Open it back up & see if you lost one of the small black rubber 'bushings' that go on either end of the impeller shaft. Or the small flat rubber gasket that goes over the output tube to the lid.
i will going to get into it today.thanks :)
well im really :oops: :oops: :oops: turns out the pleated filter cartridge was the looked good to me but i guess it wasn't.i didn't have a replacement and the lfs that carries them is an hour away one i cut out 3 pleats and the flow is only using it for a water polisher so i think it will be fine.
The micron cartridge does slow the flow (even when new/clean) much more than the standard media. When using them as a polishing only filter I don't worry about this at all.
thanks thats good to know :)
