Works Great for smaller tanks
Works great for smaller tanks 10 and 20 gallon. Bigger tanks not so much just better to use RO water and add minerals for Large tanks
Softens water for 10 gallon tank
I bought three of these pillows to alternate every two days before my weekly water changes. I’ve read about peat moss but I don’t like the tannins. I use one pouch for my 10 gallon Betta tank. Before the pillow, my water hardness was at 16 dGH. With the pillow, my water hardness is at 9 dGH (yay!). The hard part is remembering to place them in their recharging solution when not in use, so I’ll have to order a replacement.
Massive Ph Drop!!
Worked to soften hard water very well, but at the cost of acidifying all of my tank water! Not worth it; hardness wasn’t hurting my fish but the low ph definitely is.
Water softener pillow
API water softener pillows worked as advertised. Multiple pillows needed for large tanks.
No change after 3 recharges
I purchased two of these and followed the directions. To try this out I only opened one, but have since recharged it twice and it has made zero difference in my 55gal. tank.
Awesome Water Softener
My aquarium water was very hard. I used the pillow for an hour and the water tested very soft. I took the pillow out and air dried it for the next time.
This was really easy to use and quickly brought my aquarium GH levels to the appropriate level.
My water was very hard when I tested rushed ordered this in hopes it will work and it did just as it said it would definitely order again
Awesome product. A++++++++++++++
Highly recommend. Dropped the hardness of my tank pretty quickly.
Water softener pillow
This works great. I have very hard water always reading at 180, put this in my filter and within 12 hours, my GH was down to 60.
