Finally, a constant reference & guide aimed at the serious hobbyist, aquatic student & retailer. All the information the user needs to know is presented wherever possible in an easy to use graphical format. At least 80% of the material is brand new & not available elsewhere. New theories are presented & proven by analysis. The reader can skip the analysis if desired or follow the analysis using an Appendix which quickly reviews the simple math required to follow the proofs. The book has many illustrated examples & additional problems with worked out solutions. Testimonials from aquatic experts, trade magazine editors & retailers state that this is a "must have book". The book clearly shows how to save time & money & protect the user's investment by selection of the proper equipment. It shows how to install the necessary life support equipment & operate the systems correctly. Contents include: Devices & Definitions, Duration of Water Exchanges, Sterilizer Selection, Theory of Ultraviolet Sterilizers, Reactors, Venturis, Protein Skimmers, Water Pumps, Installation Hydraulics, Heat Requirements, & Ozone Sterilization. Written by an engineer & aquatic device manufacturer who has published 6 books, it is presently available from: Dimension Engineering Press, P.O. Box 2457, Oxnard, CA 93033. Ph.
