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.

Easy to install
The external filter is completely equipped and ready to connect. The built-in quick-start device makes the filter easy to install without the need for manual priming. The filter media are included in the contents.

Easy to clean
Replacing the easy to reach pre-filter means that you only rarely need to clean the rest of the filter. The large filter volume provides a high biological filtering performance involving several filter layers. The bio-filter balls inside have different diameters. This promotes the self-cleaning effect.

Energy efficient and safe
With only 11 W power consumption the CristalProfi e 902 offers substantial energy savings. At an effective, sustained water circulation the device consumes 31 % less power than comparable previous models. The patented hose connection bloc with a safety valve prevents water leakage when disconnecting the filter. JBL CristalProfi is TÜV tested.

New compared to the model JBL CristalProfi e 901 is the completely new and efficiently designed upper filter basket: It contains now a double as large one-piece filter mat as pre-filter instead of 2 small externally arranged pre-filter mats in the filter basket. This way the pre-filters don’t clogg as easily, even if there is a considerable amount of dirt, and the pre-filters don’t need to be cleaned as often.

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.

Can the filter be placed next to the aquarium?

No, as a rule this is not possible. Otherwise air will be sucked in and the water will come to a standstill. The filter will not work properly. If it is installed next to the aquarium, there should be a distance of at least 20 cm between the water surface and the top edge of the filter. When placing the filter in the aquarium cabinet, the difference in height between the water surface and the filter bottom must not exceed 180 cm (max. 120 cm for e402).

Why do the locking clips have a structured texture?

A further enhancement of the locking clips has ensured even more stability. The locking clips of the CristalProfi external filters are made of glass fibre reinforced plastic to ensure higher stability. This is easily discernible by its slightly fibrous texture.

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.

Very, very nice product.

First of all ease of use.

I am a total beginner in the world of aquariums and to assemble the product and start using it you will need nothing more but the instructions from the box and 5 minutes of your time max. The product itself is quite elegant and nicely designed as well quite compact so you will be able to tuck it where ever you want ( it will fit for sure ) also filter is silent ( no sounds what so ever ) but just enough sound from the spray bar to enjoy. Really happy with the product and definitely looking forward to trying some other products from jbl.

Meiner Meinung nach, sind die JBL greenline Filter eine der besten Filter, welche es gerade auf dem deutschen Markt gibt. Man bekommt ein ordentliches Gerät, welches sofort Anschlussbereit ist zu einem vernünftigen Preis... . Ich habe mich bei meinem 125l Becken für den e 902 entschieden.

-->Gebrauchsfertige Auslieferung. Es ist alles dabei (Filtermedien, Schläuche und einige Teile wie Winkel, Saugnäpfe, Ein&Auslass...).

-->Geringe Stromaufnahme

-->Besonders viele Möglichkeiten bei Problemen, verschiedene Filtermedien einzusetzen (z.B nach Medikamenteneinsatz, Algen...).

-->Seltene Reinigung notwendig

-->Kaum hörbar

-->Gute Ersatzteilversorgung

Viele Grüße

To 2 filtr mój z tej serii,posiadam też e 702. Z obu jestem zadowolony,prostota obsługi,łatwa konserwacja,wygląd i dostęp do części zamiennych. Zakupiłem e 902 obecnie ponieważ brakowało mi dodatkowego koszyka do biologii i jest ciut wydajniejszy. Fajna sprawa jest też że w razie awarii mam filtr zapasowy lub część części z 702 pasuje do e 902[kosze,aqua stop,uszczelki itp]. 902 pracuje cicho,chwilę się odpowietrzył a cześć mediów filtracyjnych przeniosłem z e 702 i nie będzie problemu z osiedleniem się bakterii w filtrze.

I really like this filtration. It's so quiet and really easy to clean. I have tried other brands but this filter is the best for me. I have it on all my 5 aquariums now. I think this is the best low budget filtration.

Preisleistungsmäßig ist das der beste Filter den man kaufen kann. Vergleichbare Filter mit dem Filtervolumen sind deutlich teurer. Die Ansaugfunktion mit der Pumpe funktioniert wirklich reibungslos, wenn diese mit anderen Außenfilter vergleicht.

Vorteile

+ brauchbare Ansaugfunktion

+ Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnisse

+ großes Filterkammervolumen

+ günstige Wechselfiltermedien

+ Qualitativ hochwertiger Aufbau mit entsprechenden wichtigen Funktionen

+ Stabile Filterkörbe

+ leichte Filterwartung ohne Wasserverlust

Nachteile

- hörbare (fällt nur in Relation wenn man diesen im Schlafzimmer verwendet)

Der perfekte Filter!

Ich nutze den e902 in einem 180 Liter Aquarium und bin rundum zufrieden. Aufbau und Bedienung sind sogar für mich als absoluten Technikleien kein Problem.

Ein- und Auslauf lassen sich bequem an den entsprechenden Hähnen einstellen und sich so optimal an die Anforderungen des Besatzes anpassen.

Ich nutze den Filter jetzt seit fast einem Jahr und musst die Schwämme bisher einmal reinigen, da die Leistung nachgelassen hatte.

An den Hähnen lassen sich der Ein- und Auslauf leicht abstellen und die Schläuche können so vom Filter getrennt werden ohne alles rund herum nass zu machen.

Auch das Preis/Leistungsverhältinis ist unschlagbar. Man bekommt genau das, was man für sein Geld erwartet.

Noch ein absoluter Pluspunkt: Der Filter ist sehr leise! Man hört ihn fast gar nicht.

Fazit: Von mir gibt es eine uneingeschränkte Kaufempfehlung!

Benutze den Filter nun schon seit einem Jahr, ich hatte nie Probleme mit ihm und er macht seinen Job klasse! Kein großer Schnickschnack, macht was er soll und ist leise im Betrieb. Für den Preis absolut Top!

Klare Empfehlung meinerseits

Ich habe den JBL Cristalprofi e902 und er ist sehr hochwertig verarbeitet, wie man es von JBL gewöhnt ist.

Außerdem ist er schön leise und sorgt für kristallklares Wasser.

Meine absolute Empfehlung!

Ich nutze selber aktuell 3 CPe Filter hatte schon insgesamt 4.

CPe 1902,1502,902 und 702.

Immer wieder wurde ich bestätigt. Das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis ist der Hammer.

Sicher gibt es Filter anderer Hersteller die mehr können. Aber das bezahlt man dann auch.

Bei den Cpe's bekommt man eine super Filterleistung in einem sehr gut verarbeitet und funktionierendem Produkt.

Ich habe kristallklares Wasser in jedem Becken an dem ich einen CPe betreibe.

Bei meinem 400L Becken habe ich nach einem halben Jahr das 1. mal die Schwämme ausspülen müssen. Die Leistung des Filter hatte dann nachgelassen. Aber das ist ja normal.

Durch die Trennung von Ein und Auslauf und Pumpenkopf lassen sich die Schläuche super leicht vom Filter trennen. Somit ist die Reinigung schnell und sauber zu erledigen. Kein Eimer drunter stellen oder ähnliches.

Die Filter laufen super leise! Im Schrank aber auch einfach neben dem Schrank. Der Geräuschpegel ist echt minimal!

Ich kann mich nur wiederholen. Meine absoluten Lieblingsfilter

Ein super Filter, der zur Zeit am meinem 60 Liter Becken läuft. Ich bin der Meinung, dass der Filter bereits für kleinere Becken geeignet ist als auf der Verpackung angegeben. Ansonsten ist der Filter JBL typisch. Hohe Qualität, saubere Verarbeitung, absolut unhörbar und beim Preis/Leistungsverhältnis super :)
