I went to do my water change tonight and noticed my flow was off considerably from what it should be and was just trickeling.
I immediately checked for any leaks or any wet spots and found none.
Now, here is my problem. At the moment if I tear it apart I have no way to restart it.
I recieved this used and the primer was fairly worn and broke on me, along with this I broke the aquastop handles.
I had not ordered replacements yet since it was the holidays and figured I would just let it run.
Well, that isn't an option now. Luckily I'm still running a Penguin 333 on this tank.
If it wasn't for bills I would just order up an Eheim, but that is not an option at this point.
So Monday night (after I get paid) I'm placing an order with bigals since no one locally has the parts in stock I need.
Based of what is transpiring and that I can still feel the impeller running I have put these in my list, if there is anything you can think of please tell me.
Fluval Intake Strainer With Check Valve
Fluval Aqua Stop with Handle For 104-404
Fluval Intake Stem(104-404)
Fluval Self Primer Assembly
Big Al's Filter Floss-10 Sq.Ft.
Also, I have read both yes and no to carbon. Should I run carbon? Currently I am just running the ceramic bio, filter floss, and carbon but had intended on removing the carbon.
Any help/advice appreciated.
