    yer..no longer turning..lol

    i was sat there twiddling with my torch last night at midnight,,and it just started to empty via return pump....:eek:

    lucky i was there,,after many tries at restarting it,,loooked like a dead duck..

    so then had to reconfigure my sump, auto top up, heater sensor etc..so i didnt oversalt my tank, or boil it,

    also can't use my skimmer as sump level too high,,

    and the constant slurping is driving me nuts :eek:

    I wont ask what you have to do to become one of Steve's "special" friends, Im not that desperate for a free trial :D
