In today’s video, i show you how to build an aquarium water sterilizer that will only cost you $8.

I don't think this sterilizes water… unless it's creating low levels of bleach in the water from dissolved salt.
how to electrocute your fish 101
I hear you say it's maybe not the most efficient method for sterilization but it seems like it would be excellent for oxygenation?
the stainless funnel pieces, what are they called? No luck at Lowes or Amazon…
Can I use 6 volt adaptor instead of 6 volt battery?
I mean can I use current from electrical sockets or only or only from dc batteries 🙏🏼🙏🏼pls tell
Can we use ac or only dc current source🙄
can you use this with fish present in the aquarium?
I tried this. But my water becomes Brown and VERY dirty. What have i missed?
hexavalent chromium when iron is dissolved?
I doubt that your suggestion of using u/v sterilisation would be useful in a hydroponic system because u/v would drop the iron trace element out of the nutrient.
Why if with salt whater
That is good for the fish?
I think I have seen this kind of equipment somewhere else. But it was used to increase O2 level in the water. In hydroponics it is important that the solutions has some O2. Could you check this with a DO meter? In a recirculating system could it be used to disinfect the system prior activation?
Nice videos, I like them, keep the good work.
Is the metals going to cause issues in tank
Why did my water turn green after using this for 15minutes?
i think they call it "stinger" in prison
i built one back last year, at the time I was running my aqurium lights fir 15 hours a day and algae was terrible, I put a day eltronasis sterilize inside my die canister filter i did run the steralizer 24/7 but it did kill off the algae issue so i guess placement and time ran is key
Hey bro thanks for video.
I made a similar project but i am not able to understand that it is producing a whitish powder material at electrode what it can be.
What is that you have any idea.
I have used steel mesh.
Very helpful, thanks
But my question is can it be used as an oxygenator?
So basically i can just put my sapper bat in my aquarium 🤣
Could u send me your DIY sterilizer?!?! I need some for my green water issue!! Lol
Cool bonding pen
Is UV better than steriliser to fight algae ? Since UV mostly use in fight green water algae..
Copper in the Water!? 🙄
Can it use it when there's no power supply?
Will it not electrocute the fish….?
very bad for fish
I am your fan sir. Superb idea. But i have 1 question.
How much time it will on for every 24 hrs?
Very bad for fish. During the electrolysis a lot of OH- is produced. Very toxic.
This will massively affect the pH of the tank as OH ions will be produced causing the pH to go alkaline and could kill the fish
Can use this for my biofloc Water tank? will it kill my helpful bacterias?
How much time use in planted aquarium this twinstar
Fantastic! Too bad I saw this video too late 🙁
They sell O2 grow for 200$ this is like cheap as!!!! Thanks dude
The only question, does this really works?
As a saltwater guy, the metals, specifically lead (solder) and copper (Wires) scare me. Not that I would ever use this in saltwater due to the chlorine production, but do those metals not affect freshwater?
Can i use this a 12×12 feet fish tank and how many minute .
Will this work on tap water?
Because for electrolysis of water u need distilled water normal tap water produces other substances and causes discoloration in water.
Hmm, I have tried multiple setups, all of them created a brown rusty like substance. I guess the metal mesh oxidated… I ve tried most of the metal meshes and I wonder what is the exact substance of the mesh ? Is it a metal ? The second question is how much exact voltage do you use ? I have tried 5 volt upto 12 volt with no white fog as a result …
