    JBL Regulator M001 Gasket ring

    I recently purchased a JBL regulator m001 with solenoid V002 from a well known auction site, it came with 50x O-rings which is great but after an inspection of the regulator there's, as far as I can tell no "gasket ring" that goes on the end of the solenoid bolt that screws into the regulator...

    JBL Filter Leaking

    Hi everyone! I carried out some maintenance on my JBL e1502 filter today and after turning it back on it started to leak after about 5-10 minutes. The photo shows where the leak is coming from. I think it is the O-ring seal as it is in the places (front right and back right). Has anyone else...

    A New Optimum Dissolved CO2 Concentration?

    Hi Folks, It would appear that JBL have decided on a new optimum CO2 level in users' tanks. Instead of the 30 mg/l figure, which has been 'the norm' for a good many years, JBL seem to be rolling out their latest drop checker (DC) test sets with a new optimum of 20 mg/l. See below...

    JBL Cristalprofi 901E - filter media upgrade(?)

    So I'm currently pretty happy with my JBL 901e that i have installed on my 60p. The very low amount of noise, and decent flow seems to fit the tank quite well. However 10+ weeks into the filters life I'm still seeing some pretty high spikes in NO2, despite low feeding and 2x WC weekly with about...

    JBL Cristal Profi 1501 and External Reactors

    H Guys I have a JBL Cristal Profil e1501 in my Rio 125. I think the flow is pretty good for the most part. I have an issue with my CO2 though. I can not stand the misty lemonade look and want to replace the UP Inline Diffuser (which I find very unreliable) with an external reactor. Some...
