    In-Tank Germicidal UV Light 


    In-Tank Germicidal UV Light helps to control and prevent the growth of bacteria inside of your storage tank.

    The Standard In-Tank UV Light is designed to be placed directly inside of the storage tank, where it will float on the water's surface inside of the tank. 

    While the In-Tank UV Light's ballast remains outside of the tank inside of a weatherproof casing, it is connected to the UV bulb by a heavy duty power cable. 



    • Low Maintenance Costs. 
    • Does not use chemicals to control the bacterial counts inside of the storage tank.
    • Does not require additional plumbing or piping, as it is suspended inside the actual tank.


    Keep in Mind 


    • The In tank UV light does require electricity to operate. The In-Tank UV Light does not come with a storage tank or cord & plug for connecting to a 220v power supply.
    • The Quartz sleeve and UV bulb are made of glass and can be damaged if mishandled. Take great care when transporting and installing the in-tank Germicidal UV Light 
    • The Effectiveness of the Germicidal UV light is directly influenced by the clarity of the water around it. If there is a great deal of dirt, sediment and suspended particles then the UV light's effectiveness will be directly affected. If your water does have a high amount of dirt and particles present, then we would recommend placing some type of sediment filter before the tank, such as a Disc Filter, or Triple Big Blue System, or AFM Glass Media Vessel

    Operating Conditions for the Standard In-tank UV Light 

    • Water Temperature: 5°C - 45°C
    • Tank Diameter : <2m 
    • Tank Height : 1m (Min) to 2m (Max)


    Dimensions of the Standard In-Tank UV Light 

    Then Standard In-tank UV light is approximately 92cm long.

    We would recommend measuring your storage tank to ensure that the unit will fit in it, before placing an order with Filtershop. 



    This Appliance contains a UV-C Emitter. Germicidal Lamps Emit UV-C Radiation Harmful to Skin and Eyes. 

    Ensure Power is OFF during Installation and before inspecting the tank inside. 

    PVC Threaded and Glue Fittings

    PVC(Polyvinyl chloride) fittings are used to connect sections of pipes or tubes, adapt to different sizes or shapes, and controlling the flow of water. There are two predominant types of PVC fittings namely PVC Glue Fittings and PVC Threaded Fittings. The difference between the two is that PVC Glue Fittings result in permanent joints and PVC Threaded Fittings are semi-permanent and can be replaced. PVC Glue fittings are joined with primer and cement- a chemical solvent that melts the surface of the PVC and then quickly re-hardens to fuse the pieces together. This results in an airtight, leak-proof bond similar to what you get with welding metal. An example of such a fitting is a PVC Glue Reducing Socket which is used to join together two pieces of PVC pipes with different diameters. Another example would be a  90 Degree Elbow which is used to connect two pipes of the same diameter at an angle of 90 degrees.PVC Threaded fittings utilise a simple threaded connection whereby replaceable 'male threaded' are screwed into 'female threaded'.Male threads have a thread on the outside of the fitting and female threads have a thread on the inside. When you thread the fitting in, it compresses against the other threads.PTFE tape is used to thread these together and the proper way to assemble threaded fittings is to finger tighten, then add one to two turns but no more. An example of a threaded fitting is a Reducing Nipple Male Threaded which is used to connect between two female threads of different diameters.
