    It depends on the configuration. Most powerheads are configured just to circulate water. If you put it on a gravel tube for a under the gravel filter, it will act as the mechanism to filter the water through the gravel. If you put a pre-filter on the powerhead, it will act as a mechanical filter. If you stick vinyl tubing on the outlet, you can use it as a pump.

    It is usually for water circulation to prevent having "dead spots" in your tank.

    Dead spots are places that water does not circulate thus making the water quality in that area a bit bad.
