Product information

Clean and healthy water
Plant and food remains and metabolic substances lead to a deterioration of the quality of the water in the aquarium. Good water quality is necessary for healthy fish and plants. This can be achieved with aquarium filters. The filters suck in the aquarium water and remove the pollution and waste materials from the water. Filters also offer an ideal habitat for bacteria which decompose harmful substances.

Mechanical and biological filtering
The internal filter provides a large filter volume which enables both mechanical and biological filtering of the aquarium water. The modular structure of CristalProfi can be easily extended. The water outlet pipe can be turned 90°.

Easy to install
The internal filter is completely ready for connection and equipped with filter materials. Connect the filter to the wide jet pipe or spray bar. Place the filter in the aquarium and connect the power plug.

Energy-efficient and safe
The internal filter is TÜV tested and fully submersible. With only 8 W the JBL CristalProfi i100 results in large energy savings.

Extension:
If you still have space at the height of your aquarium or are changing to a higher aquarium, you can "extend" your JBL CristalProfi i internal filter with these modules. A single module has a height of 7 cm. The filter head has a height of 8 cm including the power control lever. A plate with a water drain valve is attached to the lowest module, making the lowest module a total of 8.2 cm high.
Example: A JBL CristalProfi i internal filter with two modules (i 80) has a height of 8.2 + 7.0 + 8.0 cm = 23.2 cm.

FAQ
Wear on the impeller - When should I replace it?

There is no general answer to this question. As with a car tyre, the duration and intensity of use is decisive. Many customers use the impellers for several years without any noticeable change. Heavy use of the impeller results in a shorter service life. With a car, you know the wear and tear caused by heavy braking, mechanical damage and many kilometres driven.

The following factors apply to an impeller:

1. Running time in hours
2. Throttling of the flow rate (max. 50 %) and thus lower cooling capacity
3. Dry running during water change (see 2.)
4. Mechanical damage (e.g. by snails, improper installation after removal, ...)
5. Heavy soiling

As it is a wearing part, the impeller is not covered by the warranty. For a long service life, you need to clean it regularly. This will prevent increased running noises. The impeller housing, the impeller and the shaft can be cleaned with a suitable cleaning brush.

If it is necessary to replace the impeller due to wear, always replace the complete set, impeller with shaft and 2 rubber bearings. This is the only way to ensure proper functioning and smooth running. When removing the impeller and shaft, a rubber bearing often gets stuck at the bottom of the impeller housing and is very difficult to remove. JBL has developed its own special tool for this purpose, which is available from pet shops under the name "Pulling aid for impeller bearing". A useful cleaning brush for the impeller housing is also included in the tool.

The filter / pump hums during operation

It’s to investigate the cause of this. With pumps and filters positioned inside, you do not need to do anything other than hold the unit freely in the water, keeping it out of contact from any other objects. It is important that the unit remains completely under water and is only touching your hand. If the running noise is now quiet, there is no sign of wear on the rotor, it is just resonance transmission to surrounding elements such as the cover, the base cabinet or anything adjacent to the aquarium. You can then decouple this by making small adjustments.

For external filters, make sure that the filter has 4 rubber feet at the bottom (except for the model CPe1901/2 with castors) and that it is only touching the cabinet there. To test the filter, place it next to or in front of the aquarium on a soft surface (e.g. a thick towel) and make sure that the hoses are not in contact with the cabinet. Many aquarium cabinets act like the sound box of a guitar with its sound hole. The smallest noise is amplified by the hollow body. Therefore, a soft underlay and, if necessary, lateral insulation are advantageous if the resonance is to be amplified. Tubes lying on top or in a very rigid installation with further attachments lead to the same effect. The test with the filter outside the cabinet, as described above, provides information about the actual operating noise.

Strong running noises are caused by a worn impeller, a too strong load on the impeller due to a power reduction (dirt or throttling) and by a too small height difference between the water surface and the filter head, as described in the manual. Another possibility is that CO2 sucked in from the fertiliser system or air from the diaphragm pump, which are introduced near the filter, cause loud running noises.

Why is the suction cup on my internal filter red-brown or light grey?

For the CristalProfi greenline internal filters, "red-brown" and "light grey" suction cups were used for a time. They are fully functional and differ only in their colour. In the spare parts shop you will find the black suction cups which were unavailable for a while, should you not like the colour.

My filter has become loud after a few months. What’s the reason for that?

The impeller of the filter is subject to constant wear and tear. We recommend you replace it. This way its smooth running is ensured. Make sure that the noises are not caused by trapped air.

The guarantee covers defects in material and assembly. The guarantee does not cover parts subject to wear and tear, such as the impellers or shafts as well as damage caused by external influences and improper handling.

How do I attach the suction cup to the CristalProfi greenline internal filter?

Press the enclosed large suction cups with a turning movement and gentle pressure into the side openings of the pump head. Make sure that the central pin reaches into the hole in the suction cup and reappears when it is attached. The correct installation is indicated in the following figure.

Ein sehr guter Innenfilter der in der Höhe variabel ist was ihn sehr vielseitig einsetzbar macht. Ebenfalls kann er durch die zusätzlichen Filtermedien die angeboten werden optimiert werden. Die Filterleistung ist sehr gut und der Filter sorgt für genügend Oberflächenströmung. Ebenfalls ist er sehr leise und somit eine klare Empfehlung!

Ein toller Innenfilter!

Wir haben den Cristal Profi i100 greenline Innenfilter im Aufzuchtbecken unserer L46 installiert. Wir sind sehr zufrieden. Der Innenfilter lässt sich einfach zusammenbauen und mit den Saugnäpfen im Aquarium befestigen. Gut ist auch das er beliebig erweiterbar ist, so dass man ihn je nach Belieben ausstatten kann. Der Filter hat eine ziemliche Power und die Wasseroberfläche ist dadurch schön in Bewegung. Er ist jedoch dafür sehr ruhig was wir sehr wichtig finde wenn man das Aquarium in der Wohnung stehen hat. Unsere kleinen L46 machen eine Menge Dreck und sie müssen sehr oft gefüttert werden, da sie noch im Wachstum sind. Der Cristal Profi i100 greenline Innenfilter macht seine Arbeit sehr gut und kommt damit gut zurecht, womit andere Innenfilter anderer Marken bereits kapituliert haben! Wir sind sehr zufrieden und können den Innenfilter von JBL wärmstens weiterempfehlen ;-)
