Sounds like a ground fault or polarity issue with the connection. Check your wiring with the circuit breaker 'Off" and verify it's "off" using an electrician's screwdriver. This will also tell you when you put the power "on" whether the polarity is correct.. red is positive, black is negative, and as always, Green wire is ground.

I've had a oase clear water filter for three years now with no problems. I was cleaning it at the weekend I notice water leaking out off the function switch I would appreciate any advice thanks Dave

It should you did seat down correctly, take out the filter and put back in. You might want to inspect the rubber around the filter for wear.

Oase pondovac not working

I find that it sucks a lot more water if it's getting a little air from that valve thingy on the handle. Be sure it's tight and closed. I guess you could filter out the water through some media etc. using the hose attachent..into a large bucket with matting etc. and then set it up to go back to the pond. I'd go heavy on the matting though to be sure you're not just putting dirty bottom-of-the-pond water back in. I only use mine about once a month in the summer (bottom drain takes care of most waste), but am using it several times a week right now to get every speck before winter sets in. I don't do water changes once the filters are shut down, and I'm not feeding. I find the water stays clear and the water parameters upon testing are fine....all through winter.

Hi got oase filter and everything just stopped working including the pump please could you give me some advice on what it could be thank you

It could be no power, bad wires, bad controller, bad switch, bad pump. You may have something as simple as a tripped Ground Fault Circuit Interupter (GFCI) breaker or receptacle. That is what I would check first. If you reset it and it trips as soon as you turn on the pump switch then you have a ground fault in the pump. I hope this helps.

Pump runs and is fine on the output until i connect back to filter and there is not enough flow

Your filter may be clogged if not check for clogs in the fittings running between them. You will have some loss of pressure pressurizing the filter unit but it should not be a drastic loss.

OASE fountain pump fluctuates height every other day.

No there is not 2 speeds. That model is asychronous so power fluctuations can affect pumping. How clean is the plug end and how dry is the receptacle? Is there is chance a extension cord is used [code violation almost everywhere] in this hookup? Perhaps it's just debris circulation and restricting intake?

Aerate a pond

I live near Memphis TN so don't have that pesky "frozen water" problem. However, I do aerate my 2,500 gal goldfish pond with a Oase Biosys Skimmer (free standing/ floating skimmer) which is powered by a Laguna fountain pump. I attached a small pipe on the discharge end of the pump & set the pump so that this pipe is a few inches below the water's surface. The discharge provides a small fountain effect that keeps the surface moving while aerating the water. The skimmer keeps the leaves / debris off the top of the water the pump keeps the water moving...and moving water will not freeze. Hope this helps
