Marineland magniflow c360

Just bought a Marineland magniflow c360 canister filter and the microbubbles are driving me crazy. I have had this thing apart more in four days than I thought I would have to in a year.
Bought this as an upgrade to the HOB's and regretting it already.

Anyone have any tips from experience? I have tried lubing the valve block o-rings, unhooked and reinstalled the intake hose, added another hose clamp to the intake (at the valve block).

So frustrated

Mike

Have you tried tilting it in all directions while running? It can help release trapped air that priming misses.

I did try tipping it, and gently banging it while running trying to get all air out. The bubbles come in small bursts, 5-15sec apart.
Marineland customer support has been trying to help, but so far nothing they have susseted has helped. They suggested lubing the main gasket; but I have nothing at the moment that I would consider aquarium safe. I would think the lube would be included if it was a normal thing that needs to be applied to seal the unit.

Take that thing back and get a fluval or a sunsun. Marineland stinks IMO.

If the customer support staff cant help then its exchange time.

I was thinking that. Have to contact Petsmart first about return policy especially before I unhook everything.

try adding a foam pre-filter over the strainer on the bottom of intake tube ,
also be sure the propeller is fully seated if it's not that could cause micro bubbles
marinland filters are just too loud IMO
Call the number on your instruction manual if you still encounter issues ,
once a filter is opened and used most pet stores ask you to contact the manufacturer

He already has been trouble shooting with marineland customer support. They cant figure it out either.
