VORTEX DIATOM CANISTER FILTERS

For super cleaning your aquarium and water polishing, the "Diatom" is a high-speed filter designed to filter aquarium water to an extremely pure state, without disturbing the natural bacteria levels.

It uses a unique diatom powder to filter particles as small as one diatom in size. Even some parasites and bacteria are large enough to be trapped and pulled out of the water by a diatom filter.

Used properly, your Diatom filter will eliminate the need to "tear down" your aquarium to clean.

Model D-1 is for most routine cleaning jobs. Filters over 250 GPH. Clears a 10 gallon tank micron free in 12 minutes.

The Diatom XL, which filters at up to 300 GPH (and measures 18" high by 7.5" wide at the base), is the highest speed aquarium filter on the market (designed for continuous operation).

    FEATURES:
  • Electrical on-off switch and self priming motor
  • 100% filtration of water that passes through the pump - no hidden "by-pass holes"
  • Quiet operation. Motor shaft is connected directly to the impeller (no slipping magnetic drive or squealing belts)
  • Thermally protected motor. Self-contained and designed for continuous operation
  • Adjustable and directional flow
  • Backwashes clean without taking the filter apart. Protected against gravel jam of the impeller
  • Easily recharged with filter media - Diatom filter powder, superchar or water softener may be added while the filter is running.
  • Positively does not change pH
  • New unbreakable chamber base stand and jar!

VORTEX DIATOM FREEDOM FILTER

The only filter you'll ever need! Designed for continuous use, the "Diatom" Freedom eliminates the need for other filters. It is a high-speed filter designed to filter aquarium water to an extremely pure state, without disturbing the natural bacteria levels

It uses a unique diatom powder to filter particles as small as one diatom in size. Even some parasites and bacteria are large enough to be trapped and pulled out of the water by a diatom filter.

Used properly, your Diatom Freedom filter will eliminate the need to "tear down" your aquarium to clean. It will filter 100% of the water 100% of the time - no hidden "by-pass holes".

    Diatom Freedom Filter Features:
  • Hangs on aquarium or sits on the floor
    • New O-ring sealed, flexible, kink resistant tubes
    • Easily moved from tank to tank with the new clear p-29 recharge valve (included)

    • Electrical on/off switch
    • Unbreakable chamber base

Two small windows on the face of the valve handle (which are engraved to show "filter" or "charge mode") make it easy to tell if you are filtering your tank or simply re-coating the bag and filtering the water in the filter.
  • No-kink tubing allows you the "freedom" to move your filter freely from tank to tank without losing your siphon and without having to re-coat your filter layer. Using the P-29 Recharge Valve also allows you to adjust the water flow from full to slight filtration if so desired.Easier siphon starting permits infinitely adjustable water flow. P-29 allows you to move filter from one tank to another without losing siphon. 30 second filter recharge (without kinking hose).
