The Advantage 2000 Aqua Ultraviolet Sterilizer is used to
destroy single celled organisms such as water borne bacteria and viruses. The
sterilizer is also used to control algae and and to kill fungi and protozoa.
Advantage Sterilizers are recommended for both fresh and salt water systems as
well as ponds. The ultraviolet lamp emits a germicidal ray which alters or
disrupts the DNA or RNA of targeted organisms such as algae, bacteria and
protozoa. The Aqua ultraviolet sterilizer works better on filtered water. Any
debris in the water can inhibit UV transmission.
The Advantage Sterilizer can be installed vertically or horizontally. The best
place to install your UV sterilizer is after the filter. If it is necessary to
install the sterilizer before the filter, adequate pre-filtration should be used
to prevent the quartz sleeve from breaking from debris.
The Aqua Ultraviolet quartz sleeve should be cleaned once a year to remove film
from the surface that will hinder the effectiveness of the UV. It can be cleaned
with swimming pool muriatic acid, lime away or a similar product. Do not use any
type of abrasive substance on the quartz sleeve as it may scratch the quartz.
The Advantage 2000, 8 watt Aqua Ultraviolet Sterilizer is for saltwater
aquariums up to 50 gallons and for freshwater aquariums and ponds up to 200
gallons. The max flow rate is 642 GPH. The sterilizer includes the transformer,
lamp and quartz sleeve.
