Hi guys,
I was checking my return pump on Friday night because I have found that the flow seemed to be slowing down. I removed the front cover and found that 4 of the impellor blades are in fact broken off. The pump is a LIFETECH AP 5800 that is pumping 12 000 l/hour. Does anyone know where I can get a new impellor from or who might stock this part?
Cheers
Shane

Hi Mekaeel,
This is on my big tank. I sent you the pics of the new tank that I got when I bought my house, and this pump was running on that tank.This is the first time that I have checked this pump, and if you can remember I posted a thread about my new DSB filter and asked about flow over the DSB.I found that the flow was starting to slow down over the DSB to the point that I was not able to see water movement.
Will I be able to pop in tomorrow night for some of that cheato?
Cheers
