Check one thing with FM10000 users. Especially those using in sump.

Do you place any bags of CC in the last compartment with the FM10000?

Or is just an empty last sump compartment with only the pump and nothing else?

Not sure if there is any direct correlation.
I have known some whereby they placed bags of CC ontop or same compartment as ghe pump.
Pump jams and die faster.
Those that is standalone, still not dead yet.
Same installation timing.

if powder can jam the pump means its of inferior quality. Powder can come from cc, media, bioearth or simply fish waste..etc

Even if its from different compartment, the powder will still end up sucked in by the pump anyway.

Heard that the reason why ppl leave the last compartments empty without any media is because the more thing you put inside there then the less water you have at the last compartment.
It will cause the water evaporation more faster; and doesn't have sufficient water to cool down the power head.
So mayb this is also one of the cause make the pump dead earlier?
But don't know it is true or not.
