UV UNITS & PARTS
In Australian conditions AUSSIEKOI W.A. recommends the installation of ultraviolet clarifiers on all koi ponds.Green water although not necessarily 'bad' water is caused by single-cell algae giving it a green appearance and making the viewing of fish impossible in most cases.
UV units are ideally placed in the return line (prefiltered water) to the pond. The ultra violet light from the internal specilised globe 'kills' the algae which in turn causes the single cell to coagulate making it easier for the filtration unit to remove the algae from the pond. This is turn improves the clarity of the pond water.
AUSSIEKOI W.A recommends great care to be taken with UV light as it is extremely dangerous to the eyes and will burn and can cause permanent damage and blindness. Always turn off a UV unit and pull the plug from the socket before servicing.
