Canister Filter Question
Okay, so my canister filter came in today and I can not get it up and going. I put the media in the 3 trays, hooked up the intake and the output, filled the canister with water, still not working. The filter isn't pulling water in. I have a prime button, but when I push it, it can't get over the hump from over the top of the filter downward to the canister. What do I need to do to make this work?
Dan, you will need to prime the filter before it will operate. there should be a way to open the intake hose, you will need to fill the intake hose completely to the top. after that, it should run fine.
Whew....okay, I had the filter primed but couldn't get the intake tube primed. I took your advice daz, and now my back and arms are dead....BUT....it's running! It actually adds a very nice flow in the tank too, looking forward to getting back on a more regular water change schedule now that I have much better filtration. :)
Eddie, are those something youve purchased seperate, or did they come with your canister? I have the RenaXP3, which comes with a similar set-up (removable cap atop the intake assembly). Ive never looked for an individual intake assembly sold seperatly, though one would assume they're out there
