the suction cup on my Aquaeon Powerhead continues to fail. I pull up on the handle, push it on the glass, push down on handle to lock it in/on, it holds for a few mins then it lets loose. I tried cleaning the suction cup, cleaning the glass. Am I able to adjust the handle pressure or something?

I have the same powerhead. Try emailing aqueon maybe they will.send you new ones. You can also try cleaning the area like you did then push the suction cup kind of hard onto the glass then push the lever thing. Mine was falling also but its on there good now. They stick very well at first

Thanks, Phillrodrigo30, I wasnt pushing it hard enough against the glass. I was just placing it against and pushing the lever down. Now its locked on, been a couple of hours.

Try throwing the suction cup in a pot of boiling water for 30 seconds or so. This usually makes them a little bit more pliable.
