Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaks After Just 2 Weeks Bought the 22o canister and after 2 weeks it started leaking. Checked all the fittings and it still leaked. Changed all the seals and it still leaks. The top of the canister lid fills up with water. It has swollen the shelf, sides and door of my stand and the carpet underneath has gotten wet before I noticed it. I have been fighting leaks for a week now. Recently emailed the company. Hope to be able to update this review with a good outcome.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from VERY VERY DISAPPOINTED! Over the past ten years I has as many as 10 Marineland C-360 canisters at once in my home. Had no problems. About two years ago one started to leak. I kept changing rings and for a while it was fine. Recently I could no longer get the large black O-RING from Marinelad. I ordered their rings, they did not fit. Saturday I bought a new Magniflow 360 yesterday. Took two hours to set it up and get it to prime. This morning a million tiny bubbles are constantly coming out of it into the water. Really disappointed with this filter for over $250. Calling tomorrow. If they can't tell me how to fix this fast going to take it back and go to another company. Nothing should be this frustrating!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Filter is more of a hassle then a help.... I purchased the Magniflow 360 on 11/10/2015 and have replaced the o-rings around the pump 2 times and now the bottom of the filter housing has stress cracks around the edge and is leaking. After calling customer serves for help their solution was to ship it to them for inspection, what am I suppose to do in the mean time for a filter? Since I would have to purchase a filter to use while the Magniflow is shipped back to Marineland I might as well trash this one and buy from another company.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Keeps filling up with air I bought this 3 weeks ago and it keeps filling up with air and i have to shake it to release the air. I've done my research online concerning this issue, I've checked all the connections, even added better clamps to the hoses which slowed down the amount of air trapped but nothing has resolved my problem. Anymore suggestions?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big Bang for the buck ! I bought c-360 . Easy setup . Unit primed within seconds . Great flow . However after about 2 months , unit started to get air bound and kept discharging tiny bubbles . I contacted customer service . They were helpful in determining the problem. After relocating a clamp on the tubing, I was still having a problem . I emailed tech support several times and they never got back to me . Unit has a 3 year warranty. Since I received no further support, I had to purchase replacement parts and problem now fixed . If they had a high quality filter return tube , there be no problem with this unit .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! My filter died and I needed a new one. I chose the 220 for up to 55 gallon tank. I was having trouble with it and needed to call support and the tech support agent was friendly and knowledgeable and realized I probably forgotten the gasket in the canister. That is exactly what had happened. I fixed the issue and the pump worked as expected immediately. I am glad i purchased this filter and the support on the 800 line was excellent.

Do these still leak like the original c-360? Which would leak all the time with or without new o-ring. Has the design been improved? Thanks, Bruce

Asked by: brupa
This filter has a totally different impeller, valve block, and o ring. As long as the consumer installs the o ring properly, there are never any leaking issues. It is recommended to replace an o ring every year, as well, to avoid leaking issues, as with any other similar item. BREX

I have the Marineland c360 and when the water comes out of output diffuser it creates a lot of bubble in my fish tank. I also get a surge of water instead of a steady flow of water. How do I fix this?

Asked by: SRWeaver
Check your vinyl tubing and make sure it is traveling straight up to the top of the tank, with no more than a 2" slack in it. It cannot droop below the motorhead. Also, check the clamps on the inlet and outlet and make sure they are all the way up to the base of the top barb, and as tight as they can go, by hand. If you have an air stone in the tank, try turning it off for an hour or two and watch the filter. If there is another filter near this one, do the same as with the air stone. BREX

Have a brand new 160 set up. The rubber seal on top does not seal properly and the unit leaks.  Is there a special way that the seal goes on? Or did I just get a bad unit? 

Asked by: Matt347
You need to ensure it is not pinched when you put the motorhead back onto the filter, but other than that, no. I would recommend you call our Care Team to talk to them, and order a new o ring, under warranty. BREX

The canister motor stop working, model 220 do you sale that part along? And the price please

Asked by: Frankmongo
Sorry to hear that, but no, the motor is not available separately. It does have a 3 year warranty on it, however, so if it is within the warranty period, you would just need to email us your receipt, lot code and information. The email is BREX

What is the diameter tubing used on all your canister filters?

Asked by: scott l
That varies. The 160 and 220 use 5/8" ID. The 360 used 3/4" ID and the 530 uses 1". BREX

When I first purchased the canister the flow was superior! The flow has decreased significantly, even with the flow vents completely opened. I clean the canister and all its parts monthly. How can I increase the water flow to it original Strength? Thanks!

Asked by: opera4adam
Make sure the tubing (all of it) and the valve block ports are not blocked or dirty. Soak the impeller in white vinegar. Clean out the motorhead where the impeller sits with vinegar as well, and a q tip. BREX
