Aqua Ultraviolet Classic Series UV w/ Wiper 40W Lamp (Mfg# A20040)
Solidly built and great performance.
Product is built really well and assembles easily. I had it running in my system in 10 mins. Looks like it's working well.

Easy to install, keeps water clear
I have a 300 gallon koi pond and use the Aqua UV system to control algae. I've used the system for many years, along with a biological filter, and it works great. The pond is clear and healthy - evidenced by the offspring each year. I replace the UV bulb once a year. It takes only about 10 minutes, with simple connections.

Aqua Ultraviolet Classic 15W
Other than the bulb, this beast will last forever.
The 14 month bulb lifespan is great.
The flow rate measurements are for the end-of-life bulb output.
The bulb will last longer than 14 months but with diminished effectiveness from stats and rates recommended.
I'm using for freshwater aquarium use.
It's connected to the output of an Eheim 2217 canister filter in the horizontal position.
I used a little extra media to slightly slow the output on the filter to provide a great flow rate for my tank size.
I'm currently using this to destroy harmful bacteria and protozoa in an all male mixed African Cichlid tank.
The picture I attached is of the uninstalled unit. I added a dollar bill to give ratio.
Works, Love it.

Glad you are now carrying these
After extensive research on UV sterilizers (as well as lots of failed purchases over the years), we found this brand last year and purchased two. They are great. So glad you are now carrying them. I would not buy anything else. Their tech support is also excellent and they will answer anything.
