AquaMaxx AF-1 Automatic Filter Roller

Peace out, filter socks.  Enjoy more and do less, the AF-1 Automatic Filter will let you enjoy your aquarium with less maintenance by removing the need to change out your filter socks or sponges every few days.

Leaving clogged filter socks in your system for too long increases the chance for food and waste to decay within the filter sock, if the sock is not removed every few days. The AF-1 eliminates this chance, automatically removing this waste from your water column before it has time to break down.

The AF-1 is fed water through its 1.5" inlet directly entering its internal chamber, then filtered through the exposed fleece. As water passes the filter fleece begins to clog with detritus, uneaten food, organic waste, etc., the water will rise within the AF-1`s chamber, triggering the water level switch for the motor to wind on the filter roll to a new fresh piece. The water level will then drop and the process will repeat itself until the roll is near its end.

REVIEW
LOVE this roller! I did a lot of research before buying, and and convinced that I made the right decision to go with the AquaMaxx. As others have noted, the rolls are large - I just did my first change after 3 months! This is on a 48+25 gallon system. I feed heavily, and and am pushing around 150...Read More

Hanging bracket too narrow Filter paper take up roll attach point doesn’t hold.
REVIEW
I received it about a week ago. I had to modify the hanging bracket, it wasn’t wide enough for my rimmed sump. Also had to make an adapter from my 1” line to the 1 1/2” inlet tube. The motor rotated fine but no matter how I tried to attach the filter to the take up roller, it just wouldn’t h...Read More

Works great.

A few tweaks may be needed. Changing the filter roller takes a little time.
REVIEW
Would have given it 5 starts but had to make a couple modifications for it to work perfectly.
First modification was one of the tie rods broke that holds the plexiglass pieces together broke in shipping. A simple tie wrap fixed that. I would imagine if I called customer service they would ha...Read More
