Boosts Water Purity

CMP leads the industry in alternative pool sanitizers. The new CMP Wave UV-C 50 germicidal UV light system is their latest generation model and can take your salt pool's water purity to the next level. The Wave UV-C 50 uses a safe natural sanitation process to reduce chemical demand and inactivates micro-organisms (bacteria, viruses, and parasites - especially pathogens that are resistant to chlorination). This added sanitation greatly extends the life span of your system's salt cell. The Wave UV-C 50 helps you achieve extraordinarily pure & safe pool water, and one unit can treat pools up to 50,000 gallons.

The Wave UV-C 50 is simple to install simple - wire it to your pool circulation timer (110V/240V), and use its unions to connect it to the plumbing (after the filter). The UV-C 50 lamps emit safe high-intensity germicidal light rays, which disinfect the water passing through its high-capacity flow chamber. This also destroys organic matter, swimmer waste, and chemical byproducts to help achieve maximum water quality.

  • Produces UV-C rays at a 254 nanometer wavelength to destroy harmful contaminants, which greatly reduces the chlorination demand of your water.
  • Inactivates chlorine-resistant microorganisms like Cryptosporidium Parvum, Giardia, etc...
  • High capacity flow chamber, up to 100 gallons per minute. Low power usage, only 96 watts.
  • Works perfectly in tandem with your salt system. UV-C sanitation that reduces the workload of your salt chlorine generator, which provides the necessary residual sanitation in your pool.
  • Used together with your salt system, you can have a pristine low-chemical pool.

Built-in pressure sensor allows it to work automatically in tandem with your circulation pump. Note: If the UV-C 50 is installed at a lower elevation than the pool water, a Flow Switch Kit is required to ensure the system does not turn on without adequate flow. Contact Customer Service to order the kit.

Q: Do you have to replace this whole thing when it wears out?

Asked by: Des H - 10/2/2020
A: No, only the two internal UV bulbs need to be replaced, just like any other light bulb. The bulbs are recommended to be replaced every 18 months, and are pretty easily replaced.

Q: how does this work and can i use it with my hayward pump filter and saltwater system?

Asked by: Carla - 10/15/2020
A: This uses high-powered UV light to disinfect the water that is going through your pool plumbing. You can use it even if you have other brand of pump/filter equipment. This greatly reduces the workload on your salt chlorinator and/or amount of pool sanitation chemicals the water needed.

Q: How do you use it and whats the maintenance like?

Asked by: Terry Lawson - 8/18/2020
A: Once you install it, there is nothing left to do - it simply sanitizes the water as the circulation pump passes water through it every day. The only maintenance is cleaning quartz tube that the UV bulbs are housed in - if they eventually get dirty, the manual has simple instructions to to clean them off.

Q: can this uv filter be used for freshwater/chlorinated pools, as opposed to saltwater pools?

Asked by: mike - 2/9/2022
A: This can work on virtually any pool. As a UV system, its a good supplement for your pool's chlorination needs. A "saltwater pool" just means that you use a chlorine generator, instead of traditional chlorine. Whether or not you add a UV system, a chlorine generator is the easiest and most cost effective way to generate the chlorine you need automatically.

Q: Does this work with variable speed pumps?

Asked by: Kyle W - 10/19/2021
A: It is common to use UV systems and variable speed pumps, in fact you get better performance (increase contact time) with lower flow rates through the UV pool system.

Q: can i use this UV system and not use chlorine or salt anymore? thanks for your time.

Asked by: j - 5/18/2022
A: UV systems are essentially an "add-on" or upgrade. UV systems are a really excellent way to reduce the chlorine demand of the water and a great way to achieve even higher purity water. UV systems on their own basically prevent microorganisms from reproducing and break apart chemical byproducts that might occur when there is insufficient sanitation in the pool, however UV systems do not provide "oxidation" (a necessary part of water sanitation) and they do not provide and residual sanitation protection. Take a look at the comparison chart on this page to see more about it:

Q: The stated operating temp range is listed as 35-104 degs. I live in the desert where it is well over 104 degs most of the summer, will this unit not work. Thanks

Asked by: Scott - 6/9/2022
A: Scott, I think the manual to a corona-discharge type of ozone generator was incorrectly linked on the product page and this has been fixed. This UV system's manual doesn't state any such requirement.

Q: We have a chlorine application system in our HOA pool, 45,000 gal. Since we have really high natural UV daytime levels, can we only run the UV system in order to avoid destroying chlorine levels we apply?

Asked by: MT - 5/30/2023
A: UV from the sun is not the same as pool UV sanitation. This unit deactivates micro-organisms so they can't multiply, thereby greatly reducing the chlorine demand of the pool water.

Q: My pool is approximately 52,000 gallons. Do you have a single unit big enough?

Asked by: Mark S - 6/4/2023
A: This item is the largest available model and is marked for 50,000 gallons. You could install two in parallel if desired. You could also pair it with another pool sanitization upgrade such as an ozone generator.
