How To: Clean a Hydor Koralia Nano 900

I wont dwell on this one too much as the cleaning process is pretty much the same as > How To: Clean a Juwel Power Head with the following points regarding the Nano 900 itself…

To get at the impeller, you need to gently pull away the front half of the grille. It can be a little stiff, but you should be able to hook your finger nails under the ridge on the casing and tease it away from the rear half…

The impeller is magnetic and lifts out of the motor body…

The steel shaft can also be removed, just pull it gently as it’s seated in a rubber bush at the bottom of the hole…

Use a small bottle brush to clean any muck out of the hole and prevent the impeller jamming. Be cautious about the rubber bush in the bottom as to not damage it.

When you replace the shaft ensure you push it firmly into position, you will feel it squeeze in and touch the bottom.

Clean down all the parts, replace the impeller and the cover making sure you align the key tab on the top, and you are good to go!

My Nano 900 wasn't especially dirty, but you can do the vinegar dip if you feel it is required.
