I priced it in Dr. Foster&Smith and they wanted 500.00.
It's very quiet. It's programmable and gives tank temparature. There is a flow bar that alerts you to a change in flow to the tank from the filter, when it gets to the point of needing cleaned
It allows you to set alerts to inform you when to do so services on your tank. I set chemical schedule with a phosphate cartridge in there. I wanted to keep it in for a week and then switch to the charcoal. It will alert me when to switch.
There are a few cartridges to pick from, at basically 29.00 every three months or so. If you choose to go that route.
Havn't cleaned it yet, but when I do, pull a tube out, rinse and replace. Couple of pushes for priming and it takes off.
I'll get a photo when I get this camera issue fixed.
These filters seem really cool. The only problem I can see from just looking at them is the size of the media cartridges. They seem to be to small for larger tanks, unless ordering cartridges every month is not to hampering on the wallet I guess it would be fine.
For small tanks I could see this being really nice if the cartridges can go longer between changes. Good for maintenance company folks.
Well according to the literature, the main cartridges are capable of being rinsed and reused multiple times. The bio baskets pretty much last forever (just rinse every 3-6 months)...my next questions is if you can run 2x mechanical filters instead of dealing with the chemical cartridge. If so, you'd really only need 1 set total, then you're done.
