new Fluval filters


I have the smaller model Fluval, the 304.  Did you register your new filter?
After I had mine for about a month I received in the mail, from Fluval, a
new impeller assembly.  It was a big improvement.  I don't know if the
problem was just with the 304, or just with my run of filters, but it might
be worth getting in touch with the company to find out if there is a
replacement for yours.
