    no, one day i just notice a pile of scum flotting on top of the nozzle. So after watching it for a half hour and then crying for a half hour i put this post up. They called me once and i was not home. They told me to send it back and they would send me a new one. That is fine and dandy but i need to get back up and running as this is my entire current system beside my protein skimmer. I e-mailed them if they could send me a new one and i would even give them a credit card # to hold onto for security. No response.

    I also could not see anything wrong with mine. Had the flash light on it and it looked clean. I did move it closure to the pump to see if that would prevent this problem in the future. Also found out why a check valve in the line is a good thing. Old piping did not.

    Not too bad now, I took it off and rinsed it out. Much better. I guess occasional cleaning may be called for, but worth it for the price.

    I am hoping mine is just a bad apple and the new one will solve all my problems. It is great when it runs right. Installing the new one tomorrow. I will aloso send the old one back and see if i can get a report on why it keeps failing.
