If your skimmer was purchased in 2007 or before please read the following:
Image view is looking straight down into skimmer with lid removed (right side adapter plate shown). This UV unit fits in the UV chamber of current models of Savio Full-Size SkimmerFilters as seen in this photo. If your UV chambers look different you will need an adapter plate to make this work.
What is the difference between an ultraviolet sterilizer and an ultraviolet clarifier?Actually, there is not a difference in the units themselves, the difference is in the ratings provided for the appropriate pond size and flow rate. By following UV sterilizer ratings the pond should have clear water despite most other conditions and the UV will also be more effective against controlling microscopic pathogens.
A UV clarifier rating typically means that you may not have crystal clear water all the way to the bottom. It also assumes that the pond has good plant coverage (greated than 50%) and adequate biological filtration. When following UV clarifier ratings it is a good idea to oversize the UV to help ensure cleaner water.

This UV unit works very well BUT it is very delicate. When I got it out this spring after carefully storing it in the original box it didn't work. Very expensive for 1 years use.
