i bought my bio wheel, and it worked good for about a month and then the wheel quit spinning. Put a new filter in, and it started to work again. after a week, it was back to not spinning. pulled whole unit out of tank, and completely cleaned out the whole thing. Worked good for about a week again. Then did it again with same results. Now it stops for long periods of time, and water is blocked and pours out over the top of the filter. i bought this filter based on recommendation from pet shop saying it was the best. My friend went to the same pet shop a week later and talked to a different guy who said that bio wheels are the worst filter out there because they always have to warranty parts on them. I am taking this worthless thing back today. I have researched this well, and have found this to be a highly common problem with these. Don't buy one. You are better off getting an Aqua Tech from Walmart that takes the same filter cartridges anyways, but if you buy them from Walmart they are half the price.
