Magnetic Impeller Assembly with Bushing, O-Ring, and Bushing Tool

The magnetic impeller assembly is a crucial component of the canister filter. Over time, it may wear out or become clogged with debris. The FX6 Filter Service Kit includes a new impeller assembly, along with the necessary bushing, O-ring, and bushing tool for easy installation.

Motor Seal Ring

The motor seal ring helps to create a watertight seal between the motor and the canister filter. If this seal becomes damaged or worn, it can lead to leaks and decreased filter performance. The FX6 Filter Service Kit includes a new motor seal ring to ensure a tight seal and prevent any potential issues.

Top Cover Click-Fit O-Rings

The top cover click-fit O-rings are essential for maintaining a secure and leak-free connection between the canister filter and the top cover. Over time, these O-rings may become worn or damaged, compromising the filter’s efficiency. The FX6 Filter Service Kit includes four new top cover click-fit O-rings to ensure a tight seal and prevent any potential leaks.

O-Ring Filter Lid

The O-ring filter lid is responsible for creating a watertight seal between the filter lid and the canister. If this O-ring becomes worn or damaged, it can lead to leaks and decreased filter performance. The FX6 Filter Service Kit includes a new O-ring filter lid to ensure a tight seal and prevent any potential issues.
