This filter does a great job. the only problem is that it is overpriced and does not filter much water before it is spent.

I have several salt water tanks. I use this for mixing salt water. Works great. Never a problem with water quality or unwanted algae blooms.

Purchased the original filter canister through our local aquarium store when they made a custom aquarium for us, but they no longer carry these replacement cartridges (and they could not match this pricing either).This system runs the tap water through activated charcoal, a filter medium, and then through resin in order to purify the water for aquarium use. It really does a great job removing the chemical from the water, and these filters get a lot of the credit for our fish having long, healthy lives.These filters actually do too good of a job, and we add good minerals back in to the water before putting it in the tank -- we like to use a product called Equilibrium for that task (Seachem Equilibrium 600gram)Glad that these replacement filter cartridges are still available here and our fish seem very happy about it too! If looking for a system, or a replacement cartridge for the system if you already have it, we recommend these highly.

This product is easy to use, compact it fits under the sink. Its a plus for when you need fresh water on the double.

I have used this filter for about a year and a half. My TDS (total dissolved solids) were 78 going in and it produces 0 TDS coming out of the filter which is great for marine aquariums. It is easy to use, the filters are easy to replace, however they are expensive.

I have used this tap water purification system for years, and the replacement cartridges are very easy to install. They are a bit expensive, but they do last a long time (as advertised), so I don't have to replace them very often. My only problem is that I accidentally tossed out the hold-down spring before my last replacement. Replacement cartridges, unfortunately, don't come with a new spring, and I can't seem to find a replacement for it. I don't think the cartridge lasts as long without it.
