I saw that and still cant actually belive it but I'm not disputing it is possible as he only every uses the 45psi sponges but 3 years is a long timeIn a recent Live Chat, George Farmer admitted that while he rinsed the prefilter on his EA1200 at least weekly, he had still not opened the body of the Oase 600 ... in 3 years
Well I must admit to opening my Eheims only every 3-6 or 6-12 months - and that’s with no prefilterI saw that and still cant actually belive it but I'm not disputing it is possible as he only every uses the 45psi sponges but 3 years is a long time
Alto- iv'e never used ehiem myself heard the quality isn't what it used to be, but guess everything is going that way now more money and less well built...
the only other filter i would consider as to the Oase 350 is the EhiemProffesional 4+ but that would mean an inline heater i guess... still a lot of time to decide but i just don't know what is going to be better iv'e had fluval's in the past and JBL cristalprofi but never anything else the main thing that drew me to the Oase was the heater in the filter housing. and of course George Farmers words about them.. but after reading the thread on the Oase im just unsure i just want a reliable filter with a good turnover looking to spend around £200 mark but am interested in any other options anyone has budget could wiggle slightly..
Thanks again everyone
