A great benefit of the Aqueon QuietFlow filters is the internal pump design that helps dampen noise, eliminates leaks and because it is self-priming, starts up automatically after cleaning or power interruptions. Higher flow rates also ensure a higher dissolved oxygen content for healthier, more active fish.
There are four total stages of filtration–mechanical, chemical, biological and an additional specialty pad–for the cleanest, clearest, healthiest water.
- Stage 1 – Dense floss removes particles and debris.
- Stage 2 – Activated carbon removes toxins, odors and discoloration.
- Stage 3 – Patented Bio-Holster removes toxic ammonia and nitrites.
- Stage 4 – Diffuser grid removes additional toxins while adding oxygen for more active fish. It also reduces splashing makes the return exceptionally quiet.
