Does anyone have experience with switching pumps on this filter, I just recently bought it and was somewhat disappointed with the flow rate. Since the pump is in the tank and hooks up to just a 1/2 inch vinyl tube you think you would be able to change it out right? Any opinions, ideas, or experiences welcome.

I would think you could use a higher flow rate pump. Probably depends on what flow, and pressure rate the modules are rated for. I upgraded the impellers in my rena canister filters with no ill effects. But that is using all rena equipment together. Guess an experiment is in order.

I found a pump that is the same brand and design but just a higher flow rate, I plan on getting one and testing it out, my only worry is problems with the seemingly weak seals (I have not had problems but others have)
