Thumbs up Just had a CF500-UV delivered! Review

A short review. Easy to set up. There is a paper top that explains that each one is tested before it leaves the factory. Mine was wet but clean. All bags sealed. Setup was easy. Love the 5 tier filtration. Nice change from the circular style.

ONE PROBLEM...cut the hoses as SHORT as possible or you will NEVER get it to prime. No drip loops like old school. Once I did that- boom it primed itself.

I will also add that if you see the diagram it is not the correct (easy) way to install it as it will leave the hoses too long. Put the return in the center of the tank not the far left. Since there is a spray bar it makes no different in flow just makes the hose shorter and easier to prime.

This canister is so quiet you can not hear it. I have been told I have dog ears (by my Dad) so I can hear very well. So happy with this purchase so far and intent to buy another.
