I know this might have been covered before, but I could not find it in the "Search" bar.
Im wondering if anyone has a graph or list of UV clarifiers, their Flow Rate for wattage or length of the Tube? Im running 950gph right now through my 13w UV filter as I got green water last week and even though it is almost clear again, I can't help but wonder if it would have been faster If I were to use my 650gph or 550gph or 420gph Pumps? Thanks for the assistance and feedback!

I ALWAYS RAN A 1000GPH THRU A 9 WATT U.V...
altho most manufacturers have a recommended flow rate...(maximum flow) my U.V has a 1800gph recommended max flow rate.
