Need an Aquaclear Expert
I have 2 Aquaclear 30s. The water in the filter box appears to be bypassing the sponge and media and returning to the tank unfiltered. It gets sucked by the intake tube and into the left side impeller chamber then that chamber fills to the top of the basket on the right side, spills over the top of the basket and falls back into the tank via the spillway. Some water might be making its way thru the sponge but most just bypasses its way back into the tank. Could this be right? I have a 110 running on another tank and the water in the left chamber comes just to the top of the basket but dosen't spill over into the right side. The 110 has holes in the side of the basket that look like they let water go from right to left without being forced under and thru the sponge. How the hell can this be efficent? Does anyone he know exactly how these filters work?
