JBL did not neglect the pond enthusiasts or terrarium and aquarium owners at the Interzoo. As well as ProHaru (featured in our last blog post Interzoo 2016 –Bonding with ProHaru® ) the new ProCristal product line with its many innovative features will be a real boon for your aquarium or garden pond.
After all clear water is number one on almost all pond owners’ wish lists. The greatest evil is cloudiness. And there are several types to bother us:
- Whitish cloudiness: often caused by an explosive increase of bacteria. There can be many different reasons for this.
- Greenish cloudiness: caused by floating algae. This is usually caused by a combination of a lot of nutrients in the water and strong light entering the water.
With the JBL UV-C water clarifiers you can eliminate cloudiness quickly! Here in brief are the most important points:
High-performance water clarifier for aquariums and garden ponds
Eliminates green water (floating algae) and whitish cloudiness (bacteria) reliably and quickly, using germ-killing UVC radiation. UV light is an entirely physical agent. There are no harmful side effects. Reduces the germ load and reduces the risk of infection. To extend the performance, devices can be joined together by connecting pieces ( JBL ProCristal UV-C QuickConnect ). Very high effectiveness thanks to water flow with a maximum layer thickness of 10 mm. Automatic burner switch-off when opening the device ensures safety. Optional hose connector tails or threads for PVC tube fittings. Strong 5 m rubber cable with protective earth wire and safety plug. 4-year warranty on casing.
The ProCristal UV-C high-performance water clarifiers are available in the following versions:
A suitable accessory to double the performance is the JBL ProCristal UV-C QuickConnect which connects two devices with each other. Over the JBL ProCristal UV-C ElbowConnect you can rotate the hose outlet 90° to perfect the installation according to your wishes.
A huge dwarf – the new JBL ProCristal internal filter
This little oddball is new to the ranks of the large UV-C clarifiers. Like the others it ensures clear visibility and clean water.
Many nano and pico aquariums are already crammed even before the owner installs a filter. The new internal filter JBL ProCristal i30 is just the thing. At only 8 x 4 x 12 cm it fits into a coffee mug and still offers an astonishing cleaning performance for aquariums between 10 and 40 litres! It is equipped with a separate filter chamber for dedicated filter material to combat algae growth, or for exceptionally clear water. There is a comprehensive range of filter cartridges especially for the small filter on offer too. And for those who want to grow this baby into an adult, they can start by doubling the filter volume with the help of an extension module, and then go on extending it. It goes without saying that the JBL ProCristal i30 is safe for shrimps and juvenile fish.
The following dedicated filter cartridges and extensions are part of the range:
