It sounds like the pump is overheating, this can be caused by a few things. First check the filter for clogging and also while you have the filter casing open take a look at your impeller. Gently turn the impeller to check if it is jammed, it's ok if there is a little resistance from the magnets but it should turn readily. If the impeller feels like it is grinding or sized you can try to gently remove it from the housing. The impeller is attached to a barrel shaft made of magnetic material that will wear down over time and is replaceable. If everything on the intake end seems normal, we check the output line for clogging or restricted flow. To detach the output line from the main unit simply unscrew the pressure bolt at the base of the output pipe. Open the valve on the output pipe and probe the pipe for clogs using a probe (a bit of wire coat hanger will serve just fine). Gently probe for a soft mass that will feel very different than the plastic. If you do feel a clog simply bend a small hook in the top of your probe and carefully snag and extract the clog.

If after these steps you fail to locate the issue most likely the issue is with the motor and the unit will need replacing.

I have a Hozelock super cascade 100 pump for a small pond. The water flow is very poor and I have cleaned the filter. I believe the pump is about 10 yrs old, is there anything I can do?

You need to put a vacuum gauge on it and see what the vacuum is. There are ways to increase the vacuum pull. You can shim the impeller closer to the volute casing, get it as close as possible without rubbing each other. If the parts are extremely worn, you may have to replace them. What about your pump seal? Is it leaking water? You could be sucking air in there, this would decrease your suction as well. Good luck.

My cascade pump 1500 is clogged and do not have instructions to take it apart

Hi Cheryl,

Before you take it apart try this.

With the pump off, attach the outlet to a garden hose and run water backwards through it. If it's being stubborn flip it on for a sec. every once in a while.

The process has worked well for me.

Best regards,

Hozelock 1313-0000 pond filter, clips won't clamp

I have exactly the same unit as you and also suffered the seized clip problem. I found this was due to debris (fine grit) getting lodged under the clip hinges ands the easiest way to get rid was to flush it out with a high pressure water jet. also you need to make sure that the large "O" ring is seated properly. The clips latch easier when a downward force is placed on the top.
Hope this helps.
