Cheap carbon pads for eheim classic
Just curious if anyone had tips for getting cheaper carbon pads for this filter. Did you buy bulk, square pads, and cut them down? Thanks.
Were it me,,I would purchase another of the coarse blue pads for the classic, and do away with the carbon altogether.
I think 1077 is being optimistic - carbon impregnated pads aren't effective very long at all. If you want to use carbon, use a fair amount (I like bagged activated carbon) and stick to regular pads or floss.
Also, if you use activated carbon, you really don't need it all the time...more like once a month or every other month or when the water is colored or smells.
