Marineland Penguin Powerhead 1140 Information




An aquarium's pump is like the heart of the aquarium. The pump moves water from one place to the other within your aquatic environment.

This is a big deal because the aquarium water is the lifeblood of your system. Simply put, dirty or dead water equals dead fish and plants. It's as simple as that.

Dead water means no oxygen or low oxygen in the water. What a pump does is: it moves the water from one part of the aquarium where it gets air and moves this oxygenated water evenly across the aquarium environment, so all the organisms within the aquarium get the much needed air. If we're going to extend the logic earlier regarding the health of the water and your aquarium's health, dead pump equals dead aquarium.

Pumps are the heart of your aquarium. Just like the heart that moves blood from parts of the body that needs oxygen; it moves the blood to the lungs where it gets filled up with oxygen then moves it back to the rest of the body so that they can receive oxygen; the pump works the same way with your water.

Pumps are very complicated pieces of equipment. As years go by they are beginning to become miniaturized, but don't let their little size fool you. There is a lot of science and mechanical engineering going on within that small plastic or metal casing.

One particular piece in a pump is the impeller. Impellers are particularly crucial because they provide the pumping mechanism for your pump. They come in many different types. They're either mixed flow, radial or axial. While the impeller is an important piece of equipment, you should not neglect this assembly and always be in the lookout of if your pump is beginning to slow down. If your pump is beginning to conk out, it might be time for you to replace the impeller.

Pumps used to be very expensive, precisely for the reason that you had to replace the whole pump when a strategic piece like the impeller gives out. Thankfully, there are pumps that have collapsible and replaceable parts like the Penguin 1140. In this case, you can take out the assembly for the impeller and replace it with a replacement impeller assembly.

The Penguin 1140 Powerhead pump accommodates replacement parts from Marineland Magnetic. If you have a Penguin 1140 Powerhead and you need to replace it, you can just buy the Marineland Magnetic impeller Assembly for Marineland Penguin Powerhead 1140 from Pet Store and just replace the assembly, and your aquarium is back to normal. No messy disassembly, no expensive replacement of the whole pump system; just pop put the old impeller and plug in your Marineland Penguin Powerhead 1140 and you're back in business. Check it out today.
