View Full Version : Received Order - Great Service

I just receive my order and I must say it was faster than expected. Everything safely packaged and just what I ordered. I did have a question about the filter I ordered though.

I order the standard replacement set. I was wondering when replacing the filter do I have to do anything to the housing. For example, should I dump the water that is currently in there or keep it and do I need to do any cleaning to the system. I have the Ocean Reef +1.

I would dump the water in the housings as waste. Some people like to disinfect and clean the housings everytime they change filters but I dont think it is necessary unless the housings are dirty of filmy. My general rule is old filters out new ones in make a gallon of throwaway water and your in business.

Thanks, Jim. I'll go ahead and swap the filter today.
