Fluval U series filters provide the option of setting the flow output in 3 different positions, a key benchmark in underwater filtration. The Adjustable 3-Way Flow Control feature (U2, U3 and U4 models) lets you position the water flow output to meet your specific needs. The Top Output setting provides maximum circulation and oxygenation, the Integrated Spray Bar setting provides a gentle, even flow for planted aquariums, and the Bottom Output setting is for deepwater agitation.
Fluval® U Filters also include a convenient flip-top lid that allows quick and easy access to the filter cartridge for maintenance or replacement including Fluval’s Clean & Clear cartridge (A499). Packed with special high performance resins, Clean & Clear is proven to reduce phosphate and nitrate while preventing the spread of algae, providing you with a cleaner, clearer aquarium and healthier fish for longer intervals.
Clean & Clear can also be used in U1 filters with its specially designed foam cut out section.
In addition, Fluval® U Filters offer installation versatility: they can be installed vertically against the aquarium wall to create currents or customized flow patterns; or they can be placed horizontally in shallow water tanks or to create decorative features such as waterfalls.
