This revolutionary canister filter offers a high media storing capacity with simple to remove basket trays, self priming lever, quick disconnect shut off valve for easy maintenance, and an innovatively integrated UV sterilizer with On/Off switch that polishes water to crystal clarity while keeping pathogens at bay. The EFU-25 model has a flow rate of 198 gallons per hour and is rated up to a 100 gallon tank.
The canister filter utilizes mechanical, chemical, biological filtration, and UV sterilization for a balanced aquarium. Water first enters the canister via the intake strainer and is guided through a large sponge to trap particulate matter. The water then reaches 500g of activated carbon to remove harmful dissolved organic compounds. Water is directed over the ceramic rings that offers a tremendous amount of surface area internally and externally to grow beneficial aerobic bacteria that break down harmful ammonia and nitrite to less harmful nitrate. All the filtered water then passes through our powerful UV-C lamp for pathogen and green water elimination.
