Never Change A Filter Sock Again!
Max Flow 500 GPH
The Theiling Compact Rollermat can be used in many different scenarios to fit your sumps needs. It can be hung from the side of your sump or with the included base stand securely within your sump. The design allows for water to pass through the fleece which will trap any detritus, debris, or other free-floating particles, and then it can drain down through the base of the Compact Rollermat and into the rest of your aquarium's filtration. Handling up to 500 GPH of flow through the fleece, after particles start to clog up the fleece the float sensor will automatically trigger the motor to turn the rollers and offer new fleece.
- New compact design
- Freestanding or hang-on options
- Fleece can last 3+ months between changes
- Efficient fleece material can reduce free-floating protozoa
- Quickly replaceable fleece roll
The fleece roll is 4" wide and comes in 36 foot long rolls. It has a variable depth rating and can last anywhere from one to multiple months and will ultimately depend on your tanks flow, bioload, feeding habits, water changes, etc.

When hung on the rim of the sump, how deep below the rim does the unit sit & also how high above the rim does the unit project (not including the barb - I will be fitting PVC with a threaded connector) And 4” is the absolute minimum above the top of the unit for maintenance?
Thank you for your question. The Theiling Compact Rollermat can handle a maximum flow rate of 500 gph. If you area running a turn over of 3-5 times your water volume, this rollermat will be sufficient mechanical filtration in your tank. Happy Reef Keeping.
It is not required to connect this filter to a pump. You just need to connect the drain line from the display tank to the intake of the Roller Mat. It includes a step barb fitting for 1", 1 1/4" and 1 1/2" flexible tubing. Or even connect PVC using the 1.5 thread of the intake (without the barb fitting). Happy Reef Keeping.
We recommend using a 1.5" threaded to slip union on this roller mat and then you can use a 1.5 spigot reducing bushing and barb to reduce to the size needed to fit the pump of your choice. Have a great day!
The Theiling compact roller mat will be 5.5" x 5" at the base without the red attachment. Have a great day!
It would certainly work! You would just have to set it on the side of the sump or set it in the sump and supply it with a pump!
Or must it be used only in sump.
