FLOW RATES
Your evoUV will withstand operating pressures of 20 metres head. This means that
evoUVs are able to operate with most of the circulating pumps commonly used.
Please note: For optimum performance we recommend that you pass the entire
volume of your pond through the evoUV unit approximately once every two hours.
Please also note that we recommend a minimum flow rate equivalent to passing
the entire pond volume through the unit once every three hours.

It is important to note that there are factors that affect how you select the right size
of evoUV for your pond.
Your evoUV will keep your pond clear of green water up to its maximum capacity as
stated on the box for the evo30 and evo55. The evo110 is an effective unit and has
multiple uses. It can be used on large ponds, retail installations, aquaculture and
other commercial aquaria installations. Please see your local Evolution Aqua dealer
for details.

INSTALLING YOUR evoUV
Before you do this, it is important that you familiarise yourself with the diagrams
and parts list on pages 4 and 5.
The two universal hosetails supplied with the evo30 and evo55, should be screwed
into the inlet / outlet at either end of the unit. Hosetails are not provided with the
evo110. Hosetails should be tightened using hand pressure only. Ensure that the
O-Rings are in position before assembling. Please note that there is no correct
direction of flow through the unit, either end of the unit may be used as the inlet
or outlet.
POSITIONING AND MOUNTING THE evoUV
evoUV units are splashproof but not waterproof. The unit can be positioned either
on a horizontal or vertical surface, but never on its back. This is to prevent a build
up of water on the cover plate face and to protect the circuit board.
Please note that when installing the evoUV horizontally, you must install it with
the cover plate reading the correct way up (so the cover plate is user friendly).
Although splashproof, your evoUV must not be submerged in water or placed in a
position where water may collect around the unit.
Fix your evoUV into position using the stainless steel brackets attached to the
evoUV. Screws and washers are not provided. On the evo30 and evo55 models
a third bracket is attached to the rear serial number plate. This bracket is angled
down during transit. Turn the bracket upright to install. There is no need to tighten
up the screws.
When fixing to the wall please leave a 1 metre gap at one end of the evoUV to
enable bulb / quartz sleeve removal and maintenance.
If installing the unit prior to or without a pond filter, we would recommend that the
use of a pre-filter is used on the water pump to prevent excess solids from being
pumped into the unit. The evoUV may be connected to the water flow on any
pumped line, this could be, for instance, a skimmer line or any other additional
pumped line. The two most common forms of set up are pump fed and gravity fed.
These are illustrated on the following pages.

CONNECTION TO YOUR PIPEWORK
Connection with flexible hose (evo30 and evo55 only)
The evo30 and evo55 is supplied with two universal hosetails to take 1”, 1¼”,
and 1½” diameter flexible hose. If you are using one of the two larger sizes, the
smaller sections of the hosetails must be cut off to ensure sufficient water flow and
to prevent possible damage to the pump. We recommend that you use the largest
diameter hose available. The hosetails should be trimmed away from the unit as
shown in the diagram below. Once the hosetails have been trimmed, attach them
to the unit as described on page 7. Secure the flexi-hose to the hosetail with a
stainless steel hose clip (not provided).

