The VIQUA-QS-001 quartz sleeve is an important part of the UV filter treatment process, it surrounds the UV light preventing it from coming in contact with the water. UV light is transmitted through the quartz sleeve and purifies the water. With use the sleeve will accumulate minerals from the water which must be cleaned about every 3 months to prevent the UV treatment from becoming less effective. Once the mineral layer becomes permanent and can not be removed the sleeve needs to be replaced. Protect your UV lamp and keep your system running properly with the Replacement Quartz Sleeve for Viqua VH200. Order yours today!
