JBL CristalProfi Greeline Filter Available Immediately With Bio Sponge Filters
JBL replaces the sintered glass filter material with bio sponge filters in its External filter series CristalProfi greenline, effective immediately. Sintered glass is considerably more expensive and would have caused a price increase in the filter series for the year 2013. In order to keep the prices stable and avoid a price increase, JBL has changed the contained filter material to bio sponge filters. The usable surface of the bio sponge filters is only marginally smaller than the one of the JBL MicroMec sintered glass filter materials which have been used to date. The sintered glass filter material has the only advantage of containing micro pores in which nitrate from bacteria which break down pollutants can be broken down. Aquarium owners who also want to break down nitrate in the filter can subsequently add the JBL MicroMec to the JBL external filter at any time.

My external filter makes loud, gurgling noises.
This is most likely due to a small bubble appearing periodically in the impeller housing of the CristalProfi which is then transported out of the filter.
If air enters the filter system, this may be an indication that a seal is no longer tight or that connecting pieces don’t close tightly. As there is constant slight low pressure during operation, this isn’t necessarily noticeable. In the event that there is a leak of this kind, you can test by switching off the filter temporarily, in which case a small amount of water would escape at the leaky spot. Please note: This test should only be carried out with careful monitoring.
Make sure to check the hoses on the inlet side for air pockets or fine streams of bubbles. Oftentimes, this is merely because it no longer fits securely at the JBL InSet.
Another possibility: The filter material may be very heavily soiled, which can result in the formation of fermentation gas which is periodically pressed out of the filter.
Please restart the filter as follows:
Remove the water from the body of the filter and the hoses. Make sure that the two small stopcock levers on the pump head are in the “OPEN” position. During the following start up procedure, the water outlet pipe with the spray bar, etc. must be positioned ABOVE the surface of the water for optimum ventilation of the appliance. Press the “START” button on the pump head repeatedly with the palm of your hand until water begins to flow into the suction hose (hose on “IN” ). Wait until the filter has filled completely with water and the water in the hose leading to the water outlet pipe (hose on “OUT”) is at the same level as the surface of the water in the aquarium. Connect the filter to the mains power supply. The water will now flow out of the water outlet pipe and into the aquarium. At first, it may be mixed with air that is still trapped between the layers of the filter media. Gently shake the filter to dislodge the air which will escape with the stream of water.
My external filter was loud or gurgled after it was installed.
After a new installation, the remaining air escapes from the filter media during the first 5-7 days. This causes “gurgling” or intermittent rattling. Additional problems may occur due to transmission of resonance. Please make sure that the filter has 4 rubber feet on the bottom and only has contact with the cabinet there and nowhere else. Test by placing the filter on a soft surface, making sure that the hoses don’t have any contact with the stand either.
If you notice air in the filter, please check the hose on the inlet side for air pockets and streams of bubbles. This would give an indication of the source of the trapped air.
After the Micromec balls are added, there is whitish cloudiness in the tank.
This in an indication that MicroMec passes into a filter basket after it is removed from the plastic bag, but is not rinsed well under running water in order to remove the dust from transport.
It may also be caused by improper changing of the filter media causing the bacterial culture to be excessively weakened and leading to bacterial bloom. This is not related to the JBL MirkoMec product.
The filter no long sucks in water.
Please clean all the hoses, pipes and the filter to remove any biofilms, algae and mud in them. It is not enough to simply rinse with tap water. Make sure to use the JBL Cleany hose brush for cleaning. Remove the water from the body of the filter and the hoses. Make sure that the two small stopcock levers on the pump head are in the “OPEN” position. During the following start up procedure, the water outlet pipe with the spray bar, etc. must be positioned ABOVE the surface of the water for optimum ventilation of the appliance. Press the “START” button on the pump head repeatedly with the palm of your hand until water begins to flow into the suction hose (hose on “IN” ). Wait until the filter has filled completely with water and the water in the hose leading to the water outlet pipe (hose on “OUT”) is at the same level as the surface of the water in the aquarium. Connect the filter to the mains power supply. The water will now flow out of the water outlet pipe and into the aquarium. At first, it may be mixed with air that is still trapped between the layers of the filter media. Gently shake the filter to dislodge the air which will escape with the stream of water.
A filter was returned due to low output. After the pump head and then the complete filter were replaced, each without any improvement, what was the solution?
Please see the picture.
My filter won’t start back up again. What should I do ?
Please check the following: Take the pump head off of the filter casing, remove the impeller cover and check whether the impeller is stuck. If not, plug the plug into the socket briefly. The impeller should at least run, or the magnetic force should at least be noticeable on the impeller. This usually solves the problem.
Do the pump heads of the greenline range CristalProfi e701 greenline, e901 greenline und e1501 greenline fit on the filter housings of the filters CristalProfi e700, CristalProfi e900 und CristalProfi e1500 ?
Yes, the pump heads of the CristalProfi greenline external filters have the same measurements as the CristalProfi external filters. It is therefore possible to simply switch the pump head.
Can the output of an external filter decrease ?
The motors in the pump heads of the JBL CristalProfi external filter are so-called synchronous motors, i.e. they rotate with a fixed speed that is dependent on the mains frequency, e.g. 3,000 rpm at 50 hertz.
Accordingly, an external filter can’t lose output. If the flow rate decreases, this is either due to soiled filter media or the formation of so-called biofilms, particularly in the hoses.
Please clean the hoses regularly with a hose brush to remove the biofilms, especially at the beginning. Flushing with warm water is not enough.
Are the CristalProfis of the e series also suited for saltwater/brackish water tanks?
Yes, they can be connected to a saltwater/brackish water tank without hesitation.
The start button of the CristalProfi external filter is stuck and does not return to the original position after is is pressed.
This is most likely because the start button was pushed at a slight angle.
Solution: Please unscrew the 4 screws at the corners which secure the lateral handles. After the handles are lifted, you will see 4 more screws which secure the pump head cover. Unscrew these screws. Now you can lift the pump head cover.
This start button is screwed onto a connecting piece. Please turn the button to loosen it. The tension on the spring of the start button usually releases itself after the first rotation.
Replace the pump head cover and the handles in reverse order.

Can I add the carbon dioxide (CO₂) in the suction nozzle of the external filter ?
It is not advisable to add the carbon dioxide (CO₂) to the tank water via the suction side of an external filter such as JBL CristalProfi.
1) There is always a slight vacuum when the filter is running, so that degasification of the CO₂ may occur.
2) The undissolved gas bubbles collect in the impeller housing, which may lead to running noise.
3) There is also a risk of the water current in the impeller housing stopping, which may cause a loss of function in the filter.
4) The starting button does not function properly when the filter is put into operation.
Can the impellers of the JBL CristalProfi e700, e900 or e1500 filters be used in the JBL CristalProfi e701, e901 or e1501 Greenline filters ?
Even if the impellers of the JBL CristalProfi e700, e900 or e1500 filters fit into the impeller housing of the JBL CristalProfi e701, e901 or e1501 filters, it is by no means advisable to use them together.
The magnets of the impellers of the JBL CristalProfi e700, e900 and e1500 filters are slightly smaller than the magnets of the impellers of the JBL CristalProfi e701, e901 and e1501 filters.
As a result, the power transmission via the magnetic coupling is not as reliable, the filters may not start up or may stop during operation, so that the pump heads are no longer cooled properly
This may cause pump head failure.
Therefore, please make sure to only use the appropriate original impellers. No warranty can be assumed if other combinations are used.
