The AquaClear 30 Powerhead Aquarium Water Pump 175 GPH, when attached to undergravel filters, generates powerful water circulation to ensure highly effective filtration. This AquaClear water pump also provides aeration to your aquarium. This AquaClear 30 Powerhead features reverse operation which generates both forward and reverse flow, keeping the substrate cleaner by forcing debris to the top.
I recently purchased an AquaClear 30 and the new Fluval C2 filters. The Fluval C Series filters are revised/updated AquaClears.

Media maintenance should follow individual packaging instructions of the separate media. If the filter is left unattended for too long, the filter materials become clogged with debris. In extreme cases, the filter basket may be forced up from the filter case due to the pump pressure. This is an indication that the efficiency of the filtration is very low and that the media requires immediate rinsing or replacement.To clean the unit, unplug the filter. Remove cover. Remove filter basket and dump water remaining in case. Rinse collected debris from filter case, flow diverter, impeller and impeller well in clean lukewarm water. Soap or detergents are NOT recommended for filter maintenance.Every three months the motor should be removed from the case and thoroughly cleaned.
