BIO-Wheel® Assembly for the Penguin® PF170B.

Is part #PR1940B for the Penquin 150 filter?

Asked by: Idontreallyhaveanickname
Part PR1940B is not for the Penguin 150. This part corresponds as the Bio-Wheel for the older style, Penguin 170. The correct Bio-Wheel for the Penguin 150 is PRBW150B. ML2

Bio Wheels

I wanted to know if you can list the replacement bio wheel or cartridge number for all of your filtration units. I am a reseller and since I have not used any of these filters myself personally, I do not know what replacement bio wheel to sell to my customers.

Does the bio wheel on any model be changed no matter how gunky and bad it looks?

I own a penquin 350 and 150. On the dual 350 the bio wheels look extremely slimy and disgusting and do not turn properly due to this. Should I replace them?
Asked by: horrortheater
As long as they start and stop on their own, there is no need to do anything. If they cannot do this, then first try cleaning them gently with warm water and a q tip, sliding it between the folds to remove excess slime. if this does not help, remove and replace them, one at a time, a week or so apart.

Which filter is this for?

I have the Penquin Biowheel 200. Is the is part for this?
Asked by: tammywill
No. You need PRBW2350B if you are looking for the biowheel itself. BREX
