I have a really dumb question

I currently am running a juwel system that has a white sponge as a pre filter to the first stage of the biological filter.When i got the aquarium the filter was build up with 3 of these white pads in place. I assumed that this was the required amount so have continued to use three ever since..however my new tank only had 1 pre-filter and i am wondering if i am using too many on the first tank. Why would they sell them at x thickness and they use 3 of them at once?. I know its not a big problem but could using too much slow the rate of the water being draw over the main filter? should i use just one?
