Miaustore Pump usage and maintenance

With continuous usage of the pump sometimes dirt, cat hair, food particles can get
accumulated inside the pump and lower its efficiency. This may permanently damage
the pump. It is very important that when we change the water and clean the ceramic
parts, we must also clean the pump.

Please note that the pump must be switched on only when it is fully submerged in water. Operating the pump without water will burn the coils and damage the pump.
