When should we use an Ultraviolet light?
An ultraviolet light is good for ridding a pond of pea-soup algae. It is very important to have a properly sized light because if the exposure time is too small, the system will not be very effective. The size of the UV light is based on how much water passes through it.
We like Emperor Aquatic lights because they have a long life. Many other lights are rated at peak (new) performance rather than at 60% lamp strength.U/V lights will not work with string algae since it does not pass through it.
