Manufacturer Info

Algae Free Aquarium Supplies
Algae Free is a Madison, WI based company that is best known for their impressive line of aquarium cleaning magnets. Far from your run-of-the-mill refrigerator magnet, Algae Free uses Neodymium (Nd on the periodic table), a rare earth magnet, to create what are widely considered the strongest and most effective aquarium cleaning magnets on the market. The inner assemblies of their magnets are non-toxic and can be left inside of your aquarium at all times without ever rusting. The replaceable natural felt pad on the outer assembly is glass and acrylic safe and the magnets float so you’ll never have to fish it out of your substrate. Algae Free also produces a wildly popular line of magnetic powerhead holders that replace the unreliable suction cups that are generally included with aquarium powerheads. An upgrade kit for the best-selling Maxi-Jet powerhead line is the latest addition to Algae Free’s growing arsenal of high-quality aquarium supplies.

REVIEW
I stocked up on these kits for my older MJ. While I prefer the little bit wider and high flow from these mods than what now is included with the new Maxijets. The diameter of the magnet on the new style has changed to a wider. I doubt these kits will work well on new MJ model. So stock up if yo...Read More

Careful with wavemakers

REVIEW
I purchased this trying to add more flow to my tank. I have the Maxi-Jet hooked up to a wave-maker. I noticed right away that the impeller provided was much louder on the on-off cycles even though it was well seated into the Maxi-Jet. Two weeks later I came home to a sand storm in the tank. The sock...Read More

Works but be CAREFUL!!!

REVIEW
This kit is a wonderful idea and works great utilizing the time-tested reliability of the maxi-jet pumps to generate water movement. A WORD OF CAUTION: after I found my Naso Tang stuck to the shroud of the Sure Flow, I should have stopped using it immediately or switched to the smaller impeller. Sin...Read More

Review of maxi-jet upgrade kit

reviewerbadge
REVIEW
The upgrade kit went together easy and works very well except the directions could have been a little more clear on how it goes together. I am using the larger propeller for the Maxi- Jet 1200 and getting lots of water flow. I really like this product very much.

REVIEW
A great alternative to the DIY mod for the maxijet line of pumps. I was very, very impressed with the power of the Sure Flow kits. With just 2 of the Maxijets and the Sure Flow I have plenty of movement in my tank. I am using them in an alternating pattern and my fish really like them. Just did...Read More

REVIEW
This kit has some wicked flow. This blows away the other mod I previously had on the same maxi-jet. I bought 2 of these for my 90g and it gives wicked flow top to bottom. Will definately buy more in the future and recommend them to others.

REVIEW
Great product, have only tested it as it's intended to be used, and it works fantastically, my 40 gallon long is vicious with just one of these, but I actually got two for setting up a pvc manifold project to make a directional flow tank, and that parts not set up yet, but thats on my end of the dea...Read More
