Timely maintenance is important to extend your motor's life. Be sure to check the condition of the main seal ring every time you do filter maintenance. If it isn't sealing correctly, appears stretched out or has other noticeable wear and tear, replace gasket immediately. Preventative maintenance is always highly recommended. With Eheim's low prices, you can buy two or three and never be without a seal.
