Thanks for all the great emails and feedback on Flipper. We would love to add your before and after pics to our wall of fame...or just a pic of your super clean tank with Flipper on the glass :)
1) Is Flipping difficult?
Flipping is Easy once you know how, but it does require you to follow the instructions (better yet, watch our flipping demo on this website.)
Flip in areas with low water currents and near the top of the tank where you have room to flip away from your rocks.
2) What is the maximum tank thickness Flipper can be used on?
Flipper can be used on glass or acrylic tanks up to 12mm (1/2") thickness.
3) Will the metal blades rust and how long do they last?
Metal blades are made with 316 stainless steel which is highly corrosion resistent. You can leave the Flipper in your tank and the blade should last for months depending on your use.
4) Does Flipper work on bowfront tanks?
5) Is Flipper the same as a Mag-Flip?
No. Mag-Flip was made by another company using our patent license. We were not satisfied with the way that product performed so we did not renew the licensing agreement.
We spent the next 18 months perfecting Flipper with stronger magnets, stainless steel blade and a more efficient scrubbing pad....it was worth the wait!
