Rusty Aqamai?!?!

Recommended Posts

While cleaning my Aqamai KPM today I noticed a rusty colored substance in the impeller chamber.

Does it look like rust to anyone else??IMG_20190508_184406.thumb.jpg.2e34687cc308f1c3e5adaee314718e21.jpgIMG_20190508_185653.thumb.jpg.6624f7ce5435085055c8e40d84bd764d.jpgIMG_20190508_185816.thumb.jpg.7c42c2a27f89e97319dbd1fe685f0d53.jpg

How old is your aqamai? not that it matters, pumps shouldn't rust out like that.

Well the impeller looks ceramic so its not that.... so either that stainless steel shaft is rusting OR the pump isn't rusting at all but attracting particles in the tank to the magnet giving the appearance that the pump is the issue.
