Smart design optimizes UV performance for clean, clear pond water. Emperor Aquatics SMART Pond UV Clarifiers ensures maximum UV-C output through careful placement of the UV lamp. Long-lasting UV lamps are positioned between the inlet/outlet ports so the entire length of the lamp is utilized. Pond water is cleared of algae blooms in three to five days while protected against common waterborne pathogens, viruses and protozoa!
Emperor Aquatics SMART UV Sterilizers employ their exclusive remote SMART ballasts designed to operate the UV lamp at peak efficiency. Precise input wattage to the UV lamp optimizes performance for long-lasting, reliable use. High quality watertight UV sterilizers boast durable, heavy-wall construction for years of trouble-free operation. Adjust flow rate based on use. Reducer and 1" Barb Ports included for convenient installation. 1-1/2" Union Ports for inlet & outlet. 3-1/2" diameter.

Use only genuine Emperor Aquatics replacement parts to ensure optimal performance from your Emperor Aquatics SMART UV sterilizer. Each sold separately.
Replacement UV Lamps
UV lamps need to be replaced after 13 months (9,000 hours) of continual use. Please Note: Using UV Lamps other than those identified as "Emperor Aquatics, Inc." may cause damage to your Emperor Aquatics UV Sterilizer. Use only genuine Emperor Aquatics, Inc. UV Lamps with Emperor Aquatics SMART UV systems.
Please Note: A water test should be performed each time the quartz sleeve or gaskets and O-rings are replaced (once annually). Performing a water test will determine whether or not a proper seal has been achieved. Failure to achieve a proper seal during SMART UV operation will allow water to leak into the inside of the quartz sleeve, potentially damaging the UV lamp and other electrical components, which could develop into dangerous situations.

SMART UVs require no additional hardware for wet applications. Regardless of the application, solid waste should be removed from the water before it enters the UV Clarifier. Proper installation improves performance, longevity and safety. Install SMART UVs where they can be easily serviced.
Do not operate the UV Clarifier with a new installation containing fish until the water has been tested, showing that the nitrification cycle has been completed and biologically balanced.
External or Submersible Pump Installation
Match the SMART UV capacity to the re-circulating flow rate performance of the pump. Installing a check valve after the UV Clarifier will eliminate back-siphoning. Installing true-union ball valves will allow flow adjustments and UV Sterilizer removal. For best results, install a saddle-style water flow meter, mounted horizontally on the outlet side of the UV Clarifier. Follow the water flow meter manufacturer's instructions for proper installation and operation.
External or Submersible Pump Installation w/ by-pass manifold
This installation configuration is identical to the External or Submersible Pump Installation but with the addition of a bypass manifold. The bypass is used to deliver a precise water flow to the SMART UV Clarifier when the overall clean water return flow rate exceeds the UV's capacity.
Installing a check valve after the UV Clarifier will eliminate back-siphoning. Installing true-union ball valves will allow flow adjustments and easy UV Clarifier removal for servicing. For best results, install a saddle-style water flow meter, mounted horizontally on the outlet side of the UV Clarifier. Follow the water flow meter manufacturer's instructions for proper installation and operation.
Quartz Sleeve Cleaning:
It is recommended that the UV quartz sleeve be visually checked for cleaning once every three months of operation. Be aware that even the slightest layer of material (slim/dirt) coated on the outside of the quartz sleeve can have a profound effect on UV-C light transmittance through the glass and into the water. Cleaning frequency is dependent on how well you are filtering the water (solids removal) prior to the UV.
To clean the quartz sleeve:
Unplug the UV and shut the water pump off. Next, unthread the UV's black retaining nut and gently remove the quartz sleeve assembly and lamp from the UV housing. Inspect the quartz sleeve and clean as needed with a soft, clean cloth. For calcium deposits, use vinegar or muriatic acid to dissolve/clean. Be sure to remove any cleaners or acid before reassembling the quartz sleeve assembly and lamp back into the UV housing.
