Viper Plastic 400 Watt

The Viper Series UV’s are ideal for large commercial or residential ponds, aquariums, and water features. The specially designed 4 inch 400 Watt lamps disinfect faster and have greater cell penetration capability. The compact body design has a small footprint making it easy to handle, install and maintain.  Vipers are engineered to accommodate extreme flow rates; minimum water flows must be maintained at 95 GPM. A flow switch, provided, shuts the unit off if flows fall below 95 GPM.  Aqua Ultraviolet UV’s will clear your water in 3 to 5 days sometimes overnight and keep it that way. Performance is guaranteed when sized, installed and operated according to our instructions.

What is a Sterilizer?

A sterilizer will eliminate green water and control bacteria. The Viper 400 Watt, will sterilize up to 30,000 gallons of fresh water or 3,600 gallons of salt water.

What is a Clarifier

Used as a Clarifier the Viper 400 Watt, will control green water in a freshwater environment of up to 50,000 gallons that has 50% to 75% plant coverage and partial shade.

What works best for Marine Tanks?

In marine fish tanks (No reef or live rock) a flow rate matching those shown in the 75,000 or 90,000 column will be most effective at controlling fish disease.

How do I size a UV for a Reef Tank?

In salt water reef environments choose a UV that matches your flow rate per hour in the 30,000 or 45,000 columns of our chart. Flow rates in the 75,000 and 90,000 columns will destroy the planktonic food supply for the reef.
