Take Care of Your Hoses Your hoses and tubes can get clogged with debris over time so be sure to clean them out at least 3 times a year. Also make sure your hoses are not kinked, bent or looping. As you know this beast of a canister filter moves a lot of water and using the lubricant helps prevent any leaks. Use Filter Media Bags If you intend to use any media that is made up of small granular particles, be sure to place it in a bag. Loose bits can get trapped in the pump and stop your impeller from working. Replace Old Impellers At some point, the impeller will need to be replaced.
