Re: Quieting a noisy filter
Impeller housings have a protective lining over the magnetic part and when the lining is dissolved or damaged, it can result in a loud noise. it can happen when the power goes out suddenly or when soaked in vinegar. My power head got real noisy when the power went out. When soaking, you should use special formulated bathing soap from you fish store. It will protect your gear.
