Floating UV Filter with Pump Repl. 5W UV Bulb (Mfg# QRBUVP)
Purchased this last year. Definitely a lot less algae in the pond last summer. The first year we didn't lose any fish either. I liked that it is easy to install (nothing in line, just place in the pond and plug it in). Will be replacing the bulb and putting back in the pond soon.

Didn't buy the pump/uv filter from Foster&Smith
Bought it 3 years ago elsewhere - wish I had bought from Foster&Smith. I bought replacement media and UV bulb. Fast shipping and always reliable. Learned my lesson about buying from the big box store on items related to the pond.

Clever use of UV clarifier light to reduce green water
I purchased this product because I has having troublesome green water algae problems. I use this 24/7 in conjunction with algae control chemicals. After 2 weeks I do not see an appreciable difference in my pond. I am a bit disappointed that the UV light is so small and I suspect that is the reason that the results are not as good as I hoped for.I will continue its use with the hope that the green water will improve.

Waste of Money
This filter unit is a very poor design and stopped working after just a few months. The light bulb stopped working so I ordered a replacement and a spare. Well it wasn't the bulb because it stopped working altogether after trying both of the bulbs I had ordered. The unit is also very cumbersome to take apart and put back together. Overall, it is a very poor design and quality.
