Installation Set Kit 1 - Intake Customization for External Filters (5/8" to 3/4" tubing)
The Installation Set Kit 1 lets you customize the intake of your external filter. This installs in place of the standard intake tube on your filter. The intake line will fill with aquarium water without detaching the hose connector, closing the circuit and allowing automatic flow to the filter. Aids in aeration and easy hose cleaning.
Installation Kit 1 is compatible with all aquarium heights and for all external filter makes with a shut-off device on the intake side. If this device is not available, a shut-off tap must be installed on the inlet hose. Fits 5/8" to 3/4" tubing.
This item should be installed in place of the usual intake tube of your external filter.
After you have inserted the sealing rings in the grooves provided in the intake hose, fit together 2 or 3 tubes, depending on the height of the aquarium, plus the connector.
The inlet strainer is attached to the lower end. Attach the intake hose with the suction cups to the inside of the aquarium.
Make the connection between the connector and the intake side of the filter by means of the hose coupling.
Unplug the filter. Close the shut-off valve on the inlet side and unscrew the cap on the connector.
With a suitable container pour aquarium water into the opening until the inlet hose is filled completely.
Screw on the cap again and open the shut-off valve. Now the filter will fill automatically and once filled, plug filter back in again.
