Product information

Maintenance and cleaning
Food and plant remains and metabolic products create pollution in the aquarium water. By cleaning the tank and accessories and by carrying out regular partial water changes, your aquarium inhabitants will stay happy and you will enjoy your aquarium more too.

Clean hoses
JBL’s double-ended hose brush has a highly flexible steel helix with brushes at both ends and ensures clean hoses and therefore 30 % more filter performance. Regular cleaning maintains the biological balance in the aquarium and averts a loss of filter performance.

The internal soiling of the hoses is not only caused by algae, it is also caused by normal biological processes. Bacterial lawns form on the inside of the plastic surface, which is not too much of a problem for the fish. But this “slimy” coating reduces, as already mentioned, the water flow by up to 30 %!

Convenient use
Remove hose from its device, push helix with brushes at the ends through the hose and pull. Clean about every eight weeks.

Why do you need a hose brush to clean the filter hoses?

Biofilms and algae deposits accumulate on the inner wall of the hoses and can quickly reduce the performance of the external filter by 30% or more. Rinsing with warm water does not constitute sufficient cleaning as it only marginally removes the deposits. If the performance of the filter has decreased, the use of a hose brush, such as the JBL Cleany, is recommended. With a little water in a shower tray, you will be amazed at the dirt that comes out and also at the performance your external filter will regain afterwards.

Super Brüste zum Sauber machen

diskusowner - German

Ich bin immer wieder überrascht nach jedem benutzen des Jbl Cleany wie schnell und gründlich er die Filterwege säubert.

Und ich kann es nur bestätigen, nach jeder Reinigung nimmt die Filterleistung wieder deutlich zu.

Ich möchte dieses Produkt nicht mehr missen.

JBL Cleany ist ein top Schlauchreiniger!

Die Länge, ist der große Vorteil dieses Produktes. Auch bei langen Schläuchen bekommt man mühelos alle Ablagerungen entfernt.

Von mir gibt es dafür eine klare Kaufempfehlung.

Der_Egger - German

Zuerst dachte ich, dass mein Filter evtl. defekt sein könnte.

Bei genauerer Betrachtung der Schläuche habe ich festgestellt, dass diese komplett mit Ablagerungen zu waren.

Den JBL Cleany gekauft, Schläuche abgemacht und gereinigt und zack... der Filter läuft wieder wie am ersten Tag.

Super verarbeitet und reinigt die Schläuche mega effektiv.

Meiner Meinung nach ein MUSS für jeden, der einen Außenfilter in Verwendung hat.

cedric_scape - French

Goupillon vraiment utile pour mes tuyaux 12/16, rien à dire sur le nettoyage

mais mes filtres étant proches des mes aquariums , je n'ai pas de grande longueur de tuyau

la longueur du goupillon est donc un peu trop grand dans mon cas

gabelschereblog - German

Absolutes Muss zur Pflege! Hilft uns sehr, die Schläuche effektiv und schnell zu reinigen.
