Lamp Recycling
Emperor Aquatics, Inc. recognizes that we all have a responsibility as global citizens, to minimize our strain on the environment. The steps we take today to preserve our planet will have major repercussions on the health and well-being of our children.

Hg UV Lamps contain mercury, and should not be placed in the trash. Please recycle your old lamps or properly dispose of them as hazardous waste. Visit www.lamprecycle.org

SMART UV Sterilizer Installation

SMART UV Sterilizer

SMART UV Sterilizers require no additional hardware for wet applications. Regardless of the application, solid waste should be removed from the water before it enters the SMART UV Sterilizer. Proper installation improves performance, longevity and safety. Install our SMART UV Sterilizers where they can be easily serviced. Do not operate the UV Lamp with a new installation containing fish until the water has been tested, showing that the nitrification cycle has been completed and biologically balanced

Note: See UV Specifications Chart for Inlet/Outlet Information.

SMART UV Installation Locations
Our SMART UV Sterilizers are used in a variety of applications to control waterborne pathogens. We encourage you to consider the installation/operation recommendations provided here.

Solid Waste Removal
Operating the SMART UV Sterilizer after the mechanical filter increases its overall performance. Suspended solid waste will absorb UV light and reduce the UV transmittance through the water.

Emperor Aquatics Recommended Water Flow Rates
When operating SMART UV Sterilizers we encourage you to use OUR recommended water flow rates. Most competing UV's are supplied with exaggerated flow rate information that greatly jeopardizes their performance. Any deviation from our recommendations will void our GREEN to CLEAR in 3-5 DAY GUARANTEE!


SMART UV Sterilizer Installation

Small Ponds (up to 1,000 gallons) using a Dedicated Submersible Pump
For small ponds, or for applications where the SMART UV Sterilizer is operated independently from other filters, this installation configuration is ideal. Matching the pump to the SMART UV's recommended flow rate is critical to the UV Sterilizers performance. Installing an adequate mechanical pre-filter on the pump suction ensures that solids-free water will be sent to the SMART UV Sterilizer.


SMART UV Sterilizer Installation

Small to Moderately Sized Ponds (up to 5,000 gallons) using Skimmer and Falls
This is a very popular filter system style. Placing the UV Sterilizer between the skimmer box and the bio-falls filter ensures that pre-filtered water reaches the UV Sterilizer, increasing its performance while reducing maintenance. Often the capacity of the pump exceeds the capacity of the UV Sterilizer, if this is the case, install a by-pass manifold. Be sure that the skimmer is equipped with mechanical filtering (solid waste removal) capacity.

SMART UV Sterilizer Installation

Larger Sized Ponds (above 5,000 gallons) Surface Skimmer/Pressurized Filter
This is a very popular filter system style. Placing the UV Sterilizer between the skimmer box and the bio-falls filter ensures that pre-filtered water reaches the UV Sterilizer, increasing its performance while reducing maintenance. Often the capacity of the pump exceeds the capacity of the UV Sterilizer, if this is the case, install a by-pass manifold. Be sure that the skimmer is equipped with mechanical filtering (solid waste removal) capacity.

The SMART UV Sterilizer is positioned after the mechanical filter where it can receive only solids-free water, optimizing UV transmittance/performance. Notice the three-way valve that regulates suction from the skimmer and drain to the pump, allowing flow control. Next, multiple "clean water" returns improve circulation in the pool suspending solid waste helping it to find the filter. If you have a flow rate that exceeds the UV Sterilizers, install a by-pass manifold (see diagram #2).
