- What's Included
Keep your aquarium or pond clean and healthy with the Reaction 4-Stage high capacity filtration system. This revolutionary canister filter offers a high media storing capacity with simple to remove basket trays, self priming lever, quick disconnect shut off valve for easy maintenance, and an innovatively integrated UV sterilizer with On/Off switch that polishes water to crystal clarity while keeping pathogens at bay. The EFU-45 model has a flow rate of 290 gallons per hour and is rated up to a 175 gallon tank.
The canister filter utilizes mechanical, chemical, biological filtration, and UV sterilization for a balanced aquarium. Water first enters the canister via the intake strainer and is guided through a large sponge to trap particulate matter. The water then reaches 500g of activated carbon to remove harmful dissolved organic compounds. Water is directed over the ceramic rings that offers a tremendous amount of surface area internally and externally to grow beneficial aerobic bacteria that break down harmful ammonia and nitrite to less harmful nitrate. All the filtered water then passes through our powerful UV-C lamp for pathogen and green water elimination.
Integrated Self-Priming Lever
Our innovative self-priming lever eliminates the need for manual siphoning. Simply, pump the lever up and down vigorously until the water enters the inlet and the remaining air bubbles leave the outlet.
Quick-Disconnect Shut-Off Valve
Definitely the most useful feature to keep floors dry when carrying out routine monthly maintenance. The quick-disconnect shut-off Valve is an integrated tool that instantly creates a watertight seal that stops water from entering or exiting the filter. Simply lift up the shut-off valve handle to the vertical position to stop water flow. Grab the handle and detach and take the canister filter for convenient media replacement.
On/Off Switch for UV-C Germicidal Lamp
This revolutionary concept integrates a special UV-C lamp to destroy green water and polish water to crystal clarity. The accessible ON/OFF switch allows for complete user control.
High Capacity Media Storage
The new trend in canister filters is to increase the filter storing capacity for larger amounts of chemical and biological medias. This allows for higher water quality due to more media contact through the initial pass. All filter baskets have convenient handles for removing and loading up all types of media that can be easily customized.
