Set-Up & Assembly Guide
How the CF Canister Filter Works
UNFILTERED AQUARIUM WATER COMES INTO THE CF CANISTER VIA THE INLET/INTAKE
LINE AND PASSES BY THE U.V. STERILIZING BULB FIRST (THE CF-300 DOES NOT COME
WITH A U.V.STERILIZING BULB BUT ASSEMBLES AND FILTERS IN THE EXACT SAME
MANNER AS THE CF-400UV AND CF-5OOUV.) THE WATER MOVES DOWN THE STACK OF
VERTICAL CYLINDER CUTOUTS AND TO THE BOTTOM OF THE CF UNIT. THE WATER IS
THEN PUSHED UP THROUGH
THE FILTER COMPARTMENTS, THE BOTTOM COMPARTMENT FIRST THE MIDDLE COMPARTMENT SECOND, AND THE TOP COMPARTMENT THIRD. THE FILTERED AQUARIUM
WATER THENRETURNS FROM THE CF CANISTER AND BACK INTO THE AQUARIUM VIA
THE OUTLET/RETURNLINE.
Note: Check unit for any signs of damage. If signs of damage are
present, return to original place of purchase.
1) REMOVE CF CANISTER FILTER FROM THE AQUATOP BOX AND SET THE EXTRAS
ASIDE. FACE THE CANISTER UNIT TOWARD YOURSELF WITH THE POWER CORD
RUNNING OUT THE BACK.
2) TO REMOVE THE BARRELHEAD YOU MUST FIRST UNHINGE THE CLIPS THAT ARE IN
FRONT AND BACK OF THE UNIT. THESE TWO CLIPS ARE ATTACHED TO THE BOTTOM
OF THE UNIT. NEXT UNHINGE THE CLIPS THAT ARE LEFT TO RIGHT. THESE TWO CLIPS
ARE ATTACHED TO THE BARRELHEAD. REMOVE THE BARRELHEAD BY PULLING IT UP
VERTICALLY (BE CAREFUL OF THE U.V. STERILIZING BULB WHEN REMOVING OR
SECURING THE BARRELHEAD ON THE
CF-4OOUV & CF-500UV.)

3) REMOVE ALL FILTER COMPARTMENTS. NOTE HOW THE FILTER COMPARTMENTS
ARE STACKED TO SUPPORT THE U.V. STERILIZING BULB. THE VERTICAL CYLINDER
CUTOUTS OF THE FILTER COMPARTMENTS ARE TO BE STACKED ONE ON TOP OF
ANOTHER AND ACT AS A SHEATH FOR THE U.V. STERILIZING BULB.
4) RINSE ALL FILTRATION COMPARTMENTS AND ALL FILTRATION MEDIA: POLY-FIBER
FILTER PAD(S), SPONGE FILTER AND BIO-BALLS. IMPORTANT: GENTLY RINSE THE
CARBON UNTIL THE RUN-OFF WATER IS CLEAR. THE CARBON MAY TAKE A FEW
MINUTES TO RINSE CLEAR.
5) RINSE OUT THE BOTTOM PORTION OF THE CF UNIT
6
6) STACK THE FILTRATION COMPARTMENTS FROM THE BOTTOM UP. THE
BOTTOM/FIRST COMPARTMENT SHOULD RECEIVE THE SPONGE FILTER ON THE
BOTTOM WITH A POLY-FIBER FILTER ON TOP. THE MIDDLE/SECOND COMPARTMENT
SHOULD RECEIVE A POLY-FIBER FILTER ON THE BOTTOM WITH THE CARBON ON TOP.
THE TOP/THIRD COMPARTMENT SHOULD RECEIVE A POLY-FIBER FILTER ON THE
BOTTOM WITH BIO-BALLS OR AQUATOP’S CERAMIC RINGS ON TOP. THE TOP/THIRD
COMPARTMENT RECEIVES THE FILTER COMPARTMENT COVER.
7) THE BARRELHEAD GOES BACK ON TOP (BE CAREFUL OF THE U. V. STERILIZING
BULB). THE CLIPS ATTACHED TO THE BARRELHEAD MUST BE HINGED INTO PLACE
FIRST (GIVE A LIGHT DOWNWARD PUSH ON THE BARRELHEAD TO ENGAGE THE
BOTTOM HALF OF THE UNIT). NEXT THE CLIPS ATTACHED TO THE BOTTOM PORTION
ON THE UNIT MUST BE HINGED INTO PLACE.
(see Fig.2&3)
8) TO SECURE THE INLET AND OUTLET VALVE, YOU MUST PULL UP ON THE LEVER
LOCATED BETWEEN THE INPUT AND OUTPUT NOZZLES. NEXT INSERT THE VALVE
INTO DESIGNATED AREA ON TOP OF THE BARRELHEAD. PUSH INTO PLACE FIRMLY
AND PUSH LEVER DOWN. THE INLET AND OUTLET VALVE IS NOW OPEN AND
SECURED TO THE CANISTER FILTER.
