I have bought 2. The tubing cannot stay attached as the nuts are defective. Mine is one month old and is now broken! Mad!

I had an old model which worked great. I got a crack in the UV bulb housing so I bought the new model and threw away the old one. There are only 3-4 threads on the part that attaches to the hose that goes into the pond, like the other reviewer said, it won't hold the weight of the hose so it comes off. I used liquid nails finally and it held for last season but this season I accidently stepped on the hose and off it came and there is now no way to try to attach it. I didn't know I could have replaced just that glass housing. It was $169.00 down the drain. Beckett needs a design change and go back to the other way.

Don't be fooled by the positive reviews. Right out of the box the inlet fitting leaked. Since this is just a uv light in a plastic case some effort should have been put into insuring the case does not leak.
This could be sold as a combination uv clarifier and drip irrigation system.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DIYer cleans water beautifully
I purchased 2 of these at the end of the season at a great discount because both boxes were totally destroyed. I took a chance and they work great. I agree with everyone about the inlets and outlets. If you get a good quality glue, you can permanently glue the inlet and outlet. Other than that they work beautifully. Clears green water in a couple of days. I did break the glass bulb housing and replaced it, a little expensive but I think its worth it. I did cut my own replacement filters too. Really not hard. Overall a great filter!

I had bought one of these several years back and had been very pleased with the performance and durability. Unfortuantely there has been a major design change since then, specifically on the inlet and outlet ports. Instead of being molded into the unit as they were, now they are removable and are only secured by a plastic nut that is impossible to get tight enough to eliminate leaking without it coming loose entirely. I ended having to return the unit to Home Depot. Poor design change by manufacturer.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Foothills replacement media
Worked fine for a few years until the manufacturer decided not to produce the media anymore. Now they still sell it and you can't replace the media! You can get a few online but the media has tripled in price and I suspect when the small supply runs out your going to have to find something and try to cut it to the odd shape to fit it in the filter. What a disappointment. Now I have to go out and purchase a new filter when I have one that works.

I bought this filter straight from Beckett the connectors with the plastic nut will not hold the weight of the hose. They will not refund my money. Their answer is to send me another filter that is the same. Waste of money worse the 8 hrs I spent trying to make them work. DO NOT BUY

I bought one of these last year and used it this spring. It worked amazingly on the green water and has kept it completely clear for the last 5 months. The only problem is that the bulb only worked for about 5 months but the filteration is 100%. Well worth the price.
