HI Gang,

I noticed my Whisper 40 (4 years old) stopped pumping. It is one of two of the same filter in this tank. I took it all apart and cleaned it.

I've filled the filter housing as far as possible to help with priming. The impeller spins but there isn't enough power to get the water through the intake tube. All the connections on the tube are under the water level.

Can you suggest any other troubleshooting ideas?

Thanks, Ron

I would clean the impeller with both a qtip and also pipe cleaners through the center.
