Aqua One ‘wool’ pads are actually composed of fine polymer fibres that will not rot in water and have a long, effective operating life. The pads operate mainly to trap solids and should be discarded when choked with waste and debris. Rinsing this fine polymer new works well and refitting an old, flat polymer wool pad only serves to decrease the filter flow rate, re-introduce old waste matter and reduce the operating life of the filter. Is that really an economy you want to make?
We suggest that a fresh polymer wool pad each month will improve water quality and clarity, maximise filter flow and prevent blockages and over flows. This will reduce your work load and keep your set up looking its very best.
