Question

360 leaking

I read the one question I found on your site but it left me we additional questions. I drained cleaned the bottom filter and replaced the top filter and put in a charcoal bag. However this time it now leaks from one of the clamps, bad. Will an o ring kit fix? whats the likely hood of it fixing it? What is silicon grease? My filter is about 2 years old is it covered under warranty? Why did this happen?

answer 1
It could be leaking due to the large o ring getting thinner, a clogged valve block housing, damaged o rings on the underside of the valve block, or simply a faulty valve block. Silicon lubricant is a clear gel-like substance that is commonly used to keep o rings in good shape, prevent dry rotting, etc. It is available through retail pet stores. Yes, a new o ring may fix the problem. We would also recommend replacing the small o rings on the two nozzels on the underside of the valve block. Also, clean out all of the nozzled with a q-tip and allow the valve block to soak in a distilled white vinegar solution for about 20 - 30 minutes. Mix the vinegar half and half with hot water.

Your filter has a 3 year warranty. Contact our support staff at 1-800-322-1266 for replacement parts; be prepared to fax or email in your receipt.

For my turtle tank I cut the bottom of the diffuser off and added a small section of clear tubing so it was extended to the bottom of the aquarium and that was worked great for me.

I just phoned customer service with the same question. I was told that they DO NOT have an extension for the outflow pump. Our tank is used for turtles also, but I have the water level all the way up to the outflow pump so that the pump can function. As a consequence, the turtles are basking while still covered in water. I don't know any other way around this at the moment. I plan to go to the hardware store to see if the plumbing department has something that can be used as an extension.

Question

Is this filter ok?

Hi,

I have a 32 or 33 GL tank and my water has never been crystal clear. Done many things to improve. A friend suggested your product. I bought the C-160. Is this enough to handle my tank?

So far it's very quiet compared to power filters.

Thanks

I would say for your needs that it would be okay for a freshwater tank, but would strongly suggest purchasing the 220 over the 160. 30 gallons is what the canister is rated at and it never hurts to overfilter. Unless the 160 is on sale I would spend the couple extra dollars on the 220.

Question

C-160 not pumping as forcefully as when it was new?

My C-160 canister used to pump so strongly that there was a good current around the tank. Now water isn't coming out of the inlet very fast or much. The current has gone way down. I am currently not using a scrubber pad and, due to medicating, am not using even charcoal. Is it my impeller? I noticed that the impeller comes apart into a couple of pieces now. But i want to say that the filter is still working and filtering the water enough to support the tank.

I've had a similar problem to this in the past. It turned out that my problem was due to sludge buildup in the tubes and hose. It takes surprisingly little clinging to the walls of the tubing to dramatically affect the flow. Hope this helps.

Although it could be an impeller issue, you will also want to check the water level in your aquarium (it should be flush with the lower edge of the top trim) as well as your seals and gaskets. Depending on how long you have had your C-160, replacing your impeller may not be a bad idea.

The Canister C-360 filter is rated for aquariums up to 100 gallons. It sounds like you may have 25-30 gallons in your aquarium. This filter does a great job filtering, however a lot of this is going to depend on the wasteload of your turtle (size of the turtle based on gallon capacity). With this amount of water, it is still necessary to do regular water changes. Perhaps the filter is getting clogged or you are getting a reduced flow because of the amount of high protein-based debris in your aquarium. On the C-360, please also make sure you are running it with 3 carbon bags.

Question

My brand new 530 canister is making the LOUDEST rattleing noise....why?

The first time I started my new 530, it started to rattle very loudly and I can't get it to stop.
I have now disassembled the canister at least 10 times but each time it restarts....RATTLE.
The magnetic propeller actually wobbles quite a bit .... it doesn't seem to be a snug fit like my old 530. I have checked and double checked all fittings and pieces to make sure they are in proper positions to no avail. Would a new porpeller solve the problem?
I have also shook and shook the canister but it doesn't help. Right now I have several towels drapped over it to quit the noise so we can watch TV at night without the bothersome rattle. Any suggestions?

It would probably be best if you called in for some troubleshooting help, but the C Series canisters may rattle for the first couple of days, while they purge air pockets. Trapped air will make the ceramic rings hit each other, causing a rattling sound. It is best to let the filter simply run for at least 3 or 4 days before trying any tricks to quiet the filter. If you wish to call in, the number is 1-800-322-1266.

We don't have anything quite large enough for that. Our largest sump would handle up to 200 gallons. You would need three fo them, along with three large pumps that could handle 700 gph at the top of the tank.

answer 2
The noise that you are hearing comes from the impeller. Your impeller is either in need of a thorough cleaning or an air pocket is causing the rattling/grinding noise that you are hearing. Please remove your impeller from its housing and clean the impeller completely. If it is very dirty, we recommend soaking the impeller in white distilled vinegar for 2-3 hours. You may also wish to replace your gaskets being that your O-ring will need to be replaced over time and may be the reason for an air leak.

Happy Cleaning,

Question

Impeller Lubrication

Bought a new C-Series 360 Canister filter two weeks ago. Came back after a week's vacation to find the filter not pumping. Took it apart and found the impeller had a lot of friction and would not rotate freely particularly with the locking ring on. Worked with it.
Added Vaseline(admittedly not a good solution) and finally got it to turn under normal operating conditions, but I'm off on a 2 week business trip and have no confidence that my fish will survive. What is a good lubricant and is it normal for friction to be so high.

No, it is normal fo there to be that much friction. That is usually caused in older systems from minerals, sand, etc.

No, that would not work very well. It would put a lot of strain on the motor, and you could "backwash" dirty water into your tank as well. To be fully effective, a filter must run 24/7.

Yes, that is actually normal for a couple of days, while it purges air. However, you can get the same effect if you did not tighten your c clamp onto the intake tube enough, or if you did not push your tubing down onto the valve block properly. Make sure you can NOT see ANY threads on the valve block nozzle. If you can, your tubing is not correct.

Make sure your water level is to the top of the tank.

Check and make sure the valve block is not upside down; we've had customers actually install it this way, and it will not prime.

How much tubing do you have; there should be no more than a 2" dip/slack in the tubing, cut excess off.

Be sure to have a minimum of 22" head, the filter cannot sit next to the tank, it must be below it.

Extending discharge hose on C-220

I would like to know if I can make my discharge hose longer than the recommendation. My goal is to build a cooler to route the hose through and coil it so during the summer months I can add ice water to keep the tank cool. I live in Hawaii and don't have AC so I am worried the tank might get too warm.

Yes, well it is a modified homemade chiller...basically by creating a coil effect on the discharge I can add ice in during the summer months to cool the tank. It isn't a permanent solution, but a lot cheaper than spending a 1400 for something that I will hardly use. Knowing the hose can go further than the recommended settings was what I wanted to know.

Yes, you can buy vinyl tubing through a Lowe's or Home Depot and extend it. I'm not sure about the cooler part though, as I would need more info to know if this filter could handle something like that. Sounds like you want to design a chiller. Chillers are what most saltwater people put on their tanks. You might check out some of the saltwater forums for ideas, such as www.reefcentral.com.

I continue to have the rattling sound. Would it help to add more ceramic rings? I am perplexed that others have been advised this rattling will go away with time, but mine continues after 3 weeks? Thank you...

It definitely sounds like trapped bubbles somewhere. If you are using an airstone, turn it off. If you have sand in the tank, instead of gravel, you want to place filter floss inside the strainer to prevent the sand from getting up inside and causing issues.
