Aquarium Pharmaceuticals® API Replacement Filter Cartridge for Tap Water Filter Information



Part #: 175A

Besides its fish, an aquarium's most important component is its water. Although colorless and odorless, aquarium water heavily impacts the overall health of your fish and your whole system. Dirty water not only makes the aquarium a murky and hassle-filled experience for your fish it also might foster the growth of harmful bacteria, fungi, and other harmful microorganisms.

Even if the water is clear, it might still pose serious health effects on your fish's if the water you're using comes from your faucet. Regular municipal water has chlorine and other chemical additives. While this water kills off bad bacteria, they also knock out good bacteria which your aquarium might need for a natural nitrogen cycle (your fish eat food, they excrete nitrites, good bacteria turn toxic nitrites into nitrates, your plants then eat up the nitrates). This might result in an ecological imbalance for your system. Another problem with using tap water is the high amount of dissolved calcium and minerals in this type of water.

Untreated, this "hard" water creates crusts in your tubing, pumps, and other parts where the water condenses and leaves only a mineral residue. Hardwater residue builds up quickly and is a hassle to remove. To prevent this problem use a Replacement Filter Cartridge for Aquarium Pharmaceuticals Tap Water Filter from Pet Store. This filter connects to your faucet and deionizes tap water. Use this water to prevent calcium and mineral build up in your aquarium.

Ready-to-use replacement cartridge for the Tap Water Filter. Easily connects to Tap Water Filter to continue making perfect deionized aquarium water.

Excellent!

Comments: The unit produces water slowly. I have produce a total of 50 gallons so far, and the unit is only 30% depleted. My water source is from Hetch Hetchy Dam. I have been using AP Tap Water Filter for about 2 years, and it's a great unit.

Comments: This filter system really takes all the junk out of my water my tank has been very stable with very minimal fish loss since we started using this method of filtering our awful tap water.

The only downside is maybe the cost of replacement filters but if you love your fish its well worth the cost.
