Aqua Ultraviolet is one of the most popular options available and has been in the UV game for more than four decades creating UV sterilizers for use across multiple industries including aquaculture and food & beverage on the commercial side to aquariums and ponds for home use. They're simple in construction, well built, and they're made in the USA. 


How UV Sterilizers Work

Ultraviolet sterilizers are a time-tested approach to water clarification and sterilization. They emit a germicidal UV-C ray that will alter the DNA or RNA of single celled organisms like algae, bacteria, and protozoa, rendering them unable to reproduce. The result is crystal clear water without the use of any chemicals. Using a UV sterilizer will not alter water chemistry. 

Aqua Ultraviolet sterilizers include a clear-blue cap that lets you see when the lamp is powered on, without having to risk any exposure to the harmful UV-C rays. How effective the UV sterilizer is greatly depends on having the proper flow rate through the sterilizer body, so we highly suggest using a valve or a DC pump to control the flow through the UV sterilizer. For freshwater aquariums, AquaUV suggests 3200 gallons per hour for the 57 Watt Classic UV Sterilizer. 



Over time the efficiency of the sterilizer will start to diminish because the lamp is no longer putting out the same amount of energy, but also the quartz sleeve that houses the lamp can become coated with mineral deposits and start to become cloudy. We suggest cleaning the quartz sleeve a few times each year and replacing the UV lamp annually. This AquaUV Sterilizer includes quick-connect unions on the input and output allowing you to quickly remove the entire system from your aquariums plumbing for maintenance. With proper maintenance, your UV sterilizer will work like it did from day one.

What would be the best Sicce pump to go with this model?
Question by: Arrick Lampkin on Jun 27, 2022, 5:07 PM
That is a great question. The pump linked below is adjustable within the flow ranges for both bacteria and algae. The fact that it is adjustable makes it work well depending on varying situations that may happen in the aquarium. The SDC 9.0 wifi pump (1000-2500gph) will work well with this UV sterilizer but you will need to adjust the fitting sizes to accommodate the 3/4" barb fittings that come with the UV unit to get them to work together. You can do that with adapters for either hard plumbing pvc or a reducing barb fitting.

What would be the optimal flow rate for Ich management on this unit? Thanks.
Question by: Ryan C on Apr 21, 2020, 6:02 PM
Hi there,

Thank you for reaching out to us! UV's will not get rid of ich. Ich can only be treated with copper or leave it to die by removing the host fish. Good QT practice is much better ich management than a UV.

Take care!
