Rated 1 out of 5 by Ferdy If you like a filter that leaks, this one is for y
This is the second C 360 in two years. First one was replace because of leakage after one year. Seals were replaced but still leaked. Second one started leaking about 6 months and now if power goes out the filter pours out tank water. Not only it leaks all over the Oak hard flooring, it has discolor and flowing will have to be replaced. I have the sitting in a large tub under fish tank and this past weekend, the power went out and about 15 gallons of salt water overflowed on to hard wood floor.

Avoid. I have a CS 220 which I'm very happy with so last Black Friday my local Petsmart put the new Magniflow C220 thinking it will be just as good if not better which is on the box. But "new and improved" actually proved to be "new and made cheaply." What was once a well made filter felt and looked cheap. The CS 220 had rubber o-rings under each basket to eliminate the possibility of water flowing where water wasn't supposed to go were gone. The gasket between the filter canister and the motor head was now flat and very flimsy. The easy prime buttom, was a joke. To prime the filter via the button was like giving CPR to 500 pound person. I would go under my aquarium stand, put both hands on the button and start pushing and pushing, and pushing and pushing and nothing. At this point I'd be ina full sweat and I'm a "if I don't go to the gym everyday I will just die" kind of guy and that was ridiculous Everything about this filter was bad, and ended up replacing it. Long story short by the CS 220 if you can't then don't buy the Magniflow 220 expecting the same type of filter.

Bought this tonight and was really excited to hook it up to my L-046 Zebra pleco tank before they arrived over night. Wasn't that hard putting everything together and it was a good thing I tested the primer button on it before cutting any hoses. Won't pump, won't move. Not a very good start to this relationship. After trying to call the 800 number and learning they close before most people arrive home from work I've decided to return it tomorrow and get a FLUVAL like I have on my other tank.
