I've been using this filter for 4 months now and thought I write a review.

After about a month I noticed the filter was making a louder noise than normal. It was caused by dirty impeller. So clean the impeller!

Good: low noise


Bad: This model has a built in heater.
built in heater = two more chords
two more chords = maintanence headache because I have to unplug all chords to clean the filter.

I have a 2128 and I would not buy it again. For $300, this thing should work perfectly. My flow indicator ball was making a ton of noise, so that had to go.

Now, one of the shut off valves leaks like crazy. You can imagine what a pain in the ass that is. The integrated heater works as advertised, but you still have to stick a probe in the tank and deal with an extra cord.

Come to think about it, I'm about done with canister filters, period.