electricity supply.
11
COMMISSIONING & SWITCHING ON THE evoUV
Before you run your evoUV, you should first check that you have installed the unit
and pipework correctly.
Check that the gland nuts and the end caps are tight.
Having taken a last look at your pipework to ensure that everything looks right,
switch on the circulating pump, and check for any leaks.
Only after you have satisfied yourself that the evoUV is installed correctly should you
switch on the electricity supply to the unit.
Your evoUV is now up and running.
12
ROUTINE MAINTENANCE
UV Bulb Replacement
ALWAYS ISOLATE THE UNIT FROM ANY ELECTRICITY AND WATER SUPPLIES
BEFORE CARRYING OUT MAINTENANCE ON THE UNIT.
Please Note: The evo110 model has been specifically designed so that if either
bulb fails, both will go out. This enables you to quickly identify and replace the bulb
which is not working. Otherwise you may not notice that a bulb has failed, and that
your unit is effectively only working at half its potential level of output.
Evolution Aqua’s UV Bulbs are manufactured to the highest standards, as such it is
rare that a bulb fails. If this happens to you we would strongly recommend that you
replace both bulbs in the evo110. See page 14.
To Change the Bulb:
1. U
nscrew a gland nut from one end of the evoUV. This will be the end where you
intend to remove the UV bulb.
2. U
nscrew the end cap from the same end of the evoUV and slide the end cap
down the cable.
3. G
ently pull the bulb socket away from the UV bulb at the exposed end,
taking care not to disturb the quartz sleeve.
4. Carefully take the old bulb out, taking care not to disturb the quartz sleeve.
5. R
eplace the new bulb by sliding it carefully into the quartz sleeve. Ensure that all
connectors are dry.
P
LEASE NOTE: Make sure that the two pins on the end of the bulb locate into
the bulb socket at the closed end of the evoUV. You should feel the pins click
into position. Once you have felt the bulb click into position, the bulb is engaged.
WARNING: If the end caps / electrical connections get wet during this procedure,
please ensure that they are thoroughly dried before re-connecting.
6. R
econnect the bulb socket.
7. Screw the end cap back on – FINGER TIGHT ONLY.
8. Tighten up the gland nut and sleeve – FINGER TIGHT ONLY.
As already mentioned, it is essential that the unit is protected from frost during
the winter months, or disconnected from water and electricity supplies and stored
indoors. During the spring and summer season, the quartz sleeve, which separates
the UV bulb from the water passing through the unit, will need to be cleaned two
or three times. This is essential, as dirt or limescale building up on the quartz
sleeve will inhibit the penetration of the ultraviolet light into the water and affect the
efficient working of the unit.
13
Replacing / Cleaning Quartz sleeve
ALWAYS ISOLATE THE UNIT FROM ANY ELECTRICITY AND WATER SUPPLIES
BEFORE CARRYING OUT MAINTENANCE ON THE UNIT.
To Replace / Clean the Quartz Sleeve:
1.Unscrew a gland nut from one end of the evoUV. This will be the end where
you want to remove the UV bulb / quartz Sleeve.
2. Unscrew the end cap from the same end of the evoUV and slide the end cap
down the cable.
3.Gently pull the bulb socket away from the UV bulb at the exposed end,
taking care not to disturb the quartz sleeve.
4. Carefully take the old bulb out, taking care not to disturb the quartz sleeve.
5. Now remove the gland nut from the other end of the evoUV.
6. Unscrew the end cap containing the bulb socket from the same end
of the evoUV.
7.Place the two end caps containing the bulb sockets out of the way on top of
the evoUV.
8.Carefully remove and keep safe the two O-Rings from quartz sleeve. There may
be some water that drains from the unit.
9.Gently slide out the sleeve, taking care not to allow it to drop inside the
UV body.
10. Clean the sleeve and polish with a soft cloth or paper towel.
If you live in a hard water area, you may get limescale on the quartz sleeve;
this can be easily removed by using vinegar or a cold water descaler.
11. Replace the quartz sleeve by sliding it back into the evoUV, ensuring that an
equal amount of the sleeve is showing at each end.
12. Slide the two O-Rings back into position on each end of the quartz sleeve.
13.Now carefully slide the bulb back inside the quartz sleeve.
WARNING: If the end caps / electrical connections get wet during this procedure,
please ensure that they are thoroughly dried before re-connecting.
14. Attach one bulb socket to one end of the bulb.
15.On the same end screw on the end cap, but not the gland nut, finger tight only.
16.Now install the bulb socket, end cap, sleeve and gland nut at the opposite end
of the bulb – FINGER TIGHT ONLY.
17. Screw the gland nut on to the other end cap.
14
In Built Protection
The evoUV range of pond clarifiers have thermal overload and internal fuse protection.
Thermal Overload Protection - This will automatically switch off the unit should the
temperature exceed the maximum operating temperature limits.
Internal Fuse - This protects the electrical components in the event of a power surge.
Please note: This internal fuse cannot be replaced.
15
TROUBLE SHOOTING
My pond water is not clear, is this due to the evoUV not working correctly?
Koi, goldfish and other pond inhabitants can cause murky water by stirring up the
bottom of the pond. This murky water should not be confused with suspended algae.
Always check all your pond filtration is working and is being maintained correctly
prior to checking the evoUV.
If the UV bulb is not lit, then you need to investigate the power to your unit.
• Has your RCD tripped? If yes, check your wiring and reset.
•E
xamine the UV bulb for signs of failure, and replace if necessary.
• Is the UV bulb fitted correctly? Making sure that the power to the unit is turned off,
unscrew the end caps and ensure correct fitting, and switch power back on.
The unit worked well when I first installed it but recently my pond has gradually
gone green again – what is wrong?
Quartz sleeve may have become dirty and requires cleaning (see page 14). Also
make sure you have the right model for your pond size. Ensure your pond filtration is
removing fish waste and debris efficiently. Dirt in ponds will affect the efficiency of the
evoUV. Check that your pond water volume is pumping through the evoUV every 2 to
3 hours.
Only after you have carried out these checks should you contact your Evolution Aqua
dealer, who will then be able to advise you further.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How often should I change the UV bulb?
The evoUV bulb has an effective lifespan of 9000 hours, but it is an accepted
practice to replace a UV bulb once a year, at the start of every pond season.
How long after I install the unit will my pond become clear?
There are many factors which affect how long your evoUV will take to clear your
pond, such as the levels of nutrients available to the algae, the water temperature
and the level of sunlight. Assuming that you have installed the correct size unit, most
ponds should clear within 3-14 days. However, this may take up to six weeks in some
instances.
Does the evoUV harm fish, plants or wildlife?
Ultraviolet bulbs leave no residues, and only affect the water pumped through the
unit. Unlike many chemical treatments, your evoUV will not harm the plants and
animals living in the water.
16
Is the evoUV suitable for salt water use?
The evoUV is manufactured from materials that will not corrode in salt water and it
is safe to use your evoUV in marine systems.
Can I use my evoUV if I am using any treatments for my fish?
Always check the manufacturer’s instructions before using any water treatment as
they will tell you whether it’s recommended that the evoUV can be switched off or on.
How long can I leave the unit running?
evoUVs have been designed and manufactured to the highest standards, and should
be run 24 hours a day, every day, from mid March to early October, depending on
the weather conditions. If the unit is frost protected it may be left running throughout
the winter. Otherwise, the unit should be removed, drained and stored safely for
the winter.
Can I bury the unit underground?
No. The evoUV, although weatherproof, is not suitable for installing in any situation
that may be subject to immersion in water.
Can it be used with ozone?
Yes. The evoUV is safe to use with ozone units, however, the O-Rings on the
hosetails are not. When using ozone units please use rigid pipe.
When replacing the bulb I cannot locate it into the bulb socket at the opposite end
of the evoUV?
Please follow the procedure for cleaning / replacing the quartz sleeve on page 14.
This will explain the correct procedure for removing both end caps and sockets and
explain the method for easy installation.
