    Mag 7 Repairs

    I have a Mag 7 running my skimmer. Seems like every few weeks, I'll notice that the pump is no longer working, so I take the cover off, wiggle/jiggle the impeller and it will start up again. These stoppages seem to be occuring more frequently. Would putting in a new impeller help? Any other ideas?

    its most likely getting real dirty.
    take it apart.. dip it in 1/2 vinegar - 1/2 water.
    let it sit in there for a day..
    scrub it clean with tooth brush and qtips where the brush can't clean.
    then pass it several times under freshwater inside and out.. then reassemble.
    should work like new.

    I always keep a gallon of vinegar close by for cleaning up pumps.. great stuff.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.
