Review Date: Sat October 27, 2012 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Price you paid?: $118.00 | Rating: 8 

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Price, reputation, ease of setup
Cons: intake color - product changes

Ok I just received my Rena / API XP3 - L as it is now marketed. looks to be the same quality unit as in the past but with new packaging! I knocked a point off for their accessory changes as I note below. fore warned that they have changed what is included!

Based on comments from Rena XP3 owners the unit used to come with:
4 - sponge filters
1 Spray bar
1 swivel goose neck outlet
1 flow control valve
4 intake extensions

The unit now only comes with:
2 Sponge filters
1 goose neck outlet
2 intake extensions

Take this into consideration when purchasing this unit and plan accordingly to purchase the additional pieces you need.
