Nu-Clear 522 Canister Filter - 18 sq. ft. 100 Micron Mechanical Filter Information



Part #: 522

It could be difficult to clean a large tank or a whole pond by yourself if you don't have the right tools. Sometimes, your filter cartridges could break just because of the water pressure when the water is being pumped by your powerheads or wave makers. The solution to this problem is to buy a new one, which can withstand any amount of force and pressure that come with the water blasts. In times like these, your best bet comes in the form of the Nu-Clear 522 Canister Filter from Pet Store.

The Nu-Clear 522 Canister Filter can be fitted in any brand of cleaning system that you own. It features a special, 18 square-feet 100 micron filter, which is one of the reasons why this canister filter is so efficient. Rather than sifting through the pond or aquarium water with a porous, cloth material, this device makes use of activated carbon, which is well-known for its filtration properties.

The Nu-Clear 522 Canister Filter is very easy to install, and it won't take too much of your time. Whenever the need arises, you should always choose the Nu-Clear 522 Canister Filter if you need to replace your current filter cartridges. It will be the best decision you'll make when it comes to cleaning your aquarium or pond.

Nu-Clear 500 Series Modular Canister Filters provide the ultimate in aquatic life support systems for consumer and commercial fresh and salt water aquariums, fountains, or ponds. With several mechanical, chemical and biological options to choose from, Nu-Clear filters have the flexibility to fit all your aquarium and pond applications. The different models may be used on their own or in combination with other models to provide the ultimate in filtration systems. The Nu-Clear 500 Series Modular Canister Filters are appropriate for aquariums 50 gallons and up for ponds 300 gallons and up.

Nu-Clear filters feature heavy duty molded PVC construction with a stainless steel lid clamp for secure leak free operation and carry a 2 year guarantee. The filter bodies are approximately 13" wide and 12.5" tall (overall width with fittings is 15). An additional clearance of 8 above the filter is required to remove the cartridge for cleaning. Nu-Clear filters have 1" FNPT inlet and outlet ports allowing for higher flow rates (up to 1,200 gallons/hr) than similar filters with 3/4 ports. All models come with adapters for 3/4" and 1" hose, stainless steel hose clamps, pipe seal tape, and a drain valve.

MODEL 522
18 sq. ft. 100 Micron Mechanical & Carbon Filter
Perfect for ponds and freshwater tanks. This 18 sq. ft. 100 micron poly-screen cartridge does not trap debris in the fibers of the material like other cartridges, so it may be simply rinsed clean and does not require bleaching. This filter will hold 1.5 lbs of activated carbon for absorbing water yellowing compounds and other dissolved organics. Includes pressure gauge and 1.5 lbs of pre-bagged premium Inland Seas Marine and Reef Activated Carbon.

Great New Filter Product Review by STEPHEN VITALEC (Posted on 2/26/14)
Rating
Excellent!

Comments: I have had the filter up and running for a week now. There are no leaks, as I read on 1 of the reviews. All my fish seems to love the water motion and it was fairly easy to put together. The only items I wish it included was extra clamps for the pump. You must have a pump for this unit. The canister over-all is excellent and I will plan to add another one to it within the next 6 months.

Well Engineered Unit. Product Review by JOHN WORSLEY (Posted on 3/30/13)

Excellent!

Comments: After years of experience dealing with both American and European equipment, I have to admit that from an engineering point of view, this filter is one of the best designs I have come across. It easily rivals any of the German units I used in Europe and that is saying something! The 'add on' extensions you can get for these filters is also a good idea and which makes them rather unique. I have the filter coupled to an Iwaki MD-100R(T) which is pushing through it 35 GPM and at high pressure. I'm not sure I would get away with this if it were not for the nice big 1 inch threaded ports the filter is fitted with. Also, no leaks despite the pressure. A well thought out unit.

Crystal Clear Water! Product Review by Nate A. (Posted on 6/24/12)

Excellent!

Comments: Bought this as a polisher to use on my return pump to my 180G reef tank. I was having a pretty hard time with micro bubbles and this guy completely solved it. After 24 hours there is a night and day difference in my water clarity.

For reference, my return pump is a Mag 12. The only reason I don't give this 5 stars is the directions that came with the pump are poorly written and have grammar mistakes.

life saver - crystal clear H2O Product Review by GERALD J SKIDMORE (Posted on 6/16/12)

Excellent!

Comments: I didn't wash my GFO before putting it in the reactor and attatching to the tank - my tank looked like a car rusted to death in it, it was a horrible experience. After a day and a half it was barely any better. I figured I should try something I assumed was not needed on a reef tank with a sump - a canister filter. Within 2 (yeah, two) hours, my tank was crystal clear - the water clearer than pre-GFO!! I thought I was gonna have to tear down my tank and start over but this saved my life - the rocks still have a copper hue, but the water is the best it's ever been!!!
