This pump will only work if the pump is fully submerged in water. The UV light will kill the algae bacteria in the microscopic stage and help keep the algae in your pond from coming back. Our submersible UV pump will provide that waterfall effect you are looking for while killing the algae and bacteria so you have crisp clean water. Keeping a clear water garden pond in the warm and hot summer months involves these key ingredients: Proper filtration (especially biological) and circulation, cleaning and maintenance and proper chemistry such as pH and feeding.
Although not always necessary in a well planted, well shaded and well filtered aquarium; they are still very useful. UVs help with algae control, disease prevention and the Redox potential (which is very important for healthy fish and proper filtration).
