DescriptionSicce has been manufacturing industry-leading pumps for years. Recently, we challenged our engineers to develop a canister filter that offers exceptional value to customers without sacrificing quality or features. We asked them to create a filter that is whisper quiet, while also providing higher flow rates per watt of electricity consumed than any other unit currently available. The design they developed features a double- insulated pump wall and advanced rotor design—already in use on our existing pumps—to achieve that. They came up with a canister design that is compact, yet offers extremely high performance. Not satisfied to stop there, they also created a wide range of new media to ensure top performance.
Sicce knows aquarium hobbyists like to customize canister filters for their individual application. The Whale padded media were created to do just that. We also made sure to include popular features like quick disconnects and a priming system. But we put the priming system in the intake, rather than in the lid of the canister, where it is a leak waiting to happen and poses difficulties when repair is attempted. Nothing relating to performance was overlooked, right down to our thick-walled, proprietary grey tubing and higher pressure locking clips.
