think i'd be worried of maybe getting covered in crud and maybe leaves if they have a tree near pond,wouldnt they be better putting it in centre easy section,i was planning doint that on mine,just dangling one down cleaning pipe part and putting something like a piece of dark plastic over easy to stop getting blinded by uv,andi

Installed that uv last week used a pipe clip with a long bolt nut to secure it in place just drilled a hole above water level attatched clip round uv and tightened it in place works a treat to secure it in place in inlet of nexus my mates well pleased with how it’s working and the flow of water going past it seems to be keeping it clean
