How the UV Clarifier Works
â€¢ The clarifier works by exposing single-celled algae to very high levels
of ultra violet (UV) light as the pond water containing them is pumped
through the unit.
â€¢ The algae die and clump together, making them easier for the filter
â€¢ While the UV clarifier will destroy the algae, water clarity is also
dependent on adequate pond filtration to trap and remove the dead
â€¢ Dead algae may clump, sink and accumulate at the bottom of the
pond. It can be removed with a fine mesh net.
â€¢ For most ponds with normal levels of green water, the cleaning
process should take about one week; however, with thicker algal
blooms this may take 2-3 weeks.
â€¢ The clarifying process can be made more efficient by regularly
carrying out partial water changes (up to 25% of pond volume).
â€¢ Always add a dechlorinator water treatment when adding tap water
to a pond.

Determining Pond Size:
In order to determine the gallons in your pond, use this easy
Length (ft) x Width (ft) x Average Depth (ft) = Cubic Feet
Cubic Feet x 7.5 = Gallons
UV Clarifier Size Selection:
Use the chart below to help determine the proper size UV clarifier using
your pond size.
It is still safe if the UV clarifier selected is stronger than what is
specified for your pond size.
It is important to control the water through the UV clarifier with a
flow rate that is within Â±10% of the optimal flows shown below in the
chart. The UV clarification process will be most effective at these flows.
Water flow that is too fast will minimize the â€œdwell timeâ€ the algae
