I said it already. We are discussing Japanese culture and tradition. I firmly believe that if you buy an ADA canister you are not getting ripped off.
Yes, the thing is crazy expensive.
Yes, it is a metal bucket like these small size bathroom trash cans, stanless steel, $30 at the Container Store.
Yes, ADA copied Eheim.
Yes, I don't believe they have a precise calculation that matches exactly SuperJet Whatever with certain tanks
Yes, the ADA filters seem to barely move water
But what you are buying is the confidence that every little detail is as perfect as it can be made to be. And that the entire system will not only work well if you understand its basic principles but will also look like a million bucks every second of it.
In a way we are talking about putting a value on trust. Paying more for something you believe was made well. Belief, trust, perception... We are used to be tricked a little too often. And here comes the Spanish gang ready to make a buck out of of all this. And we jump all over the cheap prices. That's how I see it.
