aqua-pro reveiw

easily understood instructions and materials seem to be of good quality

the filter came will all the bits you would expect, the pipe was good quality and was a tight fit to the filter and the spray bar + the inlet pipe

fitting it all together was simple with push in pipes on the filter with screw cap holders

the pipes have a quick release fuction on the tap when you need to detach the filter although this ia a bit stiff works fine but would have been better if you had a quick relase bar like the fluvals and eheim pro's

media was inclused with course foam, fine filter pad, carbon foam, and some plastic noodles with fins on them. (also as this filter has the same baskits as the eheim their filter foams can be used or what ever you want)

after attaching all pipes and tubes into the tank and onto the canister (which was a simple push in job) was the time to prime the filter (their is 2 options on the filter models a auto prime and a manual prime) i have the manual prime which consits of filling the inlet pipe full of water with the included spout with the tap off untill it was full and then refitting the cap just a matter of opening the tap and taking out the prime plug which then caused a syphon to fill the canister, once nearly full you close the tap and close the prime and open both taps should get a bit of bubbleing through the outlet and it should start to draw up water.

then its just a matter of turning it on, the flow from the filter is quite good and a little stronger than the 405 but not by much also as the tubes and pipe is green it shows less in the back ground unlike the grey fluvals

what has supprised me was the noise level it is alot quiter than my fluval 405 was which i thought was great

i will up date this if i get any problems or if i need to clean out the filter premiturly

but on the face of it the aqua-pro 3 filter is a great filter if you dont want the outlay of the fluval's or the eheim's
