You are bidding on a custom made aquarium roller filter.A roller filter works by filtering water that comes into your sump (in place of a sock or filter pads) and will automatically advance a roll of filter material very slowly until clean filter material is available.  The clean filter material is the feed reel and the dirty filter part rolls up to the take up reel.
It was designed to fit into a 10 gallon glass aquarium that you use as a sump.  It will fit even with a glass top.The space under the motor can be used as the overflow area from the aquarium which then feeds into the roller filter.There is space under and to the left of the filter for room in your sump to put additional baffles.This was designed to be very compact but yet offer max features.There is a custom controller that has two optical sensors, one that detects when the filter is dirty and water reaches a designated level (you can determine this) and it will very slowly turn the filter material until the level drops back down again.  The other sensor will turn off the motor if the level is too high (again you can determine this level) in the case of a situation that fills the sump.There is a manual override button that can turn the filter motor in case you need.There is a also a telephone line port that has a 5v output that you can use to interface to another controller that tells if the filter is rolling.As shown in the photos the feed and take up rollers separate to make changing filter material easy.Included are two 100 yard rolls of 200 micron filter material which on a small tank could last many months maybe years!
Dimensions with motor and full roll of filter material:10-3/4" wide x 8-1/4" deep x 12" high.Without motor the depth is 6-9/16".
Clearance from bottom to motor is 7-3/4".I have enclosed pictures showing it in my custom 10 gallon sump for reference.
If you are interested in the sump in addition to the roller filter see my other listing where I am selling both as...
