Interzoo 2018: Forwater introduces its own osmosis filters for the first time
This article is also available in: italian
Seeing Francois at Interzoo has a very particular flavor to me. For those of you who don’t know, together with Francois, known professionally as Decasei, we started as hobbyists and then as moderators to be present on the Italian aquarist scene in the early ’00s. Back then we both were moderators of one of the biggest Italian boards. And back then as well Francois was a man of few words, who preferred actions over words. History brought Francois to found Forwater and to be one of the leading experts in osmosis filters, at least regarding aquariums, in Italy.
Seeing him exhibiting at Interzoo makes me extremely happy then for his path and the passion we have shared, in some kind of way, in the last 20 years.
Forwater osmosis filters
As I wrote above, the Forwater installments are second to none, and stand out for the use of first choice and high quality constituents. Often some aquarists try to spend less in the purchase, but I can assure you that you won’t be let down by a Forwater filter.
We are dealing with a cups filter, one loaded with activated charcoal and the other one with a mesh filter. You then find the membrane and to finish another post osmosis filter loaded with Silco anti-silicate resins (read our review here). Since it’s a cups filter, it’s part of the Osmo Professional series, to stand out from the other filters of the line.
The installment above is the same as the previous, with an added pressure gauge to control the pressure.
We keep getting better with the above Osmopure Pro 8, in other words three cups in line, pressure gauge and TDS indicator (what TDS is and what its is purpose).
Above you can see a “light” version without post osmosis, which I usually discourage in favor of the installments we have seen before.
Forwater’s filters on the line
Unlike the cups filters, cheaper installments also exist on the line. The membrane and the vessel are absolutely identical, what changes is the filters, which aren’t transparent anymore and in which you only change the content (except for the post osmosis one below), less spacious, and that require the change of the whole filter.
