Healthy water for fish with disinfection

Aquariums and Freshwater ornamental ponds can be fitted with state-of-the-art filtration and sterilization reactor equipment. The ultraviolet treatment technique sterilizes water and improves water quality in both color (lighter) and the elimination of small harmful organisms such as microalgae and phytoplankton.

If you’re looking for an effective disinfection system for freshwater aquariums and leisure ponds, our full range of freshwater UV reactors can be consulted online, and design calculations can be carried out on this page.

Disinfection system benefits

In addition to producing healthy water, free from any risk of contamination by micro-organisms, UV water treatment is also part of an environmental approach:

  • Regarding health, water treatment without the addition of harmful pool products guarantees allergy- and respiratory ailment-free swimming (non-chemical).
  • It also provides comfort by ensuring crystal-clear, odor-free water.
  • The absence of chlorine guarantees an environmentally-friendly and healthy process.
  • UV treatment offers real savings thanks to longer plant life and simple, reliable, long-lasting equipment.
  • Last but not least, installation and maintenance are quick and easy.

Design advice: UV disinfection for freshwater aquariums and leisure ponds

On the UV reactors for fresh water page, many solutions are proposed (up to a unit flow rate of 130 m3/h). For higher flow rates, up to 130 m3/h, please contact us!

  • Select “Freshwater “
  • Select the water source to be potabilized, e.g. “Aquariums and freshwater ornamental ponds”.
  • Enter the flow rate to be treated (for example 25 m3/h)
  • Adjust the cost of electricity in your country (for example 0.09€ for France; 0.23€ for Germany)
  • Keep 30 mJ / cm² (or adapt)
  • Specify the temperature of the water (normally, between 5 and 40°c is sufficient)
  • Please enter your email address, we will send you the design right away

In any case, to ensure optimal disinfection and to determine whether prefilters are necessary, it is recommended that a source water analysis be performed with these parameters:

  • Iron
  • Hardness
  • Turbidity
  • Manganese
  • Suspended solids (TSS)
  • UV Transmittance
