Questions & Answers

What general maintenance tips do you have for C Series filters?
What is the maximum aquarium rim thickness this filter can fit on?

The maximum aquarium rim size the C2 and the C3 filter can fit on is 1″ / 2.5 cm. In the case of the C4, it is 1 1/8″ / 3.0 cm.

Why is my filter making noise?

Noise originating from the motor suggests that the impeller assembly needs to be cleaned. Unplug the filter from the power source, empty the water from the container, remove the motor and throughly clean all parts to ensure the impeller assembly is free of debris. It is also possible the impeller assembly is in need of replacement: as the only moving part in the filter that operates 24 hours/day, the impeller does eventually wear and is therefore not covered under warranty.
