.....I can rent one locally for $1 per day. Plus the $12 for the diatom
BUT, I was looking at a Magnum diatom filter and it seems like the cost of
nearly $100 or so is mostly for the plastic. A replacement filter might run
from $12 locally to $7 over the web.
The Petsmart online store sells Vortex Diatom filters for about $63.00.
If you go to a local (swimming) pool supply dealer, you can buy pure diatom
powder for a fraction the cost of any aquarium supply place. I just picked
up a 10 lb. bag for about $7.00....You can buy it in 25 or 50 lb. bags also.
