I kept having to buy or return pumps as the single filter would not do the best job. I placed this with a 800GPH pump and the pond was clear in one day and I have not had to clean the filter every day or 2 I have done it only once now and may not have even needed to but was just being cautious.
The pump slipped out a few times as the unit kept wanting to float when I first put it in. I placed some rocks in the filter to weigh it down and that worked well.
I recommend this because it is not something that you need to maintain constantly. it will extend the life of the pond pump so that way you are not always returning it or purchasing a new one.

This is a great pond filter, easy to clean and easy to set up. It is kind of light and you may have to weight it down. The way I have mine set up I don't have to weight it down. I use two Beckett pumps on either side of mine. I use a Beckett FR400 on the 1" plug side to run my fountain and use the two way valve as a powerhead also. I use a Beckett DP800 on the 1 1/2" plug side to run my waterfall, using the T-Fitting adapter in the 1 1/2" plug.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Aquapon Does the trick
This does the trick in my 450 gallon Aquaponics system. Using this filter at the sump tank pump produces clear, clean water back to the fish tank in my CHOP system. It's been running a month and I have not had to clean it yet. Oh BTW just clean the 5 solids filters, dont clean the biofilters unless you have to.(that's where all the good bacteria are) I also dump all the debris from cleaning the filters back into the media beds, seems to be working great. and no waste of solids.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BobDeP Seems to work better than older versions
I had older filters that kept clogging and were difficult to disconnect. These are more efficient and easier to clean.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by waterboy Good value.
Using Beckett FR600 pump with this item. Works well, but the filter is buoyant and requires a weight to keep everything down. I used a 6"x6" paver and it works fine.
Made in the US and appears to be serviceable. I have several water features and have had to purchase numerous pumps (Beckett and others) in the past because they never seem to last more than 2-3 years.
