was gone. All that was left was a milky color in the water. I did a large partial water change and the tank was crystal clear. This product is easy to install and really works great.

Top Quality All in one UV Product Review by PETER SUSLOCK (Posted on 4/24/12)

Comments: After a few months of toying with the idea of getting a U. V Sterilizer I finally decided to give one a shot and purchased the Submariner by JBJ Lighting

What had put me off about them was the need for power heads, pumps, tubing , plumbing and the overall hassle of installing one - not to mention the expense.

After doing a fair amount of research I chose the Submariner because it bypasses all of the above in one self contained unit.

No hoses or tubing to run and no extra pump to buy, everything is pre built into one sleek, all inclusive unit which you can literally take out of the box, attach inside your tank or sump, plug it in and that's that.

What U.V sterilizers do is pull in water which flows past an encased in clear quartz tube but is exposed to UV light, which kills 99% of harmful pathogens.

Humans can't see U.V light and it's dangerous to look at directly - hence the bulb which is more of a tube encased in a quartz sleeve is covered in a black plastic case. A little violet light lets you know the unit is working.

As the water is exposed to the U.V harmful microscopic organisms that pose a threat to marine life or cause cloudy water are destroyed.

Most UV systems, including this one boast a 99% kill rate but keep mind enough good bacteria that colonizes and lives in your filter and tank substrates aren't effected so the delicate ecosystem of an "established" tank remains unharmed.

I thought the water in my tank was clear - however the following morning after I had installed the unit the water was so unbelievably crystal and pristine that had it not been for the aeration it would have looked like my fish were floating in air.

PROS

1) Strong pump and outflow - 211 GPH this is the same for all three units which range from tanks up to 40 , 100 and 150 gallons. I keep mine above the water line and get great aeration and surface movement.

2) Excellent build quality, the unit is surprisingly heavy and well made

3) Excellent kill
