The aquarium or pond water is channelled in a thin stream through a special water-tight casing past a UVC compact lamp. A glass sleeve with a reflective foil, installed in the casing ensures an optimized efficiency. This protects the plastic casing from destruction by the UVC radiation. The UVC rays penetrate the water as it flows through, destroying algae cells, bacteria, fungal spores as well as freely floating stages of single-celled parasitic animals, and contribute to the inactivation of viruses. Thus cloudiness caused by bacteria and floating algae is successfully eliminated. The spread of stubborn algae, such as thread algae, can also be reduced as its spores are destroyedto a large extent. The water treatment through radiation also improves the health of the fish as the level of germs in the water is reduced, decreasing the risk of infection. The physical principle of radiation causes absolutely no change to the water values and has no negative effect on the cleansing bacteria in the filter, which are vital for the breakdown of pollutants.
