If you plumbed it before the N.C. Ball Valve and drain i would think it would work better.
Probably, and if the UV isn't working how it should, I'll move it.

I've also have read that you only need 1 to 1.5 turn over on a UV to get rid of algae and what not.
The UV won't be running 24/7. I'll probably only have it on for 2 hours a day.
