I love this filter. I had all kinds of filters over the last 30 years of owning and taking care of fish aquariums. And by far this is the most efficient filter I've ever owned. It's easy to clean and maintain and works fantastic. I would recommend this filter to whomever want a crystal clean aquarium.
Best filter made for the money. I have had 2 1000's running my 150 ga gold fish kennel (tank) for over 4 years. Never had a problem other than needing to change the impeller O ring a few times. Forget all those expensive filters this is the only one you will ever need. Penn Plax has replacement parts and often ships the O rings at no cost. Wouldn't use anything else!
I got my first Cascade 1000 used as a clearance package with my 55 gallon tank when the local mom and pops pet shop went out of business back in 2006. I loved it, it kept the tank crystal clear and the noise can't be distinguished from the computer fan. I had guppies for a while, angels, and mostly gourami. I've always had sand in my tank. Never had an issue with water clarity.I had to replace the impeller a couple of times and a seal. It finally played out and I couldn't figure out where the leak was coming from. My tank has been down about a year, so I think 8 years was a good value for not knowing how old the filter was to begin with, since I didn't think to ask.This new filter started right up and is working just as good as my old one did, I'm very happy with this filter.
Very easy to setup a good water flow, media cost is great.
Can barely hear it running.... It is a good value filter system for sure. If it lasts the three year warranty duration I'll most likely buy another.
I got my first 1500 one given to me by a fellow moving out of town. Along with a 250 gallon glass aquarium. I never set up that aquarium but I added this canister filter to my 275 gallon Aquaponics Flood and drain system for added solids removal. Works great even though it is way way undersized for the load I'm putting it under. But it does help...Don't think there is such a thing as too much filtration when you messing with Tilapia. My main use for this filter is to help my buddy out with his seasonal Aquaponics system that he only runs in the summer time. Jump starts his Nitrogen Cycle. I also use it to clean out 20 and 30 gallon Aquaponics systems that I have. I know I have a non-standard use for this filter. But I have really enjoyed having it so much I'm buying a second one as a back up.
Within two days my water was crystal clear. Easy to set up and maintain.
I replaced 3 fluval filters with this one and it keeps my water crystal clean in a 250 gallon tank. Cleaning it only takes about 10 minutes. Very easy. Love it. Super quiet. I have it sitting under the cabinet and you can't hear it at all
Cascade 1200 for 55 gal tank. Set-up was easy and simple. I've used several canister filters and none did a better job of clearing the water as this filter has done. Great price too!
This is my first purchase of a canister filter. It was at a great price so that was the biggest seller. It arrived promptly and in great condition. Now as for my husband, my 30 gl tank sits on the cabinet right behind him and he thought that it would be really loud. Glad to say that it was whisper quiet. I'm very pleased with my filter.
After one year purchasing the Cascade 1500, the water is crystal clear. Water pressure is still going strong. The body casing is translucent blue so you can see if the baskets are going to be filthy. I recommend filling the top 2 baskets with bio-rings of your choice (since you have a total of 5 baskets). This filter competes with the best without a doubt!
We bought the Cascade filter. It exceeded expectations! The water in the tank is finally as clear as we had hoped it would be. It is an outstanding product and does a great job! We have a 29 gallon tank with freshwater fish.
I just ordered the cascade canister 1200 filter, salt and freshwater. you cant hear it running at all, the flow of water coming out is strong. i have a 150 gallon and it has a water current running through it now. its like having a quality filtered powerhead.
I purchased the cascade 1500 along with extra floss, sponge, bio rings and carbon.The filter is currently on a 90 gallon tank also with a whisper 60 and an EX 70. The fish consists of 6 Koi. Okay, now for the review,the filter has been cycling for about 2 1/2 months - super quiet! I have the pipe sprayer attachment on and only hear my bubble wand. If you read other reviews about priming problems, its because the intake hose from the tank to the filter should be as STRAIGHT as possible.I had no problem priming but it just took a few more pumps and you will hear it start siphoning. Cleaning is very easy. It has enough room in the top basket for 2 packs of bio rings. I purchased everything from PetMountain and nobody came close to beating their prices. Excellent product!
