Fluval C-Series issue
I have been running a Fluval C3 since May of last year. It has been a really great, reliable filter so far.
Just last week, however, I noticed that the stream that shoots over the bio-screen had gotten significantly weaker. I took the filter off and really gave it a good once over and cleaned out any gunk I could get at. A little bit of stuff had built up in the shaft that the stream runs through. Things appeared to be working as was, or even better.
Just today I noticed again the stream was really weak, barely coming out. Main outflow seems normal. After tinkering with it a bit, it's as though it might be an issue with the connection of the motor and the intake pipe. If I push the intake a little bit out of the filter it seems to pick back up. But if I push the pipe down all the way, like it was/should be, the flow gets worse.
Anyone with a C-series experienced anything similar?
