Cascade 1000 Canister
Do not purchase for Marine Aquariums. Screws that hold motor assembly together rust a break making it useless to replace screws
by Dean W. Cooper
I received my cascade 1000 in 2007. It is now 2014. I thought I needed to replace my motor housing gasket but it turned out to be the primmer pump has a steel spring in it that oxidized the plastic and made a hole. PENN PLAX should have used a stainless steel spring so this wouldn't have happened. and my pump would have lasted another 7 years.
Fishies love it
This is my second 1000 Canister. I had the other one 6 years. I waited to long to order a new tank and I was not sure my fish was going to survive. The tank came just in time and the fish are now very happy. They are 8 to 10 years old. So the Cascade 1000 works great.
i have very hard water, this is my second cascade 1000 system i love how clear my tanks are if your looking for a good system this is it. Its reliable easy and works fantasic. My order was processed and i recieved my system very fast. Its easy to clean worth the money for peace of mind that your fish are in a clean and bright tank.

I got this filter for 5 years,still working really well for my 100 gal. tank.easy to maintain and quiet.
Nice and silent, good power and does its job. Water is clear and creates a flow in the tank. I think the quality is good or better than any fluval and the price is better.
Draw of luck

I have this filter on a 125 gallon aquarium. It is 4 years old and still runs great. My water clarity is crystal. Now you may have a bad experience with this brand of filters and say that it's crap but I also have fluval filters which Evernote glorifies and that's the one that gives me a hard time.
Good quality for the price
by Jon from Los Angeles
I think the other user had a bad experience, I did not find the plastic quality to be less than similar products. For the price, if you read on other sites like Amazon you will receive mostly favorable reviews--especially for the price which is much less than Eheim or Fluval canister filters and the component parts are also less expensive, but decently made.

I bought the version for a 150 gal tank. It arrived cracked but upon inspection the entire filter including the inlet/oult nozzels was made of very thin low grade plastic. The nozzles will fail in use and the entire thing is poorly made. Dont buy it I sent it back and exchanged it for the Marineland filter which is of better quality..
