It is important to keep this appliance clean. Always unplug the appliance before performing maintenance or cleaning of the pre-filter sponge, pump, and quartz sleeve. Make sure hands are completely dry before re-plugging into an electrical outlet.
Cleaning the Quartz Sleeve - Monthly
The Quartz Sleeve acts as 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: Unplug pump and NanoZapp from electrical outlet.
Step 2: Unscrew the black quartz sleeve cover (counterclockwise).
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. Clean residual off before re-installing.
Replacing the UV-C Lamp - 6 to 9 months
The UV-C lamp has an average life span of 5,000 hours of operation. Although the lamp may illuminate, it will not perform effectively for disease control. Lamp should be replaced before it expires. You can check the status of the lamp by an illuminated blue color at the bottom of the NanoZapp.
Step 1: Twist off black quartz sleeve cover (counterclockwise).
Step 2: Gently pull quartz sleeve out.
Step 3: Unplug the UV-C lamp and plug in new lamp.
