I’m looking into buying a XP3 and I would like to order some extra media but I need to know how large the baskets are so I know how much media to order. So, if you either own a Filstar or happen to know how many liters or gallons the baskets hold I would really appreciate your help.

I was also looking at the filter diagram in the Doctors Foster and Smith catalog and it shows three media compartments with, what looks to be, separators in the middle of each basket but I’m wondering if it really comes with them since none of the info says anything about them. Thanks so much.

I don't know the exact sizes of the baskets, but I was impressed with the size. In my bottom basket, I have two Large course (?) pads and two medium course pads. In the center basket I added one package of ceramic noodles. I'd guess that package is only 50% full. And I recently added filter floss to the top. I know I have at least one separator in my top basket. Since I haven't been using them in the other two, I can't recall if I took them out or they didn't come with it.

Sorry, it's not better detail, but it's getting late...

Brian.
