Fluval C3 Power Filter
The Fluval C3 Power Filter features 5 stages of filtration: 2 mechanical, 1 chemical and 2 biological stages for top performance. Each and every filter is equipped with the Fluval C3 Poly/Foam, Activated Carbon, C-nodes and drip tray pad. An integrated trickle chamber filled with C-Nodes is where biological filtration is super charged for fast and efficient nitrification. The mechanical filtration is performed by a dual layer of foam and polyester, and is easily got rid of for quick cleaning. The patented recirculation grid enhances mechanical filtration when the Float rate is reduced. A convenient chemical insert basket directs water Float to maximize toxin removal. Maintaining only one stage at a time will preserve a good suggestion bacteria, resulting in a stress-free environment, whilst ensuring aquarium water stays clear. The Fluval C3 Power Filter clips on, is ideal to be used on aquariums between 20 to 50 gallons and is the very best way to supply your fish with refreshing and clear water.
Maximum Versatility and Premium Performance
Engineered to create superior water quality, the Fluval C Power Filter provides extensive 5-stage filtration for outstanding results. The Power Filter is designed to supply maximum surface area and optimum dwell times in all stages of the filtration process.
New 5 Stage Filtration System
Stage 1 & 2: Mechanical- Poly/Foam Pad Effective mechanical filtration is very important for efficient chemical and biological filtration. The large surface area of the Poly/Foam pad effectively performs two stages of Mechanical filtration. The first stage of porous foam traps large particles and the second one stage of dense polyester captures fine debris.
Stage 3: Chemical- Activated Carbon Insert The Fluval Activated Carbon Filter Insert incorporates 100% premium research grade carbon, which provides quite a lot of surface area for adsorption of undesirable impurities. The activated carbon filter insert eliminates unwanted odors, discoloration and impurities, resulting in a crystal clear aquarium.
Stage 4: Biological-Bio-Screen An additional hydraulic circuit conveys a part of the intake water to the Bio-Screen placed at the top of the Trickle Chamber cover. Fluval’s Bio-Screen eliminates any debris before dripping into the biological chamber. It also ensures that the water pumped to the Trickle Chamber is frivolously spread through all areas before it drips at the C-Nodes, which can be contained in the chamber. The motion of water dropping slowly through the grids mimics the rain.
Stage 5: Biological- C-Nodes The surface of the C-Nodes is made up of a complex pore system that provides optimal living space for a good suggestion bacteria to thrive and improve the removal of ammonia and nitrites. The new “Star Shape” provides a higher filtration surface and more biological power than a traditional cartridge, resulting in a healthy aquarium environment.
Patented Refiltration System
Sometimes delicate fish and plants require a more gentle water Float. Fluvals’ patented re-filtration system lets you keep watch over the Float rate without compromising filtration efficiency. When the Float rate is reduced, as much as 50% of the water within the filter chamber is re-processed more than one times. More impurities are filtered out, creating a more fit tank with sparkling clean and clear water

Power Filter Maintenance
For optimal performance it’s endorsed to clean the impeller cover assembly every year. The motor will have to be thoroughly cleaned each three months. At all times unplug the Fluval C Power Filter prior to cleaning. Dispose of cover, filter media and discard water remaining in the filter case. Thoroughly rinse collected debris from the case, impeller cover and impeller assembly the usage of clear lukewarm water. The intake “U” tube and extension tube will also be cleaned with a filter stem brush to take away any buildup of deposits. When all parts have been cleaned and thoroughly rinsed, reassemble filter and replace any scheduled media. Install the filter once again back at the aquarium with the intention that the filter is tipped fairly forward. Then fill the Fluval C filter box with aquarium water. After all plug the filter into an electrical outlet and the Fluval C Power Filter will self-prime and begin running in a couple of seconds.
