Tetra approached Timestrip UK Ltd to come up with a visual reminder of the recommended end of a filter’s life, which could be integrated into the filter itself. Timestrip® developed a jointly-branded indicator which could be built in to the filter itself.
The integrated Timestrip® clearly shows consumers as soon as the filter is past its recommended time of use and they can therefore replace it before the quality of their water starts to deteriorate.
In the past, aquarium owners were led simply by the colour of the water in determining filter changes, but when the water has changed colour, it is in fact already long past the time the filter should have been replaced. With the added Timestrip® in Tetra’s new filter, there’s no reason for aquarium environments to drop below optimum quality.
