my filter started leaking
researched sunsun hw-3000
anyone using this?
any idea which lfs carries?
U should consider those with easy pre filter removal,like oase biomaster, if budget permit.... Make yr maintenance simple

Else is East ocean (or was it jebao.. they carry 1 of the China brands )
china brand
they have the hw-3xx, hw-4xx, hw-7xx but not hw-3000

no $$
not quite sold on the term "pre-filter"
call a spade a spade
a filter is to filter the gunk
if used for nitrogen cycle then call it a reactor or cycler or something

the valve leaking droplets
the filter itself cannot stand pressure anymore
anyway it has lived its life of at least 10 yrs
time to retire

you have a pond ah?

filter rated for 793g is 3000litres


my English chui so i give a few example


tank 400L a filter rated for 800l/h will be ok filtering the tank x2. filter rated for 1200l/h will be above average filtering the tank x3. filter rated for 1600l/h will be good filtering the tank x4

@blackestvoid

if you like DIY and dont mind the aesthetic try diy

its up to 3000L/h at max settings
and if you believe manufacturers claims


planning to use at lowest settings with twist and turns and bends on hoses/pipes/fittings so even at lowest setting 1200L/h it will be halved so just abt right
like the ability to rev up when needed and you can never overfilter

normally like u say rating can fake, get a canister rated for 2000l/h fill with media the flow rate will drop too

Ask u all. Where should be cheapest to get a bare tank say about 15L. Thinking to move out of the LNY container, to a proper tank but without co2/pump/filter.
Possible to get at below $30 or cheaper?