(see Fig.4)
9) HOW TO SECURE INLET AND RETURN TUBING TO THE CF CANISTER FILTER: FIRST
SLIP THE TUBING OVER THE NOZZLES LOCATED ON TOP OF THE INLET AND OUTLET
VALVE. SLIP THE TUBING ON UNTIL IT CAN GO DOWN NO FURTHER. NEXT TURN THE
FASTENERS, LOCATED AT THE BASE OF THE NOZZLES, UNTIL THEY HAVE COVERED
THE TUBING. THE TWO FASTENERS SECURE THE TUBING BY CRIMPING THEM DOWN
ONTO THE NOZZLES FOR A WATERTIGHT EFFECT FINALLY GIVE A SLIGHT TUG ON
THE TUBING TO SEE IF THEY ARE ATTACHED WELL.
(see Fig.4)
10) NEXT ASSEMBLE THE INLET AND RETURN LINES AND HANG ON THE AQUARIUM
WALLS WHERE DESIRED. SECURE THE TWO ITEMS WITH THE SUCTION CUPS AND
CLIPS PROVIDED.THESE ITEMS ARE DISASSEMBLED IN THE WHITE BOX THAT
COMES WITH THE CF CANISTER
(see Fig.5)
11) PLACE CF CANISTER FILTER (WITH ATTACHED/SECURED TUBING) WHERE
DESIRED. CUT VINYL TUBING TO APPROPRIATE LENGTH AND ATTACH TO THE
APPROPRIATE ASSEMBLED INLET AND OUTLET FITTINGS. THE OUTPUT LINE
RUNNING FROM THE CANISTER FILTER WILL ATTACH TO THE HORIZONTALLY
MOUNTED SPRAY BAR. THE INLET LINE RUNNING FROM THE CANISTER FILTER
WILL ATTACH TO THE VERTICALLY MOUNTED INLET BAR THAT HAS THE
(see Fig.5)
12) BEFORE PLUGGING IN YOUR CF CANISTER FILTER YOU MUST FILL IT USING
THE PRIME PUMP; THE PRIME PUMP FILLS THE CANISTER FILTER AND TUBING BY
CREATING A SIPHON(GRAVITY FED). THE PRIME PUMP IS A ROUND BUTTON
LOCATED ON THE TOP OF THE BARRELHEAD. YOUR AQUARIUM MUST BE FILLED
WITH WATER TO DO THIS. WITH A FILLED AQUARIUM, COMPRESS AND DEPRESS
THE PRIME PUMP TO REMOVE AIR FROM THE CANISTER FILTER AND TO DRAW IN
WATER INTO THE CANISTER FILTER. MAKE SURE ALL INLET
FITTING CONNECTIONS ARE COMPLETELY SEALED AND AIR TIGHT IN ORDER TO
START THE SIPHON. ONCE WATER IS PRESENT IN THE FILTER AND IN THE
13) CHECK FOR LEAKS. IF THERE ARE NONE, PLUG IN THE CF CANISTER FILTER.
14) CHECK FOR LEAKS AGAIN. IF THERE ARE NONE, ENJOY THE USE OF YOUR CF
CANISTER FILTER.
MAINTENANCE
Aquatop recommends regular maintenance to keep the CF Series Canister Filter
running at maximum efficiency
° MECHANICAL FILTRATION - WHEN FILTER PADS AND/OR POLY-FIBER CONTAIN
DEBRIS, CLEAN OR REPLACE.
° CHEMICAL FILTRATION - WHEN ACTIVATED CARBON IS EXHAUSTED, REPLACE. THIS
USUALLY HAPPENS WITHIN 30-45 DAYS DEPENDING ON THE BIO-LOAD OF AN
AQUARIUM.
° BIOLOGICAL FILTRATION - WHEN CERAMIC RINGS OR BIO-BALLS BECOME LADEN
WITH DEBRIS, RINSE WITH CLEAN AQUARIUM WATER. THIS CAN SIMPLY BE DONE IN A
MEDIUM SIZED CONTAINER WITH WATER FROM THE AQUARIUM. AQUATOP DOES NOT
RECOMMEND RINSING BIOLOGICAL FILTRATION MEDIA NEITHER INSIDE THE
AQUARIUM NOR WITH TAP WATER. AQUATOP DOES NOT RECOMMEND EXPOSING
CULTURED BIOLOGICAL MEDIA TO AIR FOR PROLONGED PERIODS OF TIME. THIS CAN
KILL OFF A GREAT PERCENTAGE OF THE EXISTING BACTERIAL COLONIES.
° CLEANING THE QUARTZ SLEEVE - THIS SHOULD BE DONE AT A MINIMUM EVERY TIME
THE UV BULB IS REPLACED. PLEASE REFERENCE BULB REPLACEMENT FOR UNINSTALLING THE UV QUARTZ SLEEVE. AQUATOP RECOMMENDS SOAKING THE QUARTZ
SLEEVE IN A WATER AND VINEGAR SOLUTION TO HELP REMOVE THE HEAVY METAL AND
SALT DEPOSITS WHICH MAY BE IMPEDING THE ABILITY OF THE UV LIGHT PENETRATING
INTO THE WATER COLUMN.
BULB REPLACEMENT
Note: Never replace the UV Bulb when the unit is plugged in or has power: After
6-9 months of use, Aquatop strongly recommends replacing the U V Bulb for
maximum efficiency. Replacement UV Bulbs can be purchased at
wvvw.truaqua.com.
