I've used that product - the instructions say to only leave them in 24 hours - they are very fine. Can't comment on the effectiveness - the pad came out pea green so I then knew the cloudiness was algae - but at least I then knew to switch to UV.George Farmer said:Are they the JBL Symec Micro? You cut it to size and fit them in your filter. I have some but haven't used them yet.saintly said:polishing pads has just transformed the water clarity over night!
One thing I did hear from a JBL rep, they do clog quickly so need changing/removing soon after to maintain decent circulation.
I too was baffled by your poor showing last year - really didn't seem right. Where is the scoring system explained - its always seemed quite mysterious (unless perhaps one can read Japansese Aqua Journals?)George Farmer said:Re. the IAPLC I think the scoring system may explain the 'odd' rank structure, to some degree. If there's over 1000 entries, maths tells us that just one point may make the difference of a few hundred ranks. I've learnt some valuable lessons from my previous entries so am hopeful for this year.
