    Savio Skimmer UV

    Is anyone using the dual 57 watt UV's (114 watt total) in their savio skimmer?
    Are you happy with them?
    Do you think this would be enough for a 12,500 GAL pond?

    Hi Steve,

    I'm running two 57 Watt Emperor Aquatics UVs in my Savio skimmer and am happy with performance to date. The pond is only ~6,000 gallons however.

    Yes. The water's clear to the bottom drains at five feet. This is a relatively new pond. It's not in full sun, but it gets plenty of sunlight during the day. water temps currently around seventy degrees.

    I have been starting-up some new filtration and adding some Microbe Lift to assist, so I've been keeping the UV off for a while - still no visibility problems at this point.
