Is there anything coming down the road from a Red Sea attachment. That’s the only thing holding me back. Afraid to Mod the sump and mess something up.

To run two klir filters in series you use one controller only and one sensor only as well. You just get a “Y” cable to do so where you’ll plug the motors of both units into. When the water reaches the sensor it signals both motors to rotate in sync.
I ditched the controller and hooked mine up to my Aquatronica controller but I remember there being a second port on the Klir controller. I think I remember that it said that other port was for either the motor or the sensor on the secondary unit.

Let us replace that for you! Email [email protected] and cc me [email protected]. You are well within the warranty period. Could you provide photos for reference?
Ok here are the Pictures
BTW the Klir DI-4 works great, I think if I had just added some Silicone Grease from day one and this minor issue would not have happened. It has had zero effect on the unit and could probably be polished off with a Dremel polishing pad.

You can see the Grease that I put on it to stop further rusting.

Looks great but I am trying to figure out why you have the dry area in the middle while the top area has what looks like 1" of water?
Thats how the Klir works. Water comes down my overflow and spills out into that top section and pours down the openings in the Klir. As the filter clogs the water level rises. Once it reaches the sensor eye on the Klir it advances the roll and the water level falls. Its brilliant!

Yes I know, I have had one for about 6 months. I get the fact that your second baffle opening is low down in the water line but doesn't that put a tremendous amount of strain on the floss when it is literally holding in 80% of the water against air and then has to be pulled? The lower part of my floss is completely submerged, I am wondering if that is why I have never had the floss break.
BTW I like your setup a lot, it's just that it looks so different than mine.

Hey everyone,

No matter what I do, I can’t make my klir fit perfectly into my sump’s filter sock holes. There’s always water trickling down the sides :/


any suggestions on how to make it water tight?

Hello Everyone , when installing a 2nd klir filter do they need to be installed side by side or can I skip a holder? Also is there any harm in running each of them on a separate power source instead of together ? Thank you
