Klir Filter Feature Debut at MACNA 2017
Say Goodbye to Filter Socks!
The Klir Filter is without a doubt one of the hottest aquarium products coming out fall of 2017. The Klir Fleece filter was not only on display but in action within the CoralVue booth at MACNA 2017.
Klir’s filtration provides four main benefits:
- Results in crystal clear water filtered down to 50 microns — double the filtering capacity compared to most filter-socks.
- Waste is removed from the water column before it has time to breakdown, helping to maintain low nutrient parameters!
- The constant chore of monitoring and swapping filter socks or other mechanical media every few days is eliminated for months at a time. Once the filtering media is exhausted, replacing it is a snap and economical.
- Best if all due to its flexible design, the Klir can be used in most existing sumps!
Q. How much flow can the Klir handle?
A. The flow capacity is related to the thickness of fleece you choose as well as how much tray you have exposed.
Q. Does the used fleece smell?
A. We have found that the used fleece does not smell. The fleece material does not hold on to water – as filter socks do – and dries quickly upon exiting the trays. In addition, the fleece is rolled tightly locking in the used layers of fleece and any smell associated with them.
Q. How long does a roll of fleece last?
A. Unique system variables such as size, feeding habits and stocking level all contribute to how long a roll of fleece lasts. As an example, we are seeing 2.5 – 3 months between replacing rolls on a well-stocked 330 gallon reef.
Q. What size tank is it rated for?
A. The Klir Filter is not rated for any specific tank size due to its expandable design and expansion accessories. Instead, the rating is based on the amount of flowrate it can handle in relation to fleece thickness and exposed tray size. We will be releasing a relational flowrate table very soon.
Q. Are there other sizes available?
A. The Klir Filter comes in one size with a expandable design that can adapt to most systems. Additional accessories such as expansion trays and brackets give further customization options.
Q. When will the Klir Filter be Available?
A. We are aiming for this fall.
Q. How much will the filter set me back and whats the cost of the fleece roll?
A. $249.99 for the filter and under $20 for the roll of fleece
