Make It Easy On Yourself!


I must share my husband's ingenuity with everyone on the board!

Many HOB filters, though I can't say all because I'm no expert, do not have an on/off switch. Consequently the plug must always be accessible if you need to power down the filter, which I have to do when I change out tank water and clean the filter. I found this very annoying because the plug was not easy to remove.

My helpful husband eased the frustration by purchasing an "in-line" switch (the type that rotates on/off) from our local hardware store. Then he cut one of the two wires (in accordance with the switch installation directions) of the filter power cord, clamped the switch in place on the power cord and tightened the screws.

It works great!
