Has anybody used this type of filter? It’s is claiming reduction of total dissolved ammonia and nitrites. It uses electrolysis to promote hydroxide ion to create a reduction reaction of the ammonium and nitrite. It is also claims to help in reducing the organic phosphates( still trying to get mine down) see the pic below

Glad you posted this,  I saw them for sale in Maidenhead Aquatics and wondered if they were any good.

What I couldn't see on the box was any mention of saltwater,  do you know if they are marine compatible?

Yes they are marine compatible. Will cover fresh or marine.

There is someone selling a 50 version that I think covers 300 Ltrs. It retails at around £90 but he is looking for £55. Only used for a week until his external unit arrived. So practically new. Haven’t run long but it appears to be a nifty piece of kit as my PO4 dropped within the first 24hrs of operation, saying that it did have plenty to play with!!

Update. Filter been running for a month and it’s a pretty good piece of kit I can report, would recommend. It has definitely helped with reduction and stability of nitrates and a small help to the phosphate reduction. The flow is adjustable so it can be low enough that it doesn’t interfere with skimmer operation. Pretty easy to clean and maintain. Runs very silent and is ideal for rear chamber of smaller tanks.
