Lifegard Aquatics 9 inch Chemical Retainer Chamber Information



Part #: R175029

Many aquariums have a two- or three-step filtration system in place to ensure the cleanliness of the tank water at all times. Mechanical filtration removes unwanted particles that contaminate the water. Biological filtration kills harmful microorganisms that can cause infectious diseases. Chemical filtration breaks down toxic chemicals that can poison aquatic creatures.

Some aquarists choose to keep a mechanical filtration system in place while alternating between a chemical and biological filtration system. If you want a chemical system in place, Lifegard Aquatics produces chemical filters that you can conveniently use for your aquarium.

Chemical filters work by having a chamber filled with a reactant. This reactant is a chemical that reacts with the unwanted chemicals in the water, causing the latter to break down to simple and harmless forms. For the Lifegard Aquatics chemical filters, this chamber is called the retainer chamber. When it breaks down from regular use, you dont have to replace the whole system. You can get a replacement for the chamber in the form of the Lifegard Aquatics 9-inch Chemical Retainer Chamber Pet Store.

The Lifegard Aquatics 9-inch Chemical Retainer Chamber is specifically for use with the single inline chemical filtration systems from Lifegard Aquatics. The cap for the retainer is sold separately.

Comments: The chambers were shipped without the plastic plugs for the top of the units. The plugs I believe are required to prevent the filter medium from being dislogged by the flow of water. The webpage of the manufacturer shows an expanded schematic of the unit which includes the plugs (stock# R172014X). I can't imagine the plugs being sold separatley since I am sure they are crucial to the proper operation of the chamber. Somehow I didn't think it was the responsibility of the consumer to carve a cork to the right size in order to be able use the product.
