Can I dismember an AC 30/150 and save the pump?
I'm arranging to buy a couple of tanks via craigslist, and the seller is willing to throw in a filter as well. The listing mentions an AC 30, AC 150 and a Whisper 40. I haven't seen these in person, and since I'm new to the hobby and a DIY sort of guy, I've never seen any HOB filter in person.
Here's my question. Can I extract the pump from one of these suckers to use in a DIY canister? I'm willing to saw and cut, but I'm concerned that the impeller housing in these things might be too integrated into the body of the unit to allow for practical repurposement.
Thanks for the advice and ideas.
