Submariner UV Sterilizer

I was thinking of getting a UV Sterilizer and was doing some research. Has anyone used a Submariner? http://www.jbjlighting.com/sys_uv.html
It looks simple to use and maintain. I'm only looking to use one on a 30 gal and maybe one on a 40 gal. Plmk if you have one and if you like it. Thanks!
Jim

I was looking at that one first. Do I have to buy another pump for it? I'm guessing it's not submersible. I probably have to hob on the outside of the tank. Thanks for the advice.

Each one requires a different amount of flow, or better each can handle different amounts of flow. I would suggest a dedicated pump for it. HTH
