The Klir Filter is without a doubt one of the hottest aquarium products coming out later this fall. The Klir Fleece Filter is a modular aquarium filter that automatically unrolls new material as it gets clogged, removing suspended particles from your aquarium and producing crystal clear water.
Klir’s Filtration 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.
- And best of all, due to its innovative flexible design, the Klir can be used in most existing sumps!
FAQ from MACNA Attendees
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. As the tray is extended, it will be able to handle more flow.
Q. Does the used fleece smell?
A. Amazingly NO! Unlike filter socks, the fleece material does not hold on to water - 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. That is a loaded question!!! Every system is different so feeding habits and stocking level among many things contribute to how long a roll of fleece lasts. During our inhouse testing, we are seeing 10-12 weeks 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 multiple 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. Perfect as a holiday gift!
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
