Hozelock Vorton UVC

The Vorton offers the optimum UVC power for pond sizes up to 18500 litres. Higher powered UVC bulbs will help maximise the elimination of algae.
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 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.

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 see an improvement in days and achieve complete clarity in 6 to 8 weeks.
If you are already using a combined filter /UV system, but the UV part of the filter has ceased to work, a separate UVC such as the Hozelock Vorton can be connected into the hose run between the pump and filter.

All types of filters have a maximum flow, it is important that the pump you intend to use does not exceed the recommended flow specified on each model, as this will push the pond water too quickly through the unit which will affect the performance, as the water will not have enough contact time with Ultra Violet for it to clump the algae cells together.

All models include the lamp, and it is recommended that these are changed every six months to maintain optimum performance
 

Product Specification;

All models will accept hose diameters from 20 - 40mm
