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 20 W power consumption the CristalProfi e 1502 offers substantial energy savings. At an effective, sustained water circulation the device consumes 27 % 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 1501 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.

After a long time with another brand that I was a big fan of, I chose to try something else and after some time looking, the choice fell on a JBL it seemed like the best product on power and flow and filter capacity. Am happy with the e1502 it is silent running ok long between cleanings. I currently have a tank of 310 liters with 2 large catfish of 25-45 cm and the pump is at the same height as the water so it must suck a lot. I live that my bio material in the 2 upper trays gets dirty but do not quite know how it happens, but try a little different setup of the filter to see if it helps. tor it has something to do with when the pre-filter gets filled

Ein toller geräuscharmer Außenfilter!

Wir waren schon länger auf der Suche nach einem sehr guten Außenfilter für das Aquarium unseres MBU Kugelfisches Kai-Uwe. Daher haben wir uns sehr darüber gefreut in dem Außenfilter CristalProfi e 1502 greenline von JBL fündig geworden zu sein. Der Außenfilter ist einfach und schnell installiert. Kein nerviges langen Pumpen mehr! Er hat eine Ansaughilfe die sehr einfach zu bedienen ist und sofort funktioniert. Im Lieferumfang ist ein Breitstrahlrohr sowie ein Düsenrohrstrahler enthalten. Die Ausströmgeschwindigkeit lässt sich am Außenfilter einstellen. Der Außenfilter hat von der Pumpenleistung richtig Power! Dies ist auch sehr wichtig da ein MBU Kugelfisch wie Kai-Uwe eine Menge Häufchen macht. ;-)

Daher kann ich den Die Ausströmgeschwindigkeit lässt sich am Außenfilter einstellen. Der Außenfilter hat von der Pumpenleistung richtig Power! Kai-Uwe ist nun sehr glücklich, da seine Hinterlassenschaften nun gut angesaugt und entfernt werden. 😉😅

Ich nutze nun schon seit über 1 Jahr den JBL e1502 an meinem 300 Liter Aquarium, vorher hatte ich einen EHEIM Filter mit dem ich einfach nicht zufrieden war! Als ich auf den JBL e1502 gewechselt habe war ich als erstes von der einfachen Inbetriebnahme begeistert, kein langes Pumpen oder laute Geräusche, er lief sofort los und mein Wasser ist trotz Hohem Besatz Christal Klar. Wichtig ist bei solchen Filtern die Pflege der Dichtungen und verschlüsse das Ihr nicht irgendwann das Böse erwachen habt und im Nassen Zimmer steht! JBL bietet hierzu Pflege Produkte an, da solltet Ihr bitte nicht dran sparen! Das Filtermedium ist bereits vorhanden und es besteht die Möglichkeit Erweiterungen einzubringen, da die Filtermatten Ausschnitte haben die man bei Bedarf entnehmen und durch zum Beispiel Silikat Entferner Torf oder sonstigen Medien ersetzen kann.

Absolute Kaufempfehlung 👌👍

Großes Filtervolumen, konstanter Durchfluss, gute Handhabung. Kunststoffgehäuse könnte etwas hochwertiger ausgeführt sein, der Filter ist trotzdem realtiv leise. Ich betreibe den e1502 an einem 180l Becken. Für Aquarien über 250l würde ich zum e1902 greifen, wie bei allen Herstellern bei der Auswahl der richtigen Filtergröße also eher an der angegebenen Untergrenze orientieren.

Seit der Umrüstung von Innen-auf Außenfilter betreibe ich mein 350l Becken mit dem e1502 und bin sehr zufrieden. Der Filter läuft sehr leise und extrem effizient. Das Wasser ist sauber und klar. Die Strömungsintensität kann man je nach Bedarf regulieren. Mit der Qualität und Verarbeitung des Filters bin ich sehr zufrieden und die Handhabung ist einfach. Die Ausstattung der einzelnen Filterkammern kann man beliebig austauschen bzw. erweitern. Ein sehr zuverlässiger Filter, den ich gerne empfehlen kann.

Dieser Filter läuft seit 10Tg. an einem 200l Aquarium!

Er filtert einwandfrei und das Wasser ist nach 3Tg. schon klar!

Die Anordnung der Filtermedien habe ich geänder in einer sinnvollen Reihenfolge und unter als erstes JBL Cermec dann blaue Schwämme, danach Siporax mit blauen Schwamm und zuletzt vor dem Grobfilter JBL MicroMec.

Der Filter ist nach 3Tg. fast nicht mehr hörbar!!!!!!

Zum entlüften leicht schütteln und vorsichtig den Ansaugknopf betätigen, danach sprudelt nochmal ordentlich Luft raus.

Ich kann den Filter ohne Einschränkungen weiter empfehlen!

Super filters!

Ik heb 2x 902 1x 1502 en 1x 1902 draaien. Werken als een trein, nooit gedoe mee gehad.

De 1502 hapte lucht in het begin. Na 2 weken contact opgenomen met JBL, en keurig geholpen. Inmiddels voorzien van een nieuwe kop en de problemen zijn opgelost.

Aanrader💪

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

Der e1502 lief lange Zeit als Filter an meinem 250 Liter Becken. Das Wasser war immer glasklar, der Filter nahezu unhörbar und das alles bei einem geringen Verbrauch. Mit dem passsenden Outflow war die Strömung immer sehr gut und hat auch nach langer Standzeit nicht nachgelassen. Der Filter ist hervorragend verarbeitet und lässt meiner Meinung nach keine Wünsche offen.
