Rated 5 out of 5 by ZeekoFishGuy Filter works great
I replaced a 2 year old filter that I inadvertantly left outside over the winter and it froze. The new one I purchased works great! In only a week, I can see that the water is clearer than it ever was last year. It is rated for the same size (around 1200 gallons). If my other filter would not have gone out on me I never would have known how much better my pond could be cleaned by using a different filter. I had to send the first one back because it leaked, but the people at Foster and Smith promptly sent me a new one and emailed me the prepaid labels to send the defective one back. It seems like the latches that hold the top on might be a little flimsy. There was a broken hinge on one when the filter arrived, but they include 2 spares, so I used 1 of those.

Rated 4 out of 5 by eechigo So far so good
So far so good, it has not been that long since hook up. My one pet peeve is that it is incredibly hard to get the corrugated tubing made for these filter systems to stop leaking. I ended up cutting off a total of about 1 foot of hose as I attempted to tighten clamp, it was too loose and leaked and when tightened, it would cut into hose and then leak due to that. Very frustrating but eventually I managed to get both hoses to stop leaking. I also have a 10,000 gallon filter system so it's hard to tell who is doing the better job. My pond is 1500 gallon and I'm sure it's overkill with the filter system but I have a koi/tropical fish pond and the tropical fish are doing great with the added filter system.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jerseyman Replacement of an OLD FILTER !!
I had a Tetra filter that looked like a big rain barrel and it's seen better days. It was about 10 years old and I tried to replace it but it was discontinued. So I started my search to find a replacement. I went thru all the websites looking for info and finally selected this Little Giant Filter. I know the Little Giant name and it's a good product. Although I never knew they made filters. I installed it yesterday after receiving it about a month ago. New piping and fittings. I had to use a mile of Teflon tape to attach the 1 inch piping to the In & Out ports to stop the leaks. After that I turned it on and it worked. Now I have to read up or look on You Tube to find out how to clean the filter when the time comes. But for now ...Everything is OKKKKKKKKKKK !!!
