That's pretty bad. Perhaps something is not smooth inside the impeller magnet.

What went wrong with your aquatech's? Since they are virtually the same filter, I suspect they failed the same way?

the impeller set up is a little bit different but the shafts are even thinner
and parts are bit more harder to find as the siphon tub and impeller are 1 piece
and if you can find parts local it cost more for the part than the filter figure that one out
at least the impellers in the penguin are separate from the rest of the assembly and can be dissected and rebuilt with older parts I have laying around , but I really shouldn't have to do that to a new filter,

I see. I'll take a look at mine when I clean it.

Thanks for the info.
