great little enclosed system with easy removal featured

Installation and Operation when I got it out of the box my biggest worry was how to set the return water to the tank. It provides you with the option for a spray or water jet, I use the jet and it works nicely at the top of my tank.


Performance vs. Expectations I have never had any issues with this filter system and I clean it every two weeks as part of my water change schedule.


Value for money I researched many other filters before I bought this RENA for my tank. Out of all that I could have purchased I took this one because of the easy on & easy off feature since I keep if stored under the tank in a compartment.


Customer Support No I haven't had to communicate with this company for anything. The manual is quite comprehensive with diagrams, photos and even stickers for mounting as reminders what to do.


Liked about it The best thing of this filter is the easy-on & easy-off of the top of this filter. Once you have the filter up and running, all you do is shut off the filter, lift a central lever and take off the top. NO water ever leaves the system, no dripping, no leakage, nothing. Than I take the filter to the sink, a quick rinse, replace the filter media. then back to the top, fit on the spouts to the filter case and move the lever back down. The tank than drains into the filter, reprimeing automatically and turn it bak on. It idn't any easier than that!


Didn't like I would have wished for a switch to turn the unit on/off instead of having to pull the plug. This switch could have also had a removable access point on the filter allowing me a clean getawy for cleaning. Overall this small thing i easy to live with as the rest of the unit is a breeze.
