Hello, Would it be safe/possible to utilize in a 75gal aquarium?
Answer by ChewyMay 26, 2018
This ultraviolet sterilizer is intended for use in both fresh and salt water systems, as well as pond environments.

Which end is input and which is output
Answer by ChewyOct 02, 2017
The piece closest to the cord would be the input, and the piece on the further end is the output.

How do you change the bulb. I can’t find directions for this
Answer by ChewyJun 11, 2019
To change the bulb in this sterilizer, press in the button on the side then twist counter clockwise about 1/12th rotation. The unit should come apart so you can get to the catch (which that locks horizontally). Then, remove the threaded cylinder that holds the outer glass tube. Once the glass tube is removed the bulb merely unplugs.

Do the hose barbs (hose tails) shown in the picture come complete with the Jebao 18w UV sterilizer?
Answer by ChewyMar 01, 2018
Yes the 18 watt UV sterilizer comes as a complete kit.

This thing is awesome. You can literally watch the dirty water go in and come out clear! I wish I would have bought it when I first build my pond. Drastically reduces maintenance and fish are so happy.

It works great

My little 400 gallon pond was like pea soup, you couldn't see one inch below the surface. It took about a week, but it's clear now.

I haven’t set this up yet but it appears to be well designed and sturidily constructed. It should, at 36 watts, keep my 2200 gallon pond clear, as my previous 13 watt UV did. Overall I am pleased with this sterilizer.

UV sterilizer

Bought this because I needed a new uv light for 2500 gallon pond. Was going to wait until next season, but it got extremely warm here on the east coast again and my pond got cloudy with algae bloom, even though the water was not green. I've paid over $200 dollars for a uv light in the past, so needless to say I was a little hesitant to purchase this. I did some research and found it had great reviews, so I purchased one. All I can say is WOW. Received on Sunday, was in the pond by 10:30 am and by Wednesday evening my pond is crystal clear. Thank you Chewy. Also the light bulb is included. Very happy customer.
