Mike,

I don't know which country you are from and cannot advise you. You can check on the website and you can order one through mail order too.

As for me, I bought it second hand from a friend. It is very effective. I strongly recommend the turbo cleaner or any type of fractionator for any pond.

Cheers,
Patrick

Re: [mikekinrara] Turbo Cleaner no bubble [In reply to] Can't Post

have been following this interesting discussion.i have come across a number of diy sites on the internet in respect to using pvc water piping and accessories to make a skimmer.of course, it would not be as presentable as the commercially produced ones but claims are they perform .if you are interested just search for diy protein skimmers and a whole list of articles will appear.my personal observation is for non engineering people, one has to do balancing of water pressure in column as well as consider pump size as well as pvc column height on a trial and error basis.

Hi Cgad,

Hi Wan,
I understand that you installed a TC on 15/02/03. Hope your water will be crystal clear in 2 weeks time but we wish to hear from you the results of your efforts. It has to be proven time and again in order to say that TC is effective in giving us clear water, isn't it? Yin is also interested to acquire one from what he told me during his visit to my place on 16/02.

Good luck.

Regards.

Hi Lim,
Sorry I missed the pond visit to your place.Frown Heard that you all had a wonderful time. Look forward to seeing your beautiful pond myself someday.

Yes, I have installed the TC (finally) and the water clarity is beginning to look good.Cool I personally think the TC is going to help my pond maintenance a lot as it has only been 3 days and there is already a marked improvement in the water quality.

The other thing that I have done extra is to is to vacuum my settlement chamber once a week. The pond vacuum is certainly a great help and I belief with this latest aquisition my pond maintenance ensemble is now complete.Wink

Will keep u posted.
Rgds,
WAN

Good morning Wan Smile, glad to know that your latest acquisitions (not my house I hope!) or investments (I'd prefer this term Laugh) are doing wonders to your pond and koi Sly. Any chance for some pictures of your koi and filter? I hope we'll be able to visit you again when all your pond/filter problems are solved. Happy ponding!Sly
Always friendly :)

Hi K C,
I bought the TC from Lintrix. It's situated in Selayang Industrial Estate. Sorry I can't find the telephone no. now but I am sure Wan can help you.
Don't you want to wait until Wan gives you a conclusive result before you purchase one yourself?

Hi Wan,
Congratulations for getting some positive results after 3 days. Do tell us what happens after 2 weeks, ok? Can you give the telephone no. to KC if it is still with you? Thank you.

Cheers.

Hi Dr. Tan,
Looks like the only thing I need to acquire from you is the franchise to your benchmark water qualtiy.Wink
(Not to put pressure on u but it seems that everyone is using your pond as a yardstick) .
Currently on a scale of 1 to 10 (yours being a 10) I would say that I have a good 7 Smile. Thanks for your advise on the installation of the TC.
I'll try and get some pictures.

Hi Lim,
You are right about giving the TC a good run first b4 advising others to buy one. So lets see how it goes in a few days.

Rgds,
WAN

Re: [wan] Turbo Cleaner no bubble [In reply to] Can't Post

I agree totally. A turbo cleaner or some kind of fractionator is a must for any serious hobbyist.

Have you seen the stuff that comes out of the TC? It is brownish black. Like a glass of beer (don't drink it though SmileSmile).

You would never imagine how much difference it makes to the water clarity to remove this brownish thing from the pond.

Re: [k c yin] Turbo Cleaner no bubble [In reply to] Can't Post

KC,

Don't wait lah....go ahead and get one. So many people have used it with remarkable results including Dr Tan and Stuart.

Don't get me wrong. I'm not a dealer for TC. I have bought a second hand TC from a friend and left it in the store room for 3 months. This is because the TC is not a piece of equipment that can be hidden or blend in easily with the natural surrounding. For the sake of astatic reason, I decided not to use it. Until one fine day, I took it out and gave it a try. Guess what, I never put it back to the store room again.

If you are building a new pond, I would suggest that you provision some space so that you can incorporate the TC into your design...e.g. behind the waterfall, or hidden inside an empty filter chamber, etc. so that it will not look unsightly but still do a wonderful job.

Cheers,
Patrick

Re: [patrick123] Turbo Cleaner no bubble [In reply to] Can't Post

Patrick,
I m having the same problem as you. I have no idea where to hide the TC. I had incresed the water flow rate through the filter chamber as well as the volume 3 days ago and I, m happy with the result. I am considering to install the TT rather than the TC at the moment

Re: [k c yin] Turbo Cleaner no bubble [In reply to] Can't Post

KC,

Hopefully, the manufacturer of TC will realize one fine day and do a complete redesign so that the TC can look more natural....but until then, we are stuck with its ugly look. SmileSmile

As for TT, it is another good device. However, the function and usage is completely different from TC and is not meant to be a substitute for TC. TT, if install properly with the right flow rate, height, etc. can be very effective in removing nitrate. However, TC is designed to remove DOC (dissolved organic carbon), which is also what we call protein in the water.

Cheers,
Patrick

Good morning K C,

Hold on to your purchase of TC. Did you see the DIY TC diagram posted by Andy? It's great. It would have saved me RM 1,xxx had this sketch came out earlier.

I would try to DIY one by PVC pipe & fittings as suggested or by plastic container with PVC fittings. In theory it should work. The satisaction of getting clear water from our own works is greater than that from commercial TC.

Cheers.

Hi Wan,

How's your water clarity now? It's been 3 weeks since you installed your TC, if I am not mistaken.

Sparkling and crystal clear water? Pls keep us posted.

Regards.
