    Very interesting... I had no idea the impeller could turn in either direction when you turn it on and off.

    According to Stewart, since this is magnetically driven without a starter capacitor, it can go either way. As a rule of thumb - when the discharge tube is straight up from the center of the propeller, the motor probably doesn't have a starter cap and will run in either direction. If the discharge tube is off to the side of the propeller, there is probably a starter cap and the motor will only run in one direction.

    Sounds pretty interesting. Might have to look into that for the new powerheads. Just bought aquamanns lights so the misses wont let me spend anymore cash on the tank for atleast a week. lol
