Filter Pump Maintenance
Once a week (or sooner if you notice reduced waterflow) check the filter pump impeller isn't obstructed with aquarium waste and that it can spin freely. Pipework should be checked once a month to ensure that there are no blockages restricting waterflow and it's also good policy to check the condition of the filter media pads on a regular basis as these can sometimes become clogged over time. Rinse Black sponges in a little aquarium water and replace Polymer Wool Pads as necessary, usually every 4 to 6 weeks.
Replacing the Filter Pump
Aqua One's filter pumps are really easy to replace. First of all disconnect the power supply, then remove the suction cups that hold the pump in place and take the pump out of your aquarium. If you are checking the impeller then clip off the impeller cover and check that aquarium debris isn't impeding the impeller. The filter pump impeller is magnetic and should also be reasonably easy to remove. Simply reverse the process to reinstall.
