If you are an aquarist, whether a beginner or an expert, you must know about how filtration is very important when it comes to aquarium care
. It`s usually at the top of most to-do and must-have lists concerning fish tanks.
When you already have a filtration system set in place, the challenge then moves on to draining the water from the aquarium to the filter. Most systems have a built-in overflow pump that can perform the draining, but in case your system does not have that, you can always use the CPR CS150 Overflow Box from Pet Store
to do that for you. You can buy it separately and easily integrate it with your current filtration system. In this way, you don`t have to do any modifications to your tanks, which can get very expensive, and can also disrupt your fish.
The CPR CS150 Overflow Box is more powerful than other overflows. Because it doesn`t use tubes - it uses a box instead - it can take in water six times faster than other overflows using standard tubes. It also works quietly in the background so you (and your fish, too) will never have to be distracted by annoying noises.
It comes with a black top to prevent the unwanted growth of algae.
A built in overflow is the most efficient method of draining aquarium water to a filter. If your aquarium does not have built-in overflow, CPR Continuous Siphon Overflows/Prefilters are the best means for getting water from an aquarium to a filter system without expensive modifications to the tank. They quietly skim up to six times more water than units with tubes.
The advantages of CPR Continuous Siphon Overflows/Prefilters include:
- Adjustable water level allows you to easily change the level in your tank.
- Black top reduces algae growth.
- Quiet operation.
Tip: We recomond the use of an Aqua Lifter pump with the CPR overflows for trouble free operation. Another alternative is to hook the bleed hose from the overflow to the air intake of a power head. This way the overflow will continue to wok if it drawes some air into it or in the event of a power failure it will restart.
