RE: Diatomagic Filter


Yes, the Diatomagic is made by the Whisper people. And, yes, the Vortex 
recharge valve adds a similar recycle feature, but it's leaky and the 
dangling hoses on the Vortex are a major pain when moving the filter from 
tank to tank. You don't have that inconvenience with the Diatomagic. I also 
really like the System 1, but for my purposes of using it on a photo tank-- 
where I need to shut it off while shooting-- it doesn't really work out. When 
you start it back up, a bit of powder finds its way into the tank, clouding 
the water until the filter can remove it. So you've got a wait before you can 
take another photo.
