The D-D ClariSea SK 5000 Fleece Filter fleece filter, one of three fleece roll filters designed and also distributed by D-D aquariums. This type of filter is not new, but the affordability is. Roll filters or fleece filters have been around a long time but the prices were just silly. The ClariSea range however has brought the fleece roll filter within reach of masses with a great product at a realistic price. So, what is it and what is it for? Well basically, an automated prefilter for a sump filtered fish tank. The ClariSea fleece filter is an alternative to filter socks of filter wool, found usually in the first sump chamber.

Without doubt, filter wool or socks do a great job the downside is maintenance. If you own a sump filter you will be aware just how often the wool or socks need to be changed or cleaned. In many cases cleaning or changing becomes a daily chore. Now as much as we love our tanks they are supposedly to enjoy not employ.

What’s so good about the ClariSea Filter.

Well there are numerous things to consider, Daily maintenance becomes monthly in the worst cases and the end of roll alarm will tell you when.

Returned water always has a clean pre filter to polish and clean it giving crystal clear water. The ClariSea SK5000 traps food particles and fish waste along with non-organics from entering the main filter chambers. Unlike filter socks or wool where most of the time we find the water bypassing down the overflows as these filters do spend most time blocked.

Heavy loads of waste are not left to rot in the prefilter dissolving a polluting the tank.  Because in the event that the D-D ClariSea SK 5000’s Fleece becomes blocked it is rolled up and removed from water contact. The fact that the waste is rolled up and away from the water not only greatly reduces Phosphate and Nitrate it always givers clear clean water. Along with the lower NO3 and PO4 levels we also save money in the associated costs of removing them. So, the ClariSea SK 5000 Gen 3Fleece Filter will eventually pay for itself.

ClariSea SK5000 Fleece Filter Maintenance is hardly anything, when the roll is used the alarm will notify you. To change the ClariSea SK5000 Fleece Filter roll is an easy two minute job, then leave it be until next time.
