JBL TopClean II /Surface cleaner
- Removes coatings and foreign particles from the water surface: accessory for external filter - skimmer for aquariums 60 – 600 litres (from 35 cm height upwards).
- Place skimmer in the aquarium, connect to suction hose of the external filter (replaces existing suction pipe), regulate surface water/deep water suction with adjustment spindle.
- Universal: for hoses of 9/12 to 16/22 mm diameter. Infinitely adjustable suction capacity: surface water and deep water suction. Semi-circular shape for corner attachment.
- 2nd generation: optimised floating body – more buoyancy and adaption to the water level, stronger comb, removable adjustment spindle.
- Package contents: surface skimmer Top Clean II.
Removes scum formations:
- Infrequent water changes and overfeeding can cause a biofilm (scum) to form on the water surface of the aquarium.
- This is because the surface water is not drawn into the filter circulation by the normal suction pipe of the external filter.
- The scum formation is a whitish “skin” comprised of bacteria and fungi. It hinders the oxygen enrichment of the water.
Siphen off surface water and water from deeper levels:
- The JBL Surface skimmer effectively removes scum formations or prevents them from forming.
- With its deep water intake the skimmer can be used to replace the conventional suction pipe.
- The skimmer comb automatically adapts to a changing water surface (as when water evaporates).
Easy to install:
- Connect the JBL Surface skimmer instead of the conventional suction pipe to the external filter.
- Attach the suction chamber with suction cups to the rear corner of your aquarium.
- Using the regulating pin select the surface water suction/ deep water suction ratio.
- The adjustment spindle can be removed from the device. The JBL Surface skimmer has a stylish semi-circular shape and is suitable for hoses with 9/12 to 16/22 mm diameter.
Can you install the TopClean with a filter with more than a nominal capacity of 1500 litres per hour?
> Yes, this is quite possible. Please note that when using filters with more than a nominal capacity of 1500 litres per hour (which is approx. 800 l in practical operation) the water suction needs to be drawn into the upper and lower area (approx. 1:3). A suction into the upper part alone would lead to a sucking in of air and the raising of the floating body.
