Replacement Foam Pre-Filter fits 2227 and 2229
I use one of these filters on the input of all my Filstar XP canister filter/pumps. They fit very well on the tubing. They keep out much of what would otherwise end up inside the canister and thus allow much longer time periods between canister cleanings. It takes just seconds to swap these filters on the end of the input plumbing.
Also useful on the same canister pumps for tanks with smaller fry, to keep them from getting sucked into the pump system.
I just rinse them well for many reuses. They last about 5 years.
