Mechanical filters are often the first step in a filtration process set up in an aquarium. Mechanical filters remove big particles of unwanted materials from tap water. Before other steps can take place (such as biological and chemical filtration), the water must be clear of solid dirt. For that to happen, you need the Lifegard Aquatics RTL25 Commercial Cartridge Filter from Pet Store
to do the job.
The Lifegard Aquatics RTL25 Commercial Cartridge Filter is a mechanical filter that can be used for high flow rates, as high as 100 GPM. It is equipped with a two-inch suction, partnered with a two-inch discharge. At a height of 18 inches, this filter is small enough to be hidden discreetly. It's quite slim too, with its diameter of 8.25 inches. Because of its size, it leaves a small carbon footprint, so it's also environment-friendly. But in spite of its size, it has an impressive 25-square-foot filter area.
The Lifegard Aquatics RTL25 Commercial Cartridge Filter is versatile. It can be used as a chemical filter, too. Simply take off the cartridge from the chamber and replace it with a carbon-filled filter bag. Voila! You instantly have a chemical filter. You've got two filtration systems
with just one device.
High flow mechanical filter with 2" suction and 2" discharge.
To convert to a chemical filter remove the cartridge and place carbon in a filter bag inside the chamber
