    Filtreu Combi next experiences?

    Hello from Portugal

    I have a small 5000lts/1.100gal tank and am finally building a pond this summer with 27.000lts/5.950 gal (drawings attached that still considerd a triple chmaber with japanese matts - available in red label and other drumm models).
    Its time to choose the drum filter.
    Being in Portugal the availability is sparse (only profidrum and they are extremely expensive) so I have to look abroad but preferently in the EU due to customs tax issues..

    So I am considering the filtreau combi next for a more cost efficient solution (under 2000 inc. rinse pump, 40w Uv and 100 lts helix plus shipping bought in the Netherlands).

    Ive read here older threads from 2016-2020 of people having bad experiences with previous filtreau models but are there experiences of this specific model ?

    Bear in mind that I know "you get what you paid for" but is there is a 1200+ difference as regards other EU drumms I have been considering (red label, EPS, Ma Koi biodrum) and almost 3.000 diff as regards the profidrum CombiBio 30 so unless there is a huge quality difference...

    Your thoughts are appreciated.

    Best regards
    Joao

    Hey, Iv got the filtreau combi next 2 and been great since Aug last year. Parts seem quite low cost too, I might purchase a backup float switch and motor soon just to have at the ready. Have heard the uv can damage the seal but hoping this model has that problem fixed. Hard to tell without taking drum out.
