I have a stainless profi, I bought one of the coastal koi uv's, have to say very good units. Can order from them with fitting for either drilling the drum if you have PVC drum or in my case i attached via a 4inch -> 1 1/2 inch rubber boot via one of the 4" outputs.
Found that the UV on the clean side helps keep bio film off the drum mesh.
