I've also heard UV sterolizers help to kill the parasites in the floating stage, is this true?

UV will only kill the ones that actually go through it. The vast majority of the parasites won't.

Copper or hyposalinity are your best bets if you want to rid yourself of it.

ATJ's Marine Aquarium Site - Reference - Hyposalinity Treatment

My suggestion would be hyposalinity. The above link explains it.
