111c Carbon and Wool Cartridge from Aqua One - (25111C)
Aqua One's 111c Carbon and Wool Cartridge is an essential part of the filtration system of a number of Aqua One filtration systems, including: NanoSkim 90.
The 111c Cartridges performs two very important funtions in the aquarium. Firstly, the high quality Aqua One Activated Carbon both purifies and clarifies the aquarium water, removing discolouration and odours, whilst the Polymer Wool layer on top not only protects the carbon from becoming clogged, the fine wool traps the very smallest particles of aquarium debris / waste.
Change every 4 weeks
You'll see from the video below that the 111c cartridge can become very dirty in the aquarium filter system, working hard to trap unwanted waste matter and it's clear that this cannot be rinsed successfully and must be replaced with a fresh 111c cartridge.
Equally, it's important to note that the Activated Carbon Particles in the 111c will have become completely used up within 4 to 6 weeks, as the carbon granules will have absorbed their full capacity of unwanted impurities in this time and for this reason too, the 111c cartridge must be replaced with a brand new one.
Easy to install, low maintenance
Aqua One's filtration pads and cartridges are well known for both their quality and ease of installation and the 111c Carbon and Wool Cartridge is no exception. It's recommended to change the 111c Cartridges every 4 weeks to help keep your filter system in perfect working order.
Of course it's also worth checking the condition of the 111c once every couple of weeks to ensure that it's not become completely clogged with aquarium debris. If it has, then it's time to replace it with a fresh cartridge. The lifespan of the 111c Carbon and Wool Cartridge will generally be determined by the quality of aquarium water in your aquarium but is ALWAYS considered spent after 6 weeks.
