A Cintropur quartz glass ensures that it is waterproof between the UV lamp and the filter unit .
Should be changed every 5 years as passing water may have left discoloration on the glass and this impairs the effect of the UV treatment. Comes complete with O-rings and grease. It is important not to touch the glass with your fingers during the actual change to keep the glass absolutely clean. It is therefore recommended to use gloves during the change. If you touch the glass, wash it off with T-red.
Fits all our filters that contain a UV lamp, ie. "UV-2100", "Duo-UV 25W" & "Trio-UV 25W".
Thanks to the use of a quartz glass between the UV lamp and the filter unit itself, the replacement of the UV lamp becomes very easy as you do not have to drain the water from the filter container.
