I have a Marineland Penguin Biowheel 200. The other day, during a pwc
, I gapped and forgot to unplug it. The impeller started making nasty noises when the water level dropped below the intake level and I unplugged it frantically. It took ages and lots of fiddling after I refilled the tank, but eventually it started up again. Not before it rattled a lot, tried to suck water and spit it about uselessly and then rattled more.
Today, I had to do another pwc
. Turned it off right away, did my pwc
and then turned it back on. Same stuff happened, but this time it started working sooner. However, the filter is now a bit noisier than usual... It has a wee bit of a rattle. It doesn't sound like the impeller... In fact, I can't pinpoint the noise, but it's there. Did I break my filter?
