Pond UV Clarifiers
Pond UV clarifiers eliminate excess algae and disease organisms with ultraviolet light. A more potent toxin eliminator is the UV sterilizers - which eliminates algae and disease organisms in the same manner but with a higher efficiency of 99 percent. UV clarifiers and sterilizers won't harm the beneficial bacteria in your pond. Beneficial bacteria are essential to the health of your pond and its aquatic fish and plants because it helps maintain a healthy fish population. As pond fish eat plants and deposit waste it converts into deadly ammonia. Beneficial bacteria convert the toxins into harmless nitrates and nitrogen, which help fertilize pond plants. UV sterilizers should be installed between the pump and filter in order for waste to be collected by the biological filter afterwards. UV sterilizers cost between $160 and $1150 online.
