Aquarium filters have never been objects of desire. You would never show one off to your friends, or linger longingly in the aquatics store, working out how you could get your hands on one. Those clunky, ugly boxes have always been functional, never desirableuntil now. Introducing the FLUVAL G Series, a filter so revolutionary in every way that it is destined to change the way filters are designedforever.
CAN A FILTER REALLY BE BEAUTIFUL? Until now, the answer would have to be "NO"but that was before Fluval G. With its sumptuous gloss black finish, aluminum detailing and cool blue backlit display, the Fluval G Series will change people's perceptions for good. No longer will the humble filter need to be hidden away in a cabinet. Fluval G demands to be out on display as the ultimate aquarists' accessory.
Fully Digital Display with Advanced Aquarium Monitoring
Fluval G's Hydrotech Performance Monitor an intelligent system capable of monitoring vital functions such as flow rate, conductivity and water temperature, while displaying results in numerical and graph format as well as providing maintenance alerts on the interactive LCD screen.
With the Fluval G, there's never a need for manual siphoning. After plugging the unit in, just push the easy priming button all the way down 23 times in fast sequence. As water is drawn through the intake hosing, it fills the canister pushing air out of its way and making its way back into the aquarium through the output nozzles or optional spray bars.
With its proprietary technology the AquaStop system makes maintenance easy, allowing you to stop the water flow by simply bringing the AquaStop valve lever into an upright position. By lifting the AquaStop release lever, the complete assembly can be conveniently removed without separating the hosing. The AquaStop valve lever can also be used to regulate the water flow with no harm to the motor or its components.
The Fluval G silicone gasket provides superior sealing and long term reliability. The inherent properties such as low friction, resistance to temperatures, extreme softness and superior adhesion and flexibility guarantee long term sealing.
Telescopic Intake and Strainer / Rim attachment / Spray Nozzles or Spray Bars
Water is drawn through the multilamella intake strainer, designed to repel debris and resist the buildup of solids that would normally impede water flow. Additional intake strainers can be attached to extend the intake screen surface. Alternatively, the Y connector can be used for maximum placement versatility. The intake system, attached to the telescopic intake tube, can be adjusted to fit most aquarium depths.
The output nozzles or spray bars are fitted with ball joints. When connected to the Y connector, they can be rotated and individually adjusted to send multiple streams of clean water toward all corners of the aquarium, thus ensuring maximum circulation.
For extra quick setup, the innovative rim attachments easily slide over any aquarium rim up to 32 mm and/or 1.25 in width and securely hold the intake and output assemblies in place.
The Fluval G is powered by an advanced three component drive system, providing power, long term reliability with virtually zero noise and high performance. The powerful yet compact synchronized dual drive coil is controlled by one of two Fluval G microprocessors which continuously monitor and adjust start speed, impeller direction, power absorption and performance. The ferrite impeller spins on an aluminum oxide ceramic impeller shaft and is fitted with a high temperature performance polymer thrust bearing, offering exceptional wear resistant properties. With unique high-quality components, advanced control system and low energy consumption the Fluval G drive pumps deliver unparalleled performance and durability.
From the drive pump to the interactive 8000 pixel LCD panel, all functional aspects and monitoring features of the Fluval G operational systems are powered by a Microchip Flash Microcontroller with NanoWatt XLP Technology. In addition to all the other advanced features that will make life easier for passionate fish keepers, this application is used for the first time in aquarium filtration, resulting in low power consumption, high flow rates and quiet operation.
No Filter ByPass
The traditional mechanical filtration foam has been replaced with a compact high capacity pleated cartridge, which traps much more suspended debris. With regular rinsing waste can be removed from the aquarium water before it breaks down, thus resulting in a healthier aquarium.
