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 and the filter start without manual priming makes the filter easy to install. 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 36 W power consumption the CristalProfi e 1902 offers substantial energy savings. The patented hose connection block with water-stop prevents water leakage when the block is disconnected from the filter. JBL CristalProfi is TÜV tested.

New compared to the model JBL CristalProfi e 1901 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 clog 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.

Das ist meiner Meinung nach der beste Außenfilter derzeit auf dem Markt ! Ich halte in einem 450 Liter Becken 11 Diskus Fische … dementsprechend ist die Wasserbelastung durch die Fütterung ziemlich hoch. Dieser Außenfilter packt das locker weg !! Ich kann diesen Außenfilter nur weiterempfehlen.

Nachdem ich einen anderen Namhaften Außenfilter benutzt habe, der schon nach kurzer Zeit den Geist aufgegeben hat, viel die Wahl sehr schnell auf den CP 1902.

Die unglaublichen 15l Filtervolumen haben mich ziemlich schnell überzeugt. Es gibt nur sehr wenige Modelle mit so einem riesigen Volumen.

In Sachen Preis Leistung war der cp1902 auch hier unschlagbar.

Das Paket beinhaltet alles was man benötigt um den Filter in Betrieb zu nehmen.

Das Design des Filters gefällt mir äußerst gut und ist somit ein kleiner Eyecatcher unter meinem Aquarium. In Sachen Haptik viel mir zunächst die etwas einfache Verarbeitung auf.

Dies steht jedoch total im Widerspruch zur Technik.

Die Leistung ist nämlich überraschend stark. Dadurch ist zu jederzeit das Wasser kristallklar.

Mein Vorgänger ist dagegen deutlich unterlegen.

Außerdem finde ich die Lösung des Ein und Auslasskopfes perfekt.

Jeder Schlauch kann individuell in eine andere Richtung gebracht werden. Das habe ich so vorher noch nie gesehen.

Alles im allem bin ich mehr als zufrieden und ich hätte mir gewünscht das mein Wahl schon von Anfang an auf diesen Filter viel.

Die Lieferung des Filters war mega schnell.

Der Filter ansich hat ein schickes Design und ist leicht in der Handhabung. Es gibt biel Zubehör welches man integrieren kann in den verschiedenen Filterkammern, sodass man seine Bedürfnisse was die Filterung betrifft gut anpassen kann. Die Leistung des Filters ist Top. Auch sehr positiv zu erwähnen ist, das der Filter Rollen hat und man das Teil nicht tragen muss.

Alles in allem kann ich den Filter besten Gewissens empfehlen. Aufjedenfall 5 Sterne Wert.

Only note: glass lillypipes etc. are pretty difficult to get with the big hoses. But I made it, and it’s worth it!👌

Un prodotto da consigliare fortemente.

Avevo bisogno di un filtro che potesse generare un filtraggio ottimale (quindi superiore) per uno dei miei Acquari del Malawi. Così ho deciso di indirizzarmi verso CPe 1902 greenline.

Montaggio chiaro e facile e con l’aiuto del pulsante di autoriempimento dei 15litri del filtro, in 5 minuti era già in funzione.

In merito appunto alla capacità filtrante è possibile caricare a propria scelta più alloggiamenti con spugne o con materiali filtranti quali cannolicchi così da avere un efficiente carica batterica utile per il filtro stesso. Sono stato anche colpito dal “prefiltro” con una spugna a granulometria grossa, così da poter trattenere subito i residui più grossi che altrimenti andrebbero ad incastrarsi tra le successive spugne (di granulometria media o fine) ed andrebbero ad intasare già il filtro riducendone appunto la portata. Questo permette appunto una manutenzione a lungo termine, andando solo a mettere le mani nel prefiltro piuttosto che nel resto dei materiali filtranti (Alla fine si sá, un filtro meno si tocca e meglio è, quindi il prefiltro è un grandissimo aiuto in merito).

Tecnicamente zero rumore, quindi abbastanza silenzioso, ed ora l’acqua è diventata ancor più cristallina di come lo era già (era appunto il mio obiettivo) con zero residui depositati sul fondo.

Essendo un prodotto nuovo, non ho ancora fatto manutenzione al filtro, ma l’input visivo è stato positivo in quanto è facilmente possibile separare l’entrata IN/OUT dal cestello e grazie alle sue rotelline poste al di sotto poterlo trascinare fuori dal suo alloggiamento ed occuparsi appunto di sostituzione/lavaggio materiali filtranti senza doversi procurare secchi vari affinché l’acqua cada vicino al mobile del filtro.

La mia esperienza ovviamente è rivolta in merito al CPe 1902 greenline, ma credo che gli altri modelli parlino anche da sè così come il mio.

Morale della favola, un ottimo filtro che merita tutte e 5 le stelle

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!

Ich lieben diesen Filter! Ehrlich gesagt, liebe ich sie alle. Denn der CP e1902 ist schon mein vierter Filter aus der Serie Cristal Profi (am vierten Aquarium ;-))

Aber warum?

Zuerst wäre da das Filtervolumen von 15 Litern! Also, da ist mächtig viel Platz für Filtermedien. Ich kenne keinen Außenfilter in der Kategorie mit vergleichbarer Größe.

Die Leistung von 1900 L/h ist ausreichend für ein 800 Liter-Aquarium bei mäßigem Besatz.

Was mir besonders gut gefällt ist der Anschluss am Filterkopf. Möchte man den beispielsweise Reinigen so kann man den Kopf ganz einfach vom Gehäuse trennen und man hat nicht gleich eine Überschwemmung. Beim wiederverschließen bitte darauf achten, dass die Dichtung richtig sitzt!

Großer Vorteil: 15 Liter plus Filtermedien sind ganz schön schwer. Umso besser, dass er Rollen hat und man ihn ganz einfach schieben kann.

Einen Stern Abzug (eigentlich einen halben) gib es, weil der Start-Pump-Knopf etwas widerspenstig ist - Wenn er aber läuft, dann läuft er. Bei meinem Diskus-Aquarium habe ich eine Standzeit von 6 Monaten. Mein ältester CP (1501) ist schon über 10 Jahre alt. Bis auf das Auswechseln einer Dichtung läuft er seither durch. Ich denke das spricht für sich.

Vielleicht kommt ja irgendwann man eine "Heizer-Version"! Ich würde mich freuen.
