It is a surface skimmer, it will float right at the surface and help to remove surface film. It slides easily so it can adjust to the level of the water.

thank you. So if I don't need it will I need to plug the hole? Seems like its a double intake. I will mesh the bottom intake to prevent shrimplets from getting sucked in so thats why I ask.

I think that is supposed to be right below the water surface and it sucks in the film that builds up.

I plugged mine. I suppose you could try it without doing that.

Is anyone having or heard of these filters shutting down? It would be running fine and just stop pumping with power still on. I've taken it apart multiple times to see is something was getting stuck in the impellers but no luck. The magnet was hot but that should be be normal right?

Any tips on priming a HW302? I really struggled to get the prime back after cleaning out the media.

the spray bar needs to be above the water surface while you prime. It can definitely take some effort if you have other things inline like a heater or UV or something.

The easiest way to prime it is to fill it up with water right after you're done cleaning it and then turn it on. Takes no time to prime. So worth it.

I don't know what # I am. Been using this filter w/ 4 media baskets for a month now. Love it! I haven't opened it to clean yet, but don't plan on it for some time as I'm using old media to seed it.
Glad too see the above photo. I had no idea what that part was for either. I just kept the plug on that it came w/.

Okay, I am not using this filter, yet, but I have been keeping my eyes on this product long time . I just got the chance to chat with one of their managers from the company who makes Sunsun. I did report some issues that people were most consern about, and here are the results:

FOR INSTRUCTION/MANU:
Seem like they kind of knew it, but may thought this is not a big issue, and I dont feel like they are going to find someone to tanslate the instruction better. So perhaps we can make our own English instruction and I can sent it to the manager.

FOR THE PARTS:
They do sell parts in the states. The distributors do have the parts that we can purchase separately for replacement.

THE NAME:
They put no comments. Even though they seem like dont have an real English name, but their Chinese name is SenSen, or as we always call: SunSun.

Interesting. That appears to be the 303B version. The old mid-size model with UV. Evilbay's got it for maybe 20 bucks less, under a couple different labels, including that particular one (CF-400).

This marks the first time I've seen it as an offering in an actual store (in the US, anyway). Gogo SunSun!!!

Very cool. Now you get Walmart's ridiculous return policy.
