Does anyone have any experience with a Mag Float ?

Hello,

I was looking to purchase a Mag Float magnet glass cleaner, there are several types on the markey and I'm a little confused. First, Do they work? Second, What is a reliable one that I can purchase. And finally are there any draw backs with using a magnet float. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I use them and they work wonderfully if you use them regularly. They all pretty much work the same so I would choose by size and cost more so than brand. The biggesst drawback to them is if you get too close to the substrate and manage to get sand/gravel under them they will scratch your glass. Also if you go to fast the inside half of the magnet won't keep up and you will need to reach in and replace it to the glass.

Yup they work pretty good, the brand name one actually floats but the other off brand ones usually do not float so if it comes off you have to go to the bottom of the tank to retrieve them. A worthy investment in my opinion.

Most of the ones I use have come with a piece of string attached to them. You just cut the string to the length required, that way if one side falls off, you just pull it out instead of going into the tank to retrieve it.

They work very well though..just keep them clean and as mentioned watch for getting anything stuck in between the magnet and glass.
