Installation Instructions

1.Find a suitable place for the scrubber to be placed that allows it to freely drain into your aquarium’s sump.


2. For best results remove the main and emergency drain bulkheads and install them in reverse (flange and gasket inside of the

scrubber body).


3. Plumb the drain into your sump using 1" soft tubing or PVC.


4. Plumb the emergency drain with 1/2" PVC or soft tubing allowing it to drain into your sump. We prefer to keep the emergency drain a

few inches over the water level making the water crash into the sump that produces an audible noise, letting you know when

something is not correct with the main drain.


5. Attach 1/2" soft tubing to the included feed barb fitting. We recommend soft silicone tubing for this application.


6. Adjust the flow over the algae screen so that an even sheet of water flows down the screen. Flow adjustments can be made with

either a ball valve on the feed line or with a DC style pump.


7. Plug the LED light power cord into a timer or aquarium controller and program it for a 12-hour daily photoperiod. We recommend

illuminating the algae scrubber in an opposite lighting cycle than your display tank to help stabilize your aquarium pH.


8. Monitor the algae growth and after a few weeks the algae will be ready to harvest.
