Aquamaxx 50 Micron Filter Pad 36 Inch x 36 Inch Information




Mechanical filtration is the simplest compared to other filtration systems such as biological and chemical. Mechanical filtration involves nothing more than filtering out particles of waste by means of a barrier. However, in spite of the simplicity, mechanical filtration is really important. Most of the dirt should be filtered out at this stage before the water goes through the next stages.

To make sure that the mechanical stage of your filtration system works effectively, you have to get a filter media that can trap even the smallest particles. You'll do really well with the Aquamaxx 50 Micron Filter Pad from Pet Store. As it says in the name, it can trap particles as tiny as 50 microns. Indeed, even particles invisible to the naked eye can be trapped by this filter media.

This filter media can be used for both freshwater and saltwater tanks, and can be used to fit any kind of overflow.

The Aquamaxx 50 Micron Filter Pad is reusable. Simply wash it after it gets dirty. The good thing about this is that it is completely machine-washable, so cleaning up is never a hassle and always convenient. Thus, you can have clear water in your tank over and over again!

Think you have clear water? Think again.

Crafted with durable, reusable and machine-washable synthetic fibers, AquaMaxx filter pads effectively trap debris and small particles to bring your water to a new level of clarity.

This phenomenal filter media can be cut to fit any overflow, sump or refugium and will make your fresh or saltwater aquarium water as crystal clear as Mother Nature intended.

Comments: I run this periodically to get the really small particles, however it seems to have some chemical in it that causes my protein skimmer to foam and overflow for about 30 minutes. I now have to remember to turn off my skimmer when I change the pad.

Comments: It makes the water clearer than It has been before. You can see the difference in only a couple of hours. I have only used this filter material a week and it really makes the water clear. Down side it needs changing often, but you can just rinse off the debris and toss into the washing machine and re-use. Or just cut off another piece like I do. I haven't tried washing it yet. I am using this in a HOB filter and is is really cheaper to use this than the expensive manufacturer's ones that don't do nearly as good of a job.

Comments: I have a 200 gal. Tank with african cichlids and is heavily stocked, the tank runs on a Eshopp 300cs wet dry filter, I have used the 100m aquamaxx filter pads since day one of the tank set up. It still amazes me how much it catches, I run a bonded blue filter media under the pad to catch any thing that may get though witch is very little. I wash the pads about once a week and I still have the same pads I started with over a year ago, very tough and durable. I want my water crystal clear and the aquamaxx does just that with ease. I highly recommend this product to any aquarium enthusiast.

Comments: i placed this inside my hang on back filter. just as an extra filtration....OH MY! i thought my water was clean.....no...no it wasn't. this is helping so much clean my water. it's fantastic! it's re-usable. and i just cut a piece the size of my filter and i have SO much left over! it's amazing when i look at it in the filter and see all that it has caught. i have a lot of fish that give off a high bio load so water clarity can be hard. but this is fantastic. would def. recommend.

Comments: You can still use the 50 micron with a high flow system. I had originally bought the 50 Micron pad but as my Proflex Model 4 is high flow the water would just over flow. I ended up ordering the 100 Micron instead and it still overflowed a little. After thinking about it, I ended up putting some AquaticLife Media Bonded Blue Pad down first and then laid this on top of it. This allowed the water to flow through the 50 Micron pad anywhere (not just at the drip holes). My water is much clearer now. Fantastic product.

Great Filter Media

Comments: The drip filter in my R3100kg works best with a new media every month or so. In looking for the most value in layout for the 6" x 12" strips needed, the 18" x 36" sheet by AquaMaxx fit best. After 2 weeks of use, I can see the media doing a better job of removing the large matter from the water (using 50 micron). The media rinses clean at every water change. Also the water clarity is as good as with the previous pads, but when I need it, the 100 micron option is nice to have.
