Q: I have a Filstar xP (no number or letter) Looking to replace Impeller and can finc one for that model?
A: Number of baskets determines models for both the Rena and API Filstar Filters.
Rena Filstar XP API Filstar XP
XP1 = 1 basket S= 1 basket
XP2 = 2 baskets M= 2 baskets
XP3 = 3 baskets L = 3 baskets
XP4 = 4 baskets XL = 4 baskets
Q: I have an XP3 filter do you sell the rod for the impeller without the impeller?
A: This only comes with a new rotor/impeller as provided by the manufacture Mars Fishcare/API. If the manufacturer ever sells it separately we would offer it.
Q: So the 722 impeller will fit my XP Filstar2?
A: Yes. Please be advised that you will change the flow rate of your filter when you change the impeller. That is why we don't recommend going up or down in impeller size more than one step. The Filstar M should have either Filstar S or Filstar L rotor. Less flow with S rotor and more flow with L rotor.
Q: just got this new API Filstar S Motor Replacement & O-Rings Fits API & Rena Filstar 1 #24, and impeller cover.
what other part i need to get this running properly beside the filstar L rotor impeller (722Q)
A: When you purchase a motor you generally use all the parts from the old motor in the new motor. In your situation you are also mixing parts from two different filters, XP1 (S) and XP3 (L). This might work fine or you or you could end up with water flow too strong for the tank.
Below is a list of parts that go in the motor:
Rotor Impeller (includes shaft and bearing)
Impeller Cover bearing
Q: HI, I have the filstar xp3. It has reduced output and there are no clogs or bends anywhere. Does this part always resolve that problem???
A: Depends on the age. If it is more than 4 years old it could be the problem. The magnet gets weaker with age. But their are many causes for reduced. Visit our blog to find out more.
