Whisper Power Filter by aquabrad from Fresno, CA12/25/2012
The Whisper Power Filter is a good product but don't expect to take it out of the box and plug it in. Check the "O" ring where the motor assembly comes together. I am 3 for my last 3 in having the filter leak after setting it up because of this issue. And the "O" ring appears to have a defect in it (and may well have one) but if you're careful putting it all together it will work without leaking. I would purchase the Top Fin equivalent when I can find it for a cheaper price.
