Hello,

I am looking at buying a Vortex XL diatom filter from the US as they cost US$419 over here (alot dearer than the US$98 in the US). As your voltage is different to ours (240V) I will have to buy a step down transformer over here to step the voltage down to 115V. What I need to know is what wattage and how many amps the XL draws. I neeed to know this to select the correct transformer.

Can anybody help?

Thanks,
Dave,

Call or e-mail them : http://www.diatomfilter.com/contacts.htm

Since it's so expensive over there, have you considered HOT Magnum? I use the micron filter with diatom powder and it works wonder. I personally prefer it to Vortex because it's easier to set up and maintain.
