clear water is not necessarily clean or pure water.
UV sterilizers are highly effective on green water but are

for water plants and
silt collecting materials on which the beneficial
get a stable foothold. UV is ineffective on stringy algae because
the plant never actually passes through the sterilizer. But
stringy algae is good because of its ability to
collect beneficial bacteria.
