Interesting tidbit. I'll have to look into that one. I have always used marineland since the early 80's, and still have my original 350 floor unit and have never replaced anything on it but two gaskets. I also use pre-filter sponges on the intakes to prolong the life cycle of the internals and prevent sand and those MTS from getting inside.
