connector on the bulb needs to match the four holes on the ballast end. DO NOT use excessive force or this may damage the parts. Slide the bulb into the quartz sleeve through the quartz cap. Gently push the bulb all the way in. Screw on the moisture resistant cap of the ballast connection onto the quartz sleeve cap. Hand tighten only. Your AquaStep UV Sterilizer is ready for use.

Side or Back of the Aquarium Installation
A1. Install the AquaStep UV Sterilizer on the side or back of the aquarium by pushing the mounting bracket spring attachment located at the top with your thumb and hang the unit over the edge of the aquarium. It may be necessary to move the triangular portion of the water fall assembly to one side so that the mounting bracket can be pushed far enough to clear the moulding on the top edge of the aquarium. A2. Make sure the unit is completely level by adjusting the plastic screws located on each side at the bottom of the AquaStep. A3. Install the power head pump (not included with the unit) inside the aquarium in the desired location following the instructions of the pump manufacturer. A4. Attach one end of the 1/2” ID x 11/16” OD flexible tubing to the outlet side of the power head pump. A5. Attach the other end of the flexible tubing to the 3/4” MPT x 1/2” barb elbow located on the top inlet side of the AquaStep. In most cases the flexible tubing will need to be cut to the proper length.

B4. Screw one 3/4” MPT x 1/2” barb elbow fitting into top inlet port. Screw in the elbow so that the barb portion is pointing straight up vertically. Screw in the other elbow fitting into the outlet port located at the top of the unit and align the barb portion straight up vertically. B5. Install the power head pump (not included with unit) inside the aquarium in the desired location following the instructions of the pump manufacturer. B6. Attach one end 1/2” ID x 11/16” OD flexible tubing on the outlet side of the power head pump. B7. Attach the other end of the flexible tubing to the 3/4” MPT x barb elbow located at the top inlet side of the AquaStep. Cut the tubing to the proper length. Attach a hose clamp and tighten accordingly. B8. Attach the rest of the tubing to the 3/4” MPT x 1/2” barb elbow located at the top outlet side of the AquaStep. Attach a hose clamp and tighten accordingly. B9. Place the other end of the flexible tubing up and over the side or back of the aquarium so that the water returns to the aquarium and agitates the surface to aerate the system. In some cases it may be desirable to connect the flexible tubing to a rigid plastic “U” or “J” tube (not supplied in this unit) that hangs on the aquarium. Attach a hose clamp to the rigid tube and tighten accordingly. We recommend using the CustomFlo Water System in place of the “U” or “J” tube for professional looking installlations.
D2. Screw in the plugs on each side of the bottom manifold. Make sure the plug “O” rings are seated properly. In most cases, the bottom inlet ports will not be needed in this type of installation. In steps D2 and D4, refer to installation drawings in section #B (Beside the Aquarium). D3. Wrap Teflon tape on the male threads of the two 3/4” MPT x 1/2” barb elbow fittings provided. Wrap each fitting 5-7 times with the tape. D4. Screw one 3/4” MPT x 1/2” barb elbow fitting into the top inlet port. Screw in the other elbow fitting into the outlet port located at the top of the unit. D5. Turn off the valve on the outlet side of the canister filter and completely drain the flexible tubing on the outlet side of the canister filter. In most cases, it will be necessary to remove the “U” or “J” tube from the back of the aquarium. Cut the flexible tubing on the outlet side of the canister filter and plumb in line a by-pass valve and “tee” which will divert only a portion of the water from the canister filter and into the inlet port of the top manifold. Attach hose clamp and tighten accordingly. D6. Attach one end of the 1/2” ID x 11/16” OD flexible tubing to the 3/4” MPT x 1/2” barb elbow located at the top outlet side of the filter. Attach hose clamp and tighten accordingly. D7. Place the other end of the tubing up and over the side or back of the aquarium so that the water returns to the aquarium and agitates the surface to aerate the system. In some cases, flexible tubing can be attached to a rigid plastic “U” or “J” tube (not supplied in this unit) that hangs on the aquarium. Attach hose clamp to the rigid tube and tighten accordingly. We recommend using the CustomFlo Water System in place of the “U” or “J” tube for professional looking installlations. D8. Adjust the by-pass valve to direct appropriate amount of water into the UV. See Size and Specification Chart for proper flow rate.
C. Hanging on a Wet/Dry Filter Installation
C1. Carefully follow all steps in section A (Side or Back of the Aquarium).
Beside the Aquarium Installation
B1. Place filter on base in desired location next to the aquarium. Make sure the unit is level on the base. B2. Screw in plugs on each side of the bottom manifold. Make sure plug “O” rings are seated properly. The bottom inlet ports will not be needed in this type of installation. 2
D. Underneath Aquarium with a Canister Filter
D1. Place AquaStep on base in desired location next to the canister filter. Position the AquaStep so that it can be plumbed on the outlet side of the canister filter. 3
