snapcrackler......

That's who I use.....Ginger. Have been for years.

I have the Whisper 1,2,3,C sizes, too....but don't put them on-line (just have them here in my reg store).....cause they haven't been a big seller.
We sell quite a few of the cartridges on-line, but I'll be honest ...in that most avid
hobbyists find more economical ways of supplying their own filter media/material;
so that the actual "on-line" demand for "cartridges is really rather minimal, in my
opinion.

I don't know where you would use that quantity of cartridges yourself?? Or were you figuring that folks would order them from you and that you could "make" anything ($$$) including your cost of shipping/advertising??

Just curious.

Bernie

P.S. I know that it's not a real big seller for me; a rather limited market.

Hi Bernie, I have bought filter rolls and bulk carbon and all of that lovely stuff plenty of times and still do when the need arises but I run 5 marine tanks and use whisper HOBS and skimmers (and refugiums) on them. I like the whispers for pure convenience. I do not have the time to mess with making my own filter media anymore. Dump and wipe the skimmer cup, R&R the whisper pads and walk away.

So I change 10 filters every 2 weeks = 20+ filters per month. A case of 144 is not going to last for more than 7 months or so. No I am not going to sell them and try to make anything.

OK...Just wanted to advise you of perhaps some pitfalls in the plans.

If you use that many, I'm sure it would make economical sense for you.

Take care and see you around.

Bernie
