About This Product
Coralife Turbo-Twist UV Sterilizers are the most efficient devices for ultraviolet sterilization on the market today. They feature a quartz glass sleeve with a PL compact fluorescent UV lamp surrounded by a revolutionary "Turbo-Twist" flow design to increase dwell time, which in turn increases efficacy. Continuous ultraviolet sterilization of your water eliminates single-cell algae for crystal-clear aquariums and also eradicates most harmful microorganisms on the initial pass through the chamber. Its triple-treatment time fully utilizes all the available UV output of the lamp and ensures that disease-causing pathogens cannot reproduce, thus decreasing the possibility of a disease outbreak in your system. Coralife Turbo-Twist UV Sterilizers have been designed for use in all freshwater and saltwater aquatic systems.

To accommodate the Turbo-Twist 3X UV sterilizer, you will need a powerhead, pump or canster fliter that has a flow rate between 50 and 200 gallons per hour. It is recommended that a pre-filter be used with the pump to limit the amount of debris entering the sterilizer. Use mounting bracket to hang Turbo-Twist on the outside of aquarium or sump, positioning the unit so that water can be easily returned to system. The sterilizer should be postinioned so that the cord end is at the top of the unit. The Turbo-Twist is fitted with 1/2" and 5/8" hose barbs to make hose connections easier. If 1/2" barb is desired, make sure O-ring is placed on the 5/8" barb and thead 1/2" barb over 5/8" barb. Note: Hose-barbs and hose-lock-nuts require only hand-tightening. Use flexible tubing to connect to water source. Once tubing is connected and properly positioned, turn on the water pump and check for leaks. Once water flow has been established, connect the sterilizer to the power supply.
