    Ok so I drained my resivoir, split the resivoir and pump, I'm about to change the filter, but the filter currently on my pump is a small cylindrical filter, plastic "frame" with a mesh screen sort of. The new filter I have is plastic with the typical paper sort of filter, almost like an air filter.

    So my question is, is it ok to put this new filter on? Is it a sort of "update" vs the old one? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Ok so next question, I opened the "pump" I believe, the sort of "house" shaped thing that has 2 gears in side the resivoir, that the pickup tube and filter are attached to, my question is there are two gears, the smaller one has a large hole on one end of the "spline" and a smaller on the other end, which one is supposed to be towards the resivoir?
