Thanks guys for the link! I really appreciate it.

So Natalie, for next time, I don't have to fill the canister? Just hold the spray bar in a bucket below the intake and the bucket is empty as well....do I have that right?

Yea that's what I do, the intake int he tank. Empty Canister under the tank on your stand and I hold the spray bar down in to a bucket that's sitting on the ground.

Once its about full (more or less anyway lol) I plug it in let it rattle & do its thing for a few seconds.

Then kink the spraybar hose and put it in the tank...letting it loose BEFORE its in the tank can make for one VERY fast running dog and a "designer" ceiling pattern I can tell ya that much lol

Naw you shouldn't have to; unless its for reasons like medication or super hardcore algae outbreak like my 55g was remember that?
Otherwise I do mine once MAX 2x a year to clean all hoses & pipes etc that's it NOT like the weekly work for the HOB you had before

Aww, thank you so much. You have been a wonderful help to me and I am very greatful. I MIGHT have to take it apart way sooner than we thought. Still hearing the slight rattling coming from the canister when the door to my stand it open

So I have this filter up and running, but it is still noisy. I'm almost positive it is the impeller or the motor. I emailed the person I got if from and I THINK he's willing to send me a new one (but I'll believe it when it arrives at my doorstep). I tried taking the lid off and messing with the impeller, it seemed to turn smoothly. However, I could not for the life of me figure out how someone would change the impeller. How the heck do you get the housing unit off that it sits in to change it? I don't want to change it, but I want to take it apart and make sure it is sitting perfectly the way it should. Anyone know?
