    1. Leaking Review by Daniel

      Had one of these previously and the pump motor failed after 10 years. The new one is leaking 1 out of 3 times I tried to get it to work. (Posted on 5/11/2017)

    2. Great filter my 2nd one Review by DJ

      This is my second XP3. Wanted to stick to the same as what I have and I think it works great. I have 2 on my 125g cichlid tank. Flow is very good. Also bought it while on sale which was nice. Parts are fairly easy to find and not that expensive. Set up is easy enough but with my new one I wasn't getting any flow and couldn't figure out why(thought I had faulty machine). Found I didn't have hose base in tight enough on machine and once I pushed it in more it started working. Wish I didn't take so long to figure out the problem(so not the machines fault), but now I know and maybe this info will help someone else. (Posted on 1/24/2017)

    3. 2nd one Review by Kim

      I liked the first one I bought a few years ago so much I just bought another to replace a smaller Fluval that just couldn't keep up. It is filtering my 72 gal Mbuna tank and the water is crystal clear now with a nice flow to keep the fish exercising just the right amount. (Posted on 6/1/2016)

    5. It works Review by Tyrone

      I've used this product for about eight years and am on my third unit. It works well most of the time and does not require too much maintenance, but can be finicky when it is not working and has very little support outside the warranty period. I only continue to use this product because of the price point and am too set in my ways to toy with a new product or investigate how well other filters work or last for! That being said, I may have to bite the bullet if it develops an issue any time soon. (Posted on 12/4/2015)
