Superfish Aquaflow 100/200 filter cleaning

Blog post written by Gary | 09 March 2013 | Category: Aquarium maintenance

Our pictorial guide below takes you through the whole process of cleaning the Superfish Aquaflow aquarium filters. We hope you find it useful.


With the filter removed from the aquarium, hold the pump head and push on either side of the filter cartridge and pull away from pump head in the direction of the arrow on the cartridge.


To clean the sponge, unclip the bottom of the cartridge and remove the sponge. The sponge should only be cleaned in water taken from the aquarium. Superfish recommend the filter cartridge be replaced every month.


To gain access to the impellor, remove the bottom plate from the pump head.


Carefully remove the impellor assembly and clean with a soft brush also clean the impellor chamber. The impellor should be cleaned every 3 to 6 months. Filter should be assembled in reverse order.
