    Hi,

    If anyone has a spare new or used (working) impeller, please let me know.

    Will consider buying the whole pump and not just the impeller as well.

    thanks
    Adrian

    Hi Adee...is your impellor magnet dark grey in colour?
    If yes, then u cant get it anymore...

    If the magnet is white in colour then u can get a replacement from Aquarium Depot...

    Reef octopus changed the whole impellor design aswell as slot on the pump itself...so if u have the old design..you will have to buy a new pump if aquarium depot cant get you the old impellor...
    Old impellor with dark grey mahnet had problems with cracking..

    Apologies, i thought i had subscribed to my own thread :whistling:

    Hi Ridwaan, no its the white one (plastic coated?)

    I'm not sure about this....the story i was told...was that if the pump was more than 2/3 years old....you had the old model.

    Hi Carlos, I did speak to Luis....and he did try to help me out. (I know he spoke to Donovan) and then called me back...was told again if the age of the pump was older, that's the one AD no longer stocked. If what Ridwaan said is true (was never asked to describe the color of the impeller magnet)....then i do have the new spec, then the age of the pump thing does not make sense.

    Anyways it sucks having to buy a whole new pump because the older one no longer has impeller spares available....and to think I have 2x BB 5000 pumps for both skimmers + WB 3000 for CARX reactor + WB HY 7000 for salt mixing...

    If its the white coated magnet then u should be sorted...
    but i definitly agree..sucks buying an expensive pump and not get impellors for it...full pumps shoulf be replaced by manufacturer imho

    So I forgot I had a pump that was broken (not the impeller though). Thats the one on the right. The impeller on the left is the one that needs replacing....both are different and have the white coating, bar the spindle color is grey on the bust impeller (the barrel part is swollen). The working impeller won't fit in the other pumps housing.
