Hi All

Do you need to clean your UV globe from time to time ? Does the alge alien and other stuff What a Face not cling to the globe (making the globe dull ?) and affect the effectivness of the UV rays ? scratch

Never done it but almost sure it will have an effect. I have seen very dirty tubes, especially after heavy PP treatments which make the tube brown.

However, the algae will not accumulate on the tube. It will not get a change to grow there because the UV rays will kill them.

Eugene,

As die tube bruin is, kan dit met skoon alkohol of brand spirits skoon gemaak word.
'n Vuil globe verswak die sterkte en benadeel die werking daarvan.

Ek het ook al die bruin tubes gesien - dit het my laat wonder. Dit maak sin wat julle se.
Baie dankie vir die raad !!

Dit hang af waar dit sit in jou sisteem.

As die UV na die bio is dan is my andtwoord NEE op die skoonmaak. As dit is voor die meganies dan is my antwoord JA.

In die afgelope 5 jaar het ek nog nooit nodig gehad om dit skoon temaak nie.

My UV sit na my sand en Bio filter. Hoe sensetief is die globes ?
Ek het n ultra-zap 55w , en die globe het skaars n week gehou. Dis n philips globe. Ek kannie sien waar dit geblaas het nie , dis ook nerens stukkend nie. ek het die UV geskuif die naweek - maar ek het die lig mooi hanteer. Krag was natuurlik af , glad nie die lig droog laat hardloop nie.
En R450 vir n week is bietjie rof.... Mad

Eugene, is jy seker dit is geblaas, hulle blaas nie maklik nie. try net weer jou ou een. wat gewoontlik gaan is die starter. Ja as dit geblaas het dan kan jy probeer terug vat maar ek glo nie.

R450,00 was n baie goedkoop prys.

Hulle is maar sensitief soos n neon.

hoop jy kom reg.

Dankie vir Almal se raad. My 55W Ultrazap het geblaas / uitgebrand. Die transformer is sommer geel en lyk of dit 100 jaar oud is. Die connectors is almal bros - toe ek aan die twee vat waar die 2 drade ingaan toe verbrokkel dit sommer. Die hele housing unit is sommer swart aan die een kant - die starter het n gat in gebrand...
Sal maar n nuwe een gaan koop.
