“A work in progress”

“API XP Canister Filter”
4.0

Excellent product would buy again. I would get the best hose clamps that would be available locally. The plastic ones that come with the filter are not secure. There is no noise from the filter at all! The only reason for the 4 is that the hose clamps are iffy at best. I will buy this again for...Read More

Anyone for water all over the floor? I didn't...Read More

“Pretty Decent filter for $$$$”
5.0

I replaced an Ehiem Proffessional 2 with this filter. The Ehiem ran flawlessly for 7 years but then started leaking between the base and the top. My plan was to buy the Ehiem Pro 3 2075 but after reading 30 or so poor reviews, I reconsidered. Apparently they also leak, brand new, right out of the b...Read More
