ITC Reef Delete v1.02 – UV-C Pest Control Light is the ultimate reefing tool for pest and aquarium maintenance
1.7x power increase, which means a lot more UVC. This, in turn, will bring more results, a little faster for users. The use is no different, because the more UVC, the better.”
Whether its destroying Aiptasia, Algaes or Flatworms – Reef Delete does it all and more thanks to its powerful UV-C beam.
The unique, proprietary wavelength destroys the DNA within a target organisms cells causing the cell function to stop and ultimately the pest shuts down and naturally decays without return. All that’s needed is a single long / multiple short daily exposures to cause devastating damage to the target organism.
This is achieved without using any chemicals or causing accidental damage to other aquarium inhabitants. Unlike chemical treatments, you cannot overdose Reef Delete on a target specimen. The more exposure given, the faster the organism will break down – and you can do it to as many as you like without fear of causing damage to your water chemistry! Get trigger happy!
Furthermore, if any similarities were to be drawn with lasers.. it acts in a completely different way to a ‘burning’ laser and is inherently safer due to no reflection and in-tank use. UV-C ensures the pest breaks down thanks to DNA damage which causes cataclysmic internal cell damage rather than burn off/cut off by the laser which can be easily repaired whereas the DNA damage cannot. See more below on maximising efficiency. The other huge plus is being able to use it inside the aquarium to ensures great angles of attack vs the limited “safe” angles via laser too!
The Reef Delete uses extremely high-quality custom-made ultra narrow beam optics on its LED including a silica quartz outer lens – all UV-C grade for ultimate transmission. This has all been built within a dive-proof quality CNC Aluminium enclosure and is rated IP68. The special optics are what helps Reef Delete punch the UV-C deep into the target organism.
To make Reef Delete safe to use, a built-in safety feature to protect accidental activation outside of the aquarium, protecting the user and accidental activation by users who shouldn’t get their hands on it, such as our kids! Reef Delete cannot be activated out of water and shuts down if removed from being under way if the power button is held down.
Reef Delete works on all pests inc. Aiptasia, Mojano, invasive Xenia, Zoanthids, Cyanobacteria, Algaes, Flatworms etc to name a few and any other soft tissued organisms that can be annoying in the reef tank – not to mention bacteria and it’s ability to sterilise any surface in the aquarium!
How Reef Delete works?
Reef Delete uses patented technology coupled with a custom handmade ultra-focused Class 3 UV-C light source to efficiently destroy the DNA inside aquarium pests.
This ultimately causes them to shut down and naturally decay without return. All that’s needed is a single long, or short daily exposures to cause devastating damage to the target organisms’ cells.
All without using any chemicals or causing accidental damage to other aquarium inhabitants.
Unlike chemical treatments, you cannot overdose Reef Delete on a target specimen.
The more exposure given, the faster the organism will break down – and you can do it to as many as you like without fear of causing damage to your water chemistry!
To make Reef Delete safe and effective to use there are a host of built-in safety features to protect accidental activation outside of the aquarium and thus the user from accidental UV-C exposure.
Reef Delete can only be used underwater for the purpose that it has been designed for. The unit features several safety features which will prevent accidental activation and safety de-activation in the event the unit is removed from water whilst the power button is still pressed.
