I've been using a piece of AquaClear foam in my 510 cart for about 2 weeks now to try it out, and have to say, so far I really like it.
Most threads that talk about the aquarium filters are about the Eheim or Marineland (blue). I would like to just discuss the AquaClear in this thread. This stuff is a larger reticulated foam.
If you are using it, will you please report your findings. Off taste noticed, problems with burning, leaking, tips for cutting, using as a plug or any other issues that you think may be helpful.
I'm cutting my pieces slightly longer and wider than the cart and compressing slightly for both the 510 and 801 (which I just loaded up again this morning). I'm using menthol liquid in the 510 for 2 weeks with it, so haven't noticed an off flavor, but that could be due to the liquid masking it. So far this morning, no off flavor with the french pipe in the 801 (but again, a strong smoky flavor, so I may not be detecting it under the strong flavor).
I have not seen any change in the material, nor any evidence of melting at this point.
I'm also using battery mods, so am running these with 3.7/4.2v. Anyone using it with 5v or 6v? I am a bit concerned that this is polyurethane, and a high voltage could cause some heat issues which may release chemicals from the polyurethane. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.
Vape safely people!!
