Instrument for removing fleece

You may capture and efficiently remove debris and other foreign particles from your water without ever changing a filter sock again by letting the water from your aquariums to overflow into the ClariSea. The ClariSea uses a sensor to detect when the fleece is beginning to clog and advances the fleece automatically so that clean fleece can collect more particles. The frequency of maintenance will depend on the particulars of your aquarium, but it just takes a minute to remove the old fleece rolls.
