Description

Featuring a compact design and laboratory-tested performance, the Marineland Penguin Submersible Power Head is a reliable choice for your tank. It’s easy to set up and install, so you can enjoy powerful and constant water flow right away in both freshwater and marine aquariums. The Penguin Submersible Power Head maximizes oxygenation by increasing surface agitation. You can regulate the air flow to fit your needs with the custom air valve. For increased efficiency, the air filter eliminates noise and dust while the intake strainer keeps debris from reaching the impeller. This hardworking power head operates quietly and effectively and comes in several sizes to fit every tank.

Instructions

To ensure optimum performance, we recommend the following complete maintenance procedure for the Penguin Power Head at least every 4 weeks.

  • Unplug Power Head. Slip unit up and off aquarium frame. Rotate Exhaust Outlet and gently uncouple Impeller Housing from power unit.

  • Using a clean cloth and/or Marineland Flexi-Brush, clean Magnetic Impeller, Intake Strainer and Impeller Cavity. Do not use soap. Rinse with cold water. NOTE: Magnetic Impeller Assembly is not designed to be taken apart. Attempts to do so may result in malfunction. If Magnetic Impeller Assembly does not rotate freely when clean and in good condition, a replacement should be installed.

  • Reinstall Magnetic Impeller Assembly, Impeller Housing and Lift Tube Adapter. Readjust Flow Diffuser and Air Valve as necessary.

Pre-filter Maintenance: Sponge pre-filter should be cleaned once or twice per month during regular tank maintenance. Best method is to gently squeeze sponge in a bucket or removed tank water during water changes. Never use soap or extremely hot or cold water. Replace sponge if any damage is noticed. Always insure that sponge is reinstalled all the way onto Pre-filter Core. Slots in core should be completely covered to prevent bypass around sponge.

  • Install Adjustable Diffuser: Snap rotating Flow Diffuser onto outside of power head Exhaust Outlet.

  • Install Adjustable Bracket: Slide Adjustable Bracket into channel on top of power head (fits from either side to accommodate right or left mounting).

  • Install Power Head: Locate power head over the Undergravel Lift Tube to determine the proper height. NOTE: When considering height allowance, keep in mind that Impeller Housing and Diffuser must be completely submerged to operate properly. For maximum aeration and circulation, position power head so flow slightly breaks water surface. Cut Undergravel Lift Tube as needed. Make certain Lift Tube is cut straight so that Lift Tube Adapter seals properly and power head remains level.

  • Adjust Lift Tube Adapter/Strainer: Slightly twist and slip Lift Tube Adapter down into Undergravel Lift Tube until properly seated. Adjust Adapter (pull down or push up) to ensure proper sealing at Undergravel Lift Tube. Position power cord in bracket groove.

  • Install Air Control Valve and Tube: Push Air Valve onto one end of Air Tube and press other end firmly into Venturi Collar. Press assembled Air Tube into Bracket Groove (on Adjustable Bracket only) alongside Power Cord. NOTE: If no air is desired, do not install Air Tube. Cover hole with enclosed Venturi Plug. Failure to plug hole will present a danger to fish.

  • Plug in unit: Use a standard 115-volt polarized receptacle. Do not force plug into a non-polarized receptacle. Adapters are available at your local hardware store. CAUTION: Do not allow a Marineland Power Head to operate dry at any time.

  • Optimize Flow: Pivot Exhaust Outlet from side to side and adjust Flow Diffuser. Fine tune airflow by adjusting Air Valve. Clockwise for less air, counterclockwise for more air. Set Diffuser to agitate surface of water. Never point diffuser directly up. If water evaporates and tank level drops, water could be pumped out of the aquarium.

    The included suction cup mounting option is just plain silly. Once its submerged in your fish tank you will notice that it will hang there at a undesirable angle rendering the device useless. I'm going back to the Top Fin Power head 50 which once mounted with its 4 suction cups is solid.

    The powerhead arrived on time and in good condition. I am very pleased with the product. I have attached a DIY bottle filter to help with my water clarity. It has done a great job.

    This is a great product if you have a turtle. As we know turtles are dirty and the water gets a film on the top if you dont have constant water flow. I used two of these on my 100 gallon tall, now i'm giving it 3 stars because it does raddle a bit like a filter but its kinda faint. I would also recomend a filter sponge to cover the intake to prevent it frome becoming cloged from waste as you'll see later in my pictures.

    Bought this as a replacement for one that was about four years old. Pulled the old one out, put the new one in and set the air intake. Done and now all is good. The other ones in my tank also work well.
