man, today is not a good day for me; Problem after problem. :(

I did a small water change today and noticed that my Renastar XP1 is putting out a dribble. I washed out the filter pads last weekend so i don't think that is a problem.

Could the output tube be clogged?

If could be clogged. The first thing I would check is the impeller.

Remove it and hold the magnet in one hand then spin the blades. It should spin about 75% of the way around and stop. It it just continues to spin you need another one.

Every time the output of my Filstar has dropped to nothing it was because the input was clogged with plant debris or fish :-(

One other consideration is where is the filter located in relation to the tank? On Rena filters the filter lid need to be two feet (24") below the top rim of the tank. The downward force of the water helps push it somewhat. They cannot be placed beside the tank.
