Where to Buy

Achieve Cleaner, Clearer Water with Less Maintenance.

Remove the hassle of changing your filter sock every few days. The AF-1 completely replaces the need for filter socks, saving you both time and money. A clogged filter sock will trap decaying food and waste in the water column, wreaking havoc on your water quality if not changed frequently. With its automatically advancing filter fleece, the AF-1 effortlessly removes waste from your water column before it has time to break down. The result is cleaner, clearer water with less effort on your part.

How Does it Work?

The AF-1 is fed water directly into its internal chamber via a 1.5" inlet. The water is then filtered through the exposed fleece. As the fleece begins to clog with detritus, uneaten food, and organic waste, the water will rise within the Af-1's chamber until it reaches the water level switch, which then triggers the AF-1's motor to wind the filter roll to a new, fresh piece.
