What is the purpose of the Quartz Sleeve?

The Quartz Sleeve is a high-quality glass casing cover designed to protect the UV-C lamp from water, debris, and other contaminants. By doing so, it ensures the proper functioning of the UV sterilization process in pond filters like Vitronic 11, Biopress, Filtoclear, and Filtral models.

Is this Quartz Sleeve compatible with all the listed models?

Yes, this Quartz Sleeve is specifically designed to fit the Vitronic 11, Biopress 6000 and 10000, Filtoclear 3000, 6000, 11000, and 15000, as well as Filtral 5000.

Why use a quartz material for the sleeve?

Quartz is a preferred material for the sleeve because it is highly durable, transparent, and resistant to temperature changes. Its transparency allows UV-C light to easily penetrate and effectively purify the water, while its durability ensures a long-lasting and reliable performance.

How often should the Quartz Sleeve be replaced?

The Quartz Sleeve should be checked periodically for any signs of damage, cloudiness or build-up of debris. While there is no exact timeline for replacement, it's recommended to replace it if you notice any signs of damage or reduced UV-C transmission caused by debris or mineral deposits.

How do I clean the Quartz Sleeve?

To clean the Quartz Sleeve, first turn off your pond filter system and remove the UV-C lamp safely. Then, gently wipe the Quartz Sleeve with a soft cloth soaked in a mild cleaning solution or vinegar. Rinse thoroughly with water and allow it to dry before reassembling the unit.

Can I use the Quartz Sleeve in saltwater or chlorinated water systems?

Yes, this Quartz Sleeve is suitable for use in both saltwater and chlorinated water systems. Thanks to its durability and resistance to temperature changes, it can withstand various water conditions without compromising its UV-C light transmission efficacy.
