Hagen Aqua Clear power filters offer outstanding three stage filtration for fresh or saltwater aquariums from five gallons to 110 gallons. It is quiet, inexpensive to run, and provides complete mechanical, chemical, and biological filtration through its unique design. It comes with a foam block, activated charcoal, and biomass media, that fit into the basket. To clean or change the media simply remove the basket, rinse or replace. It comes with a lifetime guarantee. The first thing you want to do is use this adjusting to level it and you push that in there and you put this on the tank where you want it and then you can adjust this to be closer or further so that it’s level otherwise if it’s off level a little bit. It could leak so that’s just about right there. The next thing we want to do we have all of our media, foam, activated, charcoal, and the bio mass media and there are directions in there, but you want to put the foam in first, fits in like that, this little bag you want to rinse this charcoal out first, put that in here, and then the biomass goes on top just like that, and then this fits right into there. Sometimes you have to manipulate just a little bit make sure it’s all the way down and solid. The next thing we want to do is put the siphon tube here, and it comes in two pieces, and you have to put this on first, and it snaps right into place, and then you attach the bottom right there, and make sure that this is all the way down in there, and then it’s leveled now. So we put this on the aquarium, it’s level, and now we just have to add water before you start it. Okay you can adjust the flow right here, by turning this little left or right. If it’s straight, you’ll get the maximum flow if you adjust it to the left it will slow it down just a little bit, that depends. The top fits on okay and then we’ll plug it in and it takes a second for the siphon to work. You see the bubbles coming out your impeller is down in here and your motor it’s getting that out and then pretty soon you’ll have a direct flow into the aquarium. Not very loud, doesn’t take much power to run. It’s very efficient to clean this you just take the top off, pull the basket out you, you never want to really scrub the bioballs, the biomax, you want to just rinse them lightly. The sponge can be used multiple times by squeezing it out and used aquarium water. You don’t want to use chlorinated water because you don’t want to kill the bacteria that may be in there and then you can replace the activated charcoal. It’s getting ready, it’s almost up to the top just starting to spill over now and the air will go out automatically. You can see the bubbles rising and will have flow here in just a second. There it starts and again this is where you adjust if you want to slow it down a little bit, so it’s not so strong or push it this way you get full flow there you can see it coming through right there. Provides aeration and water movement as well. For additional information on the products used in this video, please visit PetSolutions.com.
