sunsun jp8 "sterilizer" mod

I purchased a sunsun jp8 uv sterilizer a while back for my 75 gal freshwater. I was having a bad cloudiness problem and the jp8 did a great job within about 4 days the water was,clear. So I decided to clean it for a,fresh start. Then inside the lamp housing I discovered that black residue problem that I found is pretty common. Well I'm a machinist by trade, so at work I took a length of 304 stainless tubing and turned and bored it to fit. As well made a press fit cap with several holes drilled for the intake. I ran it continually for 2 weeks non stop. Not one sign of black residue. I can post pics tonight if anyone is curious
