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.

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
