Create a safer environment for your fish
The Evolution Aqua Detox Dechlorinator is a quick and simple method of filtering out harmful chlorine and other impurities from tap water. It is ideal for first fill, water changes and top-ups, for both ponds and aquariums. There’s no need to wait for chlorine to “gas-off” or to use liquid treatments.
Simply fill up straight from the hosepipe via the Evolution Aqua Detox Dechlorinator. This unit simply connects to garden hose or rigid pipe work.
Connectors are included.
Hi-grade activated carbon removes chlorine, chloramine, bromine, malachite green, dyes, colours, humic acids, organics, proteins, antibiotics, hormones and ozone.

Frequently Asked Questions
How should it be installed?
The ideal is to install it vertically. This way it ensures that all water is evenly distributed. The units can be installed horizontally, but vertical mounting is best.
Is it ice proof?
No, Detox should not be left outside in winter with water in it. It is likely to crack. Instead, drain the unit and store vertically in an ice free environment.
Should it be flushed before use?
Yes, run the unit until the water is clear and free of dust and carbon particles.
What flow rate should it be at?
The ideal is four litres per minute or less. Use a measuring jug, and make sure that it takes over 15 seconds to fill one litre. Any more and it is too much.
Can I throttle it back, downstream of the unit?
No, installing a tap after the unit is the number one cause of leaks and damaged units. Detox is tested to withstand average mains water pressure, but if a tap installed after the unit, or a ball cock, pressure can build inside the unit.
Will it remove Chloramine?
Detox has been designed and tested for removing chlorine only, it will remove other impurities such as chloramine, bromine, malachite green, dyes, colours, humic acids, organics, proteins, antibiotics, hormones and ozone but the levels of removal have not been tested
What should I do when it’s not in use?
Store it vertically and allow the water to drain away. Store in the dark to prevent algae growth.
What fittings come with the Detox?
The Detox comes with hose fittings to attach your Detox to standard hosepipe.
What fittings are required to hard plumb the Detox?
To hard plumb the Detox you require a ¾" single union female threaded to plain female connector and suitable pipe, we would suggest using some PTFE tape to ensure a water tight seal.
