Classic Series – Classic Series Sterilizers are perfect for both experienced and non-experienced end users. Ultraviolet light sanitization is versatile technology used for disinfecting water, other opaque liquids, hard surfaces and air. Using the same germicidal rays as the sun, but hundreds of times stronger, Ultraviolet water purification systems offer a reliable, cost effective, environmentally friendly alternative to chemicals and their resulting bi-products. 
UV Sterilization is a purely physical process so it doesn’t alter water’s chemistry, taste, smell or pH.
The Classic Series ultraviolet water purification system is compact and lightweight, ideal for ponds, aquariums, and water features. Classic Series units are designed for maximum ultraviolet light sanitization and effectiveness.
