Tip of the Day – 9/9/2013


When the the intakes of water pumps and powerheads get clogged, they will see a drastic drop-off in their flow rates and may even seize up if the gunk gets bad enough. Even if the pumps don’t fail immediately, their lifespans could be shortened as the motor has to work harder and harder to move whatever water it can. It may seem like a tedious task, but clean your pumps often so that they don’t get clogged up. Your tank will thank you for it, and you’ll likely see lower nutrients as detritus can stay suspended in the water column longer.
