Okay I have a question regarding this canister. If you have a fix please shine in because it is getting super annoying. I bought this canister brand new for $70 at petco with the sale going on now until the 24th i believe. I set it up and primed it, plug it in, and the impeller is rattling so loud, i redid the steps and now it quiet down a bit but still rattle quite loud.

The steps I did.

Connect hoses and clamps
Set inlet and outlet into tank
Prime the canister until it is filled
Plug in power
Loud impeller

Shut off valves
Remove canister
Drained water
Put everything back on
Switch on valve
Prime until filled
Impeller quiet down 20%

Rock canister back and forth and can hear air pockets releasing constantly but still loud.

Ran out of ideas,

Please shine in I have googled everything, thanks .

Call Penn Plax I suspect they will offer you replacement parts to stop rattle
