Geoff, I really cant emphasize doing a vinegar soak monthly and powerheads and pumps. This is a shot of the impellor on my old Sen 900. I believe that carbonate crusting in the pump created a friction spot that wore thru the epoxy coating on the impellor, allowing the iron core inside to rust and force the split from expansion . It ran until it just couldnt overcome the drag. Bad thing is the exposed iron leached into the water causing a ferrous toxity that wiped out the tank :( FWIW installing the new impellor after cleaning it up real well, it worked like a champ. I no longer use i as a return pump because someone gave me a Mag 18 (thanks Mike and friends)
Simple maint is a good thing, and I am a firm believer in keeping a spare impellor around for critical pumps like return and or skimmers , HTH

Hi yall how is every body on this week is half gone day.

My ManBo fish didn't make it. My powerhead intake strainer fell off of my powerhead and he got too curious I am guessing.
(Manbo was my mandarine goby I had for liek over 2 years.)
