How and why would you change out the impeller? I'm curious, never really gave that much thought......

You open the face were the impeller is, they make a different one that is claimed to make more bubbles. http://www.123ponds.com/16575.html?g...Fcae4AodKCoAyQ

500-900 gph. But the more air you can put through it the better it will work.

the 1800 is a bit on the low side but most any pump that can be plumbed in will work.
