Quartz Sleeve Replacement Cleaning


ALWAYS consult with Sanatoga Water Conditioning before self-service for proper procedures.

Quartz Sleeve Replacement Cleaning

  • Remove the lamp.


  • Shut off the water supply and drain all lines.


  • Remove lowest connection on the disinfection system and drain the UV chamber (use a smell bucket under the unit to prevent a spill) Note: on S12Q-PA and SSM-39 systems, the reactor is provided with a ¼” drain port. On this system simply remove the drain plug and allow water to drain into a bucket.


  • Remove aluminum gland nuts from the chamber, checking for the free-floating spring inside sleeve at opposite end to the lamp connection (do not allow quartz sleeve to fall).


  • Carefully remove the o rings from the quartz sleeve. As the o ring may tend to adhere to the quartz sleeve, it is recommended to replace the O rings annually.


  • Clean the outside of the quartz sleeve with a cloth soaked in CLR, vinegar or some other mild acid and then rinse.


  • Re-assemble the quartz sleeve with spring in the UV chamber allowing the sleeve to protrude an equal distance from both ends of the UV chamber.


  • Wet the o rings and slide onto each end of the quartz sleeve and reassemble the gland nuts (hand tight is sufficient).


  • Re-tighten all connections, turn on the water and check for leaks.


  • Plug in ballast and verify the POWER-ON LED is illuminated and ballast power-up sequence operates.

      "Never disappoints! I've had two water tests conducted on my home. During the most recent John shared his knowledge and expertise on not only the Well tank pump that was in serious need of replacement but also options for my water softener. I never felt pressured to commit to something I didn't need. They made sure I had all the information and let me make a decision based on what made sense for me. Great experience from first call to final product!"

      "We are new to the area and new to well water. We have used Sanatoga twice now - for routine maintenance and a water softener install. Juan is always on time and very attentive. We feel fortunate we have someone who cares about our house as if it were his own and a company we can count on in the years to come.
      Thank you for excellent service!"

      "We have used Sanatoga Water Conditioning as a residential client as well as for our business customers for several years now. I could not be more happy with the customer service and professionalism that they provide. I always get a cheerful and helpful person on the other end of the line when I call the office, and the technicians who installed our water treatment system were clean, professional and answered all of my questions. I can definitely recommend Sanatoga, 5 Stars."
