PRODUCT FEATURES Thanks to the experience gained in more than half a century in the fluid dynamics, in our product we propose the following solutions: Modular design The modular system allows you to compose your own system using a single drilling diameter in the glass, making it possible to swap the charge and discharge at any time. In fact, our system uses the same diameter of pass-glass for both systems making it possible to subsequently add a further charge or drain without being bound by the original arrangement. Withou glue All components are assembled by means of threaded connectors and seals and can be completely disassembled to facilitate maintenance and avoid losses due to defective bonding. Moreover, having the thread made on the screwed components inside the tank, it will be possible to remove the system without having to move the aquarium if it is mounted close to a wall. Triple O-ring sealing Our system uses a sealing system made with 3 silicone O-ring gaskets. This solution allows waterproof sealing without the need to tighten the components, avoiding dangerous forces on the glass plate. Disassembly can be done by hand at any time and you will not have to use teflon tape or silicone paste to reassemble the system. Charge technology The charge system is equipped with nozzle on spherical support with adjustable attack which can be rotated and bent at will. The threaded connection is compatible with commercial nozzles and can be replaced with any fitting with thread 1/2" or 3/4” (according to size). Drain technology The drain system is equipped with removable grid to facilitate cleaning operations. The increased size of the grid help the flow of water ensuring flow rate and silent running. The grille is machined with side openings to prevent it from being completely occluded from flat objects. Easy and thorough maintenance Our product can be disassembled virtually in every single component. The generous thicknesses of the materials used ensure excellent resistance during all maintenance, while small component reduction facilitates cleaning and replacement of individual worn components.


During product development, we start from what the aquarist needs. The construction choices we use always have a practical logic and often depart from a direct need, which could not be fully satisfied by products currently available on the market.

Accessories T-40

You can also purchase some accessories to facilitate the use and installation of the product.


This flexible hose is our proposal to make a drain system as silent as possible. The soft material

with which it is made reduces noise and vibrations while the hard plastic spiral allows reallocation of

sweet curves without the hose becoming shrinking.
