Identifying the Wattage of your UV Sterilizer

There are two ways to determine the wattage of your UV Sterilizer. Look for the wattage amount marked in black text at the non-connector end of your lamp (example: "40W"). You can also measure the length of your lamp and compare with the chart below.

12-watt Lamp 11 ¾ inches in length
18-watt Lamp 14 ½ inches in length
25-watt Lamp 18 ½ inches in length
40-watt Lamp 32 inches in length
65-watt Lamp 61 ¾ inches in length

Identifying the Model of your UV Sterilizer

To determine the model of your UV Sterilizer, measure the PVC body diameter and compare your results to the three guidelines below.

If your UV Sterilizer has a body diameter of 2 inches, than it's a SMART UV Lite
If your UV Sterilizer has a body diameter of 3 inches, than it's a SMART UV Sterilizer
If your UV Sterilizer has a body diameter of 5 inches, than it's a SMART HO UV Sterilizer
