Hozelock Vorton UVC

Hozelock Vorton UVC –

A revolution in the efficient elimination of green water algae.

Higher powered UVC bulbs help maximise the elimination of algae and green water, also improving the clarity of your pond.

Key Benefits Include:

  • You can position in almost any position to complement your pond’s needs
  • You can fix to the pond wall or left free standing
  • Comes with 5 metres of cable, is easy to install and maintain and comes with a 2 year guarantee

What causes green water?: In certain conditions, large quantities of microscopic algae grow in the water. They create the green water that spoils the appearance of a pond by then making it impossible to see plants and fish.

It’s important not to confuse green water with the long strands of blanket weed that are also very common. Green water algae are so tiny that ordinary filters cannot trap them.

Why are Hozelock Cyprio UVCs so effective?:

  • Water is slowed down as it passes the lamp to increase UV penetration
  • Quartz glass tube covering the UV lamp permits effective penetration of UV rays. Ordinary glass cuts this by 90%
  • UV lamp runs at optimum operating temperature in an enclosed chamber
  • Water is kept as close as possible to the UV lamp to then maximise the UV efficiency
  • Single ended lamps last longer and have higher UV output

How do UVCs work?: As the pond water passes the UV lamp, the light makes the algae clump together so they are caught in the filter foam or sink to the bottom of the pond. You should then see an improvement in days and achieve complete clarity in 6 to 8 weeks.

You can also connect a separate UVC into the hose run between the pump and filter.
