48c Carbon and Wool Cartridge from Aqua One - (25048c)
Aqua One's 48c Carbon and Wool Cartridge is an essential part of the hang on filtration system utilised by the Clearview 500.
The 48c Cartridge 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 4-6 weeks
The 48c 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 48c cartridge.
Equally, it's important to note that the Activated Carbon Particles in the 48c will also have become completely used up within 4 to 6 weeks, as the carbon granules will have by this time, absorbed their full capacity of unwanted impurities and for this reason too, the 48c cartridge must be replaced with a brand new one.
Easy to install, low maintenance
It's a very simple process to replace the 48c Carbon and Wool Cartridge in your Clearview 500 and this is one of the many great aspects of Aqua One's Clearview Series hang on filters. The 48c may be inexpensive but it's a very important component in your filter system and is essential to the well being of your aquarium inhabitants.
48c Cartridge are extremely easy to install and maintain, but it's always worth checking the condition of the 48c once every couple of weeks to ensure that it's not become completely clogged with aquarium debris. The lifespan of the 48c 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.
