An aquarium pump is truly the most important piece of equipment in the aquarium system. Think of it as the heart of your aquarium. Just like in the human heart, if it fails the whole system dies It is that crucial. Its importance comes from the fact that the pump moves aerated water from the place where it is oxygenated to the place where oxygen is needed. Conversely, it moves oxygen-poor water to an area where it can be oxygenated. It keeps your water healthy.
No oxygen equals dead aquarium. It is that simple. Considering how important the pump is, many pumps need special care in order for them to continue working properly. There are certain particles that might get into the pump and interfere with its operations. Given enough of these particles and you have a badly working pump or a pump that just breaks down. This is actually the worst case scenario. When your pump stops, it is easy to see and you can act on it quickly. What is worst is when the pump is operating at a fraction of its strength and your aquarium is slowly becoming sick because of poorly oxygenated water.
To fix this problem, you have to use a pre-filter that filters out particles so they do not interfere with your pump's operations. If you are using a Mag-Drive or Pondmaster Pump, try the Danner Small Pre-Filter for Mag-Drive/Pondmaster Pumps Models 2, 3, 5 & 7 from Pet Store
