Cleaning the Quartz Sleeve (Monthly)|
The quartz sleeve acts like a barrier between the water and the UV-C lamp to maintain proper operating temperatures and allow for a 99% transmission rate.
Cleaning the quartz sleeve is crucial to the UV's success and should be performed monthly.
Step 1: Remove the pump from the main body.
Step 2: Unscrew the black quartz sleeve cover (counter clockwise)
Step 3: Clean any unwanted algae and debris from the outside of the quartz sleeve.
Note: Vinegar may be used to remove calcium deposits on the exterior of the quartz sleeve. Thoroughly clean residue off before reinstalling.
