What is an Ultra-Violet Clarifier (UVC)?

The UVC subjects the pond water to UV radiation.  This means that microscopic single-cell algae flocculate (stick together).  The resultant large particle pieces are picked up by filter foams and prevented from re-entering the pond.  This prevents your pond looking green (like pea soup).

 UVC’s are normally part of the filter these days, but they can also be bought as separate units.

 UVC’s are rated by Watts which relates to how much of pond volume they can effectively deal with.
