I read that a few people lubed up the impeller shaft of their fluval c2's with Vaseline to make it even quieter than it already was. When I added Vaseline it got noisier and is quite annoying. What can I lube it up with that is aqua safe
I did read somewhere that Vaseline is not good to use; not that it is toxic or anything, but it does something over time. I'm sorry I can't remember the reason, but I know the advice was to use the proper filter lubricant. I think several filter manufacturers make this, I know Eheim does as I still have the tubes that came with my canisters. You can probably get this in some fish stores, or online anyway.
I've no idea if other non-aquarium products will work, or be safe.
