How big is the hole in this filter? Also does the hole go all the way through or is the opposite end closed in?
Answer by ChewyNov 19, 2017
The hole in this filter is approximately 1 inch and does go all the way through to the opposite end.

is this for a KOI BACKYARD pond? i have a filter on this currently and it looks similar but I can't tell how big this one is...
Answer by ChewyOct 11, 2017
It measures 5 3/4 inches in length and 4 inches in diameter and is idea for ponds and water gardens.

Can this just be cleaned as reused?
Answer by ChewyAug 31, 2018
It is recommended to change this filter regularly for optimum results. Reusing filters is not recommended as it can slow down filtration.

Will this work on an aquaclear 110 intake tube?
Answer by ChewySep 04, 2019
This replacement foam measures 6" length by 4" diameter with a 1" diameter hole in center and is for sue with the Tetra Water Garden Pump Pre-Filter.

Works great!

These are coarse, hard sponges with large holes. They work great for ponds. Chewy sells them at a great price and I don't know where to get them anywhere else. Highly recommend!

Multiple uses for your Aquarium

This can be used as a sponge prefilter for you HOB or it can be used as a replacement sponge for your air driven sponge filter. Because it has about a 20 PPI porosity, it won't clog quickly like most sponge filter. I use it for both instances and it is fantastic and very inexpensive when you buy it from Chewy.

Tetra prefilter for mag drive pump

These filters work great...The whole goes all the way through unlike the one that comes with the pump.The inlet part that holds it on is caped at the end ,so nothing will get into the pump even though the hole goes all the way through the filter....I recommend these filters..they work well,and are very affordable.

Great product that fits on most pumps!

Great product! I’m currently using on 2 different pumps and only need to change them out every 4 days for a turtle pond! Definitely recommend this product. Very happy customer.

New Filter

After searching and searching, not able to locate the exact filter which was on a pump I came across this one. It works "better" than the original smaller one and the size of this replacement works much nicer. I reordered to have an extra..... It arrived quickly, and I'm very impressed with the company of how they called to make sure this was correct (being the very next day when I reordered)...... I will look at Chewy first, before seeking elsewhere..........
