Changing the Lamp CAUTION: Always turn off the pump and disconnect electricity from the unit prior to any maintenance
Unplug the UV from the power source and turn off the pump.
Unscrew the Davis or Hubl Connector located behind the Transformer Cap, this allows your Transformer Cap to spin freely.
Twist off the Transformer Cap.
Slide Lamp out, being careful not to slide the Lamp out at an angle. Even a slight angle may cause a "U" shaped crack at the end of the Quartz Sleeve, or possible breakage of the Lamp. A broken Lamp or Quartz Sleeve is not covered under warranty.
Disconnect the Lamp End Connector from the old Lamp.
Plug the new Lamp flush into the Lamp End Connector. If the Lamp is not plugged in all the way, it may cause damage to the unit and is not covered under warranty.
Insert the Lamp straight into the Quartz Sleeve. Be careful, inserting the Lamp at an angle, even a slight angle, can cause a "U" shaped crack in the Quartz Sleeve.
Twist on the Transformer Cap. Do not over tighten. This is a connection only and is not in contact with water.
Tighten the Davis or Hubl Connector located behind the Transformer Cap.
FINAL LEAK CHECK: Do not plug the Sterilizer into power yet, turn on the pump, let water run for 5 minutes and check for leaks.
Once a leak test is completed and there are no leaks, plug the Transformer into a GFCI outlet. Warranty is void if not plugged into a GFCI.
Replacement of the Quartz Sleeve
Unplug system, turn pump off and drain housing. Remove Lamp and Transformer. Note: If you have the Wiper option, pull the Wiper Rod out to be fully extended.
Untwist E-Z Twist Top. This will release the Quartz Sleeve Assembly. Pull The Quartz Sleeve Assembly straight out of the housing.
Untwist Quartz Cap. Push Quartz Sleeve up through E-Z Twist Top. Be careful not to break the Quartz Sleeve. Handling broken glass can cause injury. If your Quartz Sleeve is broken, protect your hands before servicing.
Discard old Quartz Sleeve and Rubber Seal.
Re-install E-Z Twist Top without Quartz Sleeve. Slide Quartz Sleeve into the housing. Be sure to center the quartz sleeve into the seat at the bottom of the unit. Note if you have the Wiper Option: Push the rod completely into the unit and insert Quartz Sleeve assembly through the blade(s). Please note units that use 40 Watt Lamps have 2 Wiper Blades, be sure to insert Quartz Sleeve into both Blades. Be sure the Quartz Sleeve is seated in the bottom of the UV Body.
Gently push the Quartz Sleeve and Rubber Seal in to the E-Z Twist Top until only 1/2 the rubber seal is visible.
Twist on the Quartz Cap. DO NOT use a pipe wrench, pliers or any other tool on this unit. Tighten by hand only.
Incorporate UV sterilizers as an invaluable tool in an algae control regimen in your pond. As water flows through the UV unit, free-floating algae are exposed to ultraviolet light and flocculate. Find out how this helps control algae.
