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 cloudiness caused by bacteria and floating algae. The aquarium water passes through the sturdy UV-resistant casing of the clarifier. The reflection of the UV radiation kills off bacteria, other germs and floating algae as the water passes through. This can also help to eliminate persistent algae, such as thread algae, since their spores are also mostly killed off.

No harmful side effects No change of 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. 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.

Technical Data

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.

Enclosed with my ProCristal UV-C are several seals. Which should I use?

For each connection fitting there is a seal in the carton and another fitting for the special elbow fitting. Thus for the 5 W and 11 W version 3 seals and for the 18 W and 36 W version five seals are enclosed. All the seals in the carton are the same size. Never use two on top of each other since this can lead to leakage. Please only use one seal for each connection.

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: 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.
