Product information

Crystal-clear and healthy water
Poor light conditions, over-fertilisation or even a surplus of nutrients can have negative effects on the aquarium water and may promote algae growth. Floating algae lead to green, bacteria to white clouding. The JBL water clarifier eliminates clouding caused by bacteria and floating algae. The aquarium water passes through the sturdy UV-resistant casing of the clarifier. The UV-C radiation kills off bacteria, other germs and floating algae as the water passes through. The efficiency of this UV-C water clarifier is particularly high, since the glass cylinder is surrounded by a reflecting stainless steel foil which reflects the UV-C radiation, thus doubling the efficiency. This can also help to eliminate persistent algae, such as thread algae, since their spores are also largely killed off.

No harmful side effects
No change to the water values / no negative influence on the essential cleansing bacteria in the filter.

Easy to install
Connect the water clarifier to the external filter or a separate water pump. Thanks to the 90° elbow included in the pack, any installation position is possible.

Safety
The JBL UV-C Water Clarifier is TÜV tested and has a safety switch for an automatic switch off when the device is opened. The casing is UV-resistant and has sturdy walls. It is equipped with a LED lamp which indicates whether the UV-C lamp is working.

FAQ
Why is combatting cloudiness less effective than partial sterilisation?

A partial sterilisation (against bacteria) is more effective than eliminating clouding caused by floating algae. Why? Because the cell structure of bacteria is quite simple. That’s why it is easier to destroy the cells of bacteria than those of algae.

JBL ProCristal UV-C: Can I run the UV-C water clarifier when using medications?

When using medications you should definitely switch off the UV-C burner.

JBL ProCristal UV-C: Can I store my water tests near the UV-C device?

Storing water tests near a UV-C unit will not cause any problems.

JBL ProCristal UV-C: I had cyanobacteria in the aquarium and have removed them mechanically. There are probably still some freely floating around and I would like to know whether they can be killed off with UV-C.

A UV-C lamp can also kill off cyanobacteria floating freely in the water.

JBL ProCristal UV-C: How long does the device need to be in operation each day?

From a distance we cannot assess how long your device needs to be in operation each day. For this we need to know the germ load and the regeneration of the germ density in the aquarium. However based on values of our own experience we would recommend running the device for an absolute minimum of 12 h a day. A continuous operation is, however, better for the durability of the burner.
