have four cascade filters. two 1500 and two 1000. no problems leaks or anything else. looking to get few more for my other tanks.
to margaret....dont bother buying fluval they do the same thing as your filter....i have 6 fluvals and they all leak at some point in time
I LIKE IT BUT....... 11/7/2012
I really like the concept, ? easy maint of this filter. However, if the power goes off for even seconds it starts leaking, power off for extended time on a full tank it leaks out until suction is lost. I have 30 years plus of experience & I know what I'm doing. I have spare o rings and other parts just in case. The only thing anyone could attribute the leaking (from canister by the way) to is the o ring is bad (not on a brand new filter - but I tried it anyway) or I don't have it connected properly (another negative). I have 3 of these by the way. Would love to stick it out with these filters BUT it is extremely annoying doing maint. and always worrying what if the power goes out. I have called the company and That Pet Place and no one really has an answer. Googled myself beyond google to get some advice ~ still no solutions. I'm thinking of switching over to Fluval but really can't afford or want to spend the money if its not necessary. These filters are only about 3 years old and I have had this problem from the very start with all three. Any advice is welcomed. I love I can go about 6 months using 2 1500's on a 150 gal with oscars/red devil - and yes they get along fine! Of course I do weekly water changes.

Great Filter had no problems with this I have it for at least 8 months very easy to maintain and filters the aquarium great. Easy to clean piece of cake I would recommend this filter to anyone looking for a good filter at a good price.
