Lifegard Aquatics UV Sterilizer QL series Information



Part #: R177080

Purify the contents of your tank without using too much energy with the Lifegard Aquatics 10 Watt UV Sterilizer from Pet Store. This product comes in different measurements, depending on the size of your aquarium. This is suitable for both freshwater and marine tanks. It comes at a low price, and it is readily available from any local pet store nationwide.

The Lifegard Aquatics 10 Watt UV Sterilizer is basically a lighting fixture that seeks to clean your tank's water. This is done by dissolving the properties and elements, which are not needed in the aquarium, by using heat, in the form of UV rays. It is easy to install, and it is recommended that you set this up below your power head to avoid taking too much space indie the tank, as well as to discourage your fish from going near it. Best of all, it emits a pleasant light that will illuminate the contents of your case perfectly, encouraging them to thrive and propagate, especially at nights.

Your aquatic inhabitants will constantly enjoy a fresh and clean home with a regular dose of the Lifegard Aquatics 10 Watt UV Sterilizer. Plus, it will also appreciate the nice touch that the cool light radiates.

Average Ratings:

Great UV unit Product Review by SCOTT COLSTON (Posted on 2/26/14)
Rating
Excellent!

Comments: Very nice unit that is easy to install into your system.
Pros:
Handles a lot of water so you can run a larger pump.
Easy to replace bulb.

Cons:
Would be nice to have treaded fittings into the unit and not slip fittings. This way you could transfer it out to another system.
Unit is very tall and must be run upright which could be a problem.

daisy chainable Product Review by rockitrob (Posted on 2/26/14)

Average

Comments: The unit is bulky and requires pre planning to setup to maintain access. The nice thing about them is that it can be connected in a daisy chain with other Pentair things like chemical modules.

outstanding but fragile Product Review by Peter Plantec (Posted on 2/26/14)

Comments: My QL-40 did an outstanding job on my 2000+ gal Koi pond, but I live in the high country and one tough winter fractured the entire housing. The only thing to survive was the lamp and quartz tube.

UV sterilizer Product Review by WENDELL ARNOLD (Posted on 5/24/12)

Excellent!

Comments: I have had an UV light on gold fish pond for years. Before I built a pond I had one on 70 aquarium. The main use in the pond if for algae control. It is the last element of a three stage filter system. The first stage consists of a settling camber followed by a bead filter.

The reason for replacing my UV filter was that I let water seep into it during the winter and the freeze split the old one. Costly lesson.
