Powerhead Mod

Recommended Posts

Here's a simple but effective mod for your powerheads that keep falling off because the suction cups are worn out or not strong enough.

 

1. Go to a drugstore or hardware store.

2. Buy some new bigger suction cups.

3. Cram them in the slots/holes with a screwdriver

4. Sit back and relax knowing your powerheads are secure :D

Great idea - can we get a photo-walkthrough of this one? :lol:

 

Seriously though, I'm going to pick up some of those for my maxijet. After two years, it just wont stay stuck anymore.

i found that i had to clean my cups and the glass to get the slime off, otherwise it just falls off after a few hours.

Yeah, but over time the plastic of suction cups degrades and they become stiff which leads to little or no suction ability.

I first went to a LFS looking for the suction cups, but the kid that worked there tried to sell me 2 new powerheads, said mine were "worn out".

 

Yeah, right. Total spent on the cups: $3.15
