Regular price £4.95

POND UV'S HAVE A LIFE SPAN OF APPROX 8000 HOURS SO SHOULD BE REPLACED EVERY 10 MONTHS

Tropical Marine Centre offers a full range of replacement UV lamps for our pond, aquarium and commercial UV products. We are also able to supply replacement lamps for a number of other brands of UV filters.
We exclusively offer our own, brand-leading TM lamp range which we have been supplying into aquaculture and industry for more than 30 years.

How often should a UV lamp be replaced?

UV lamps, used for sterilisation purposes in our V2ecton and commercial system UVs, should be replaced every 6 months (approx. 4000 hrs) to ensure the continuous high output that is required for these applications. Lamps used for clarification of ponds can be replaced once a year (approx. 8000 hrs) without detriment to the effectiveness of the unit under normal circumstances. Whilst replacing the UV lamp, the
quartz sleeve should be carefully cleaned with a light acid cleaner and washed with water to remove any deposits and dirt that may have built up.

The quartz sleeve should be completely dry before replacing it in the unit. The quartz O rings should be replaced to ensure an effective seal between the quartz sleeve and the plastic body.

PLEASE NOTE:
All of our UV lamps are low mercury, in compliance with the RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) and WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) guidelines.
