Product information

Regular water change
Food, plant remains and metabolic products pollute the aquarium water. Since aquarium filters can’t completely remove these substances from the water and a large part of the waste enters the aquarium bottom, a regular partial water change (about every 2 weeks 1/3 of the water content) needs to be carried out. Always siphon off the waste from the substrate when carrying out a partial water change. After the partial water change a good water conditioner such as JBL Biotopol is vital to prepare the new tap water for fish.

Simple to use:
Hold the gravel cleaner underwater in the aquarium, shake it up and down and hold the end of the hose inside the bucket. Water will then flow into the bucket. Clean the bottom with the gravel cleaner. To finish, simply remove the gravel cleaner from the water or/and close the stopcock at the end of the hose.

How to clean the aquarium bottom properly:
Push the gravel cleaner into the aquarium substrate with twisting movements. The suction pulls the substrate and the dirt in the gravel cleaner upwards. The substrate falls back down under its own weight and only the dirt is sucked out of the aquarium. With fine sand, you can adjust the suction by lifting the gravel cleaner so that the light sand also falls back down. A sieve in the bell of the cleaner prevents fish and shrimp from being accidentally sucked in. The sieve can be removed for cleaning.
If you have a long-term substrate fertiliser under the covering gravel layer (e.g. JBL PROFLORA AQUA BASIS), do not insert the gravel cleaner far. Insert it only as deeply as the covering substrate layer is thick.

FAQ
What am I doing wrong? JBL AquaEx Set 20-45 sucks in the substrate and clogs up the sieve in just seconds.

A substrate, e.g.: Manado is a rather light substrate. If it is sucked in by the gravel cleaner, it is recommended to reduce the water current as a remedial action.

Meiner Meinung nach der beste Mulmsauger, auch bei einem feinen, sandigen Untergrund. Schmutzpartikel werden gründlich entfernt, wohingegen der Sand wieder zu Boden fällt. Der Absperrhahn ist ebenfalls sehr praktisch beim Reinigen.

Ich kann dieses Produkt jedem Aquarianer empfehlen!

Prodotto utilissimo sia per la pulizia del fondo ma anche per un cambio d’acqua sicuro ed efficace.

Inoltre è possibile notare che all’estremità del tubo è presente un rubinetto per bloccare il flusso e non ritrovarsi con punti vicino all’acquario dove l’acqua non dovrebbe cadere, rimuovendo in sicurezza anche il sifone dall’acquario stesso.

L’accessorio “Clipsafe Vario” contenuto al suo interno, permette anche un ancoraggio utile del tubo al vetro dell’acquario.

Per concludere, uno dei tanti prodotti JBL che consiglio vivamente

Super Produkt um Mulm schnell und einfach zu entfernen.

Durch die länge auch für eine feinen Sandboden bestens geeignet, dazu den Mulmsauger nicht komplett in den Sand stecken.
