UV water purification for aquariums, ponds and fish farms
UV water purification - the best answer for aquariums, ponds and fish farms
Fish breeders, hobbyists and professional aquarists know that properly managing fish means cleaning the water of potential harmful organisms such as bacteria, algae, and parasites. Ultraviolet (UV) water purification is an important tool among both experts and amateurs to keep aquariums looking clean and fish healthy.
A UV-lamp water purification system typically employs a light with a wavelength of 254 nanometers. Aquarium water pumped through the UV chamber is exposed to this light and irradiated. Free-floating microorganisms are affected by the UV light and are no longer able to multiply. Through continual use, UV-lamp purification can help manage water quality issues such as bacteria, algae, and parasites.
In addition to its use in aquariums, water purification systems using UV light are also ideal for treating incoming and recirculated water in fish farms and hatcheries. It uses no chemicals and does not create byproducts, which could harm the fish stock, or other aquatic life. Unlike other treatment methods, water purification systems using UV light also avoid the expense of complex monitoring systems required for adding and removing chemicals before the water reaches the fish. And, UV water purification systems donot alter the pH level of the water either. UV water purification systems are regarded as an effective and economical disinfection technique for use in fish aquaculture.
How do UV sterilizers work?
The UV sterilizer utilizes a germicidal fluorescent lamp that produces light at a wavelength of approximately 254 nanometers (2537 Angstroms). The water with the bacteria/algae passes over the bulb (or around the bulb if a quartz sleeve is used) and is irradiated with this wavelength. As the light penetrates the bacteria/algae, it mutates the DNA (genetic material), preventing growth/multiplication of the organism.
As a general guideline, the following are some typical UV transmission rates (UVT)
City water supplies850-980‰
De-ionized or Reverse Osmosis water950-980‰
Surface waters(lakes, rivers, etc)700-900‰

Frequently Asked Questions About Ultraviolet (UV) Purification
1. What is UV?
Ultraviolet (UV) light is at the invisible, violet end of the light spectrum. Even though
we can't see UV light, we are exposed to UV rays from all light sources, including the sun.
2. How does ultraviolet light purify water?
UV-C rays penetrate the cells of harmful bacteria and viruses in our drinking water,
destroying their ability to reproduce. Without this ability, these organisms die and no
longer pose a health threat. It is a simple but very effective process, with the system
destroying 99.99% of harmful microorganisms.
3. Why not use chlorine instead?
Chlorine changes the taste and odor of water. Chlorinating also produces harmful by-
products called Trihalomethanes (THMs) which are linked to incidence of cancer.
4. Does a UV system use a lot of energy?
No, the UV unit will use about the same amount of energy as a 60 watt light bulb. It is a
cost effective, natural way to increase water quality.
5. Why do UV purifiers require sediment pre-filtration?
UV systems require pre-filtration to maintain effectiveness as sediment and other
contaminants in the water can create a "shadow" which prevents the UV rays from reaching
and disinfecting the harmful microorganisms.
6. How often does the UV light bulb (lamp) need to be replaced?
It is essential that you change your UV lamp annually. The ability of the lamp to emit UV
light decreases over one year in operation. Remember - UV light is invisible! Even though
the lamp is still glowing after one year, there might not be enough UV light reaching your
water to be effective.
7. How often do your need to replace the sleeve?
The sleeve doesn't need to be replaced unless it is broken, but it will need to be cleaned
several times a year in order to keep the bulb effective in delivering high water quality.
