  New UVCs, air pumps and pond nets launched


Having established a nationwide network of over 200 retail Centres of Excellence, leading aquatics manufacturer, Hozelock Cyprio has announced a significant investment in 16 new products to confirm its credentials as a full-range supplier of pond-keeping equipment.

The new products comprise state-of-the art UVC pond filters, a comprehensive suite of air pumps and a range of pond nets.

Hozelock's class-leading Vorton range of UVCs has been extended with the introduction of three powerful new 18W, 36W and 55W models designed to eliminate green water algae in stocked ponds from 3,000L up to 18,500L.

Each unit comes with a 5m cable and benefits from a long-life single ended PLL lamp in a quartz sleeve, an integrated turbulator for efficient water circulation, a viewing glass to show if the lamp is working and a convenient micro-switch which deactivates the unit when the end cap is released to access the lamp.

The new models complement the existing Vorton 9W, 11W and 22W units to present the consumer with a comprehensive choice of UVC solutions for ponds from 3,000L upwards with prices ranging from £54.99 up to £159.99.

The new Hozelock Cyprio Air Pump range is aimed at fish enthusiasts who need a reliable pump to raise the level of dissolved oxygen in their densely stocked ponds.

The five models - Air Pump 320, 640, 1500, 2700 and 4500 - cater for a wide variety of pond sizes, depths and fish densities, with motors ranging from 4W to 35W and air output ranging from 320 to 4500 litres per hour.  They have an IPX4 splashproof rating making them ideal for use around the pond or indoors with aquariums.

Competitively priced from £34.99 to £139.99, the new Air Pumps come with a selection of accessories including air stones, non-return valves and tubing.

Rounding off Hozelock Cyprio's new product line-up is a comprehensive range of Pond Nets comprising small (£7.99), medium (£17.99) and large (£19.99) Fish Nets and a Skimmer Net (£18.99).

Also introduced are four Pond Cover Nets ranging in size from 3 x 2m (£7.99) to 6 x 10m (£39.99).

All the hand-held nets have a lightweight aluminium shaft with a hexagonal profile which makes it 50% stronger than a conventional round profile. Apart from the fixed 125cm long shaft of the Small Fish Net, all the handles are telescopic, affording a variable 100-180cm length (100-150cm for the Medium Fish Net) with a secure locking mechanism and a soft grip handle.

The net support hoops are made from extruded aluminium with an integral bumper to absorb the tension of a heavy fish load. The long-life polyester nets - fine mesh on the Skimmer and Small Fish Nets, wide mesh on the Medium and Large Fish Nets - are rot and rip resistant.

Available from February 2012, the new aquatics products will be supported by in-store merchandising which has resulted in a significant sales uplift through Hozelock Cyprio Centres of Excellence over the past two years.
