Zilla 100528849 First Impressions

This thing is a beast.

It was perfectly quiet without any extra effort on my part. They can be very noisy at the impeller, which sometimes quiets in time, but may not. That water got so dirty we had to keep changing it every 2 or 3 days. The current is strong but you can adjust it with the midsection lever. I stopped the pump and I pulled it apart. I wasn't able to fill my tank fully because there was little to no surface agitation. I can hear it 3 rooms away grinding away.

Zilla 100528849 Final Thoughts

Just a tip!

I want to answer some of the complaints I've read. I'm a mechanical engineer and understand design. Once it loses its charge, you'll need to replace it. This one is working perfectly good FOR RIGHT NOW. Doing research I learned that if I add more filter media, the noise will subside. I took it apart reassemble it and it's not pumping in the water. It's easy to clean and we all know about easy.
