Keep a spare pump impeller
It's both smart and inexpensive to keep a spare Peristaltic Pump impeller and this will help to head off unforeseen emergencies should your original impeller fail unexpectedly. Filter pump impellers are the only moving, serviceable part in your filter pump and work extremely hard, spinning thousands of times an hour. Wear and eventual failure are pretty much inevitable and we'd always recommend that you keep a spare to avoid unecessary downtime of your Peristaltic Pump.
Marisys 240 Maintenance
Once a week, or if the performance of your Peristaltic Pump starts to deteriorate check the filter pump impeller isn't blocked 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 likewise, do check the condition of the filter media pads on a regular basis as these can sometimes become clogged over time. Rinse Blue / Black sponges in a little aquarium water and replace Polymer Wool Pads as necessary, but at least every 3 weeks.
