cpr bak pak horror

early today i came to my 25 gal salt water tank to empty the collection cup on my cpr bak pak. to my dismay one of the filter pads i had put in it had been blown up into the overflow back to the tank and cloged it, therefore making the waterlevel in the back pack overflow onto the hard wood floor instead.
just wanted to tell people to make shure their filter media is lodged in their hard. and even though it happend i still think that the cpr bak pak is a great product

Filter pads? Where were these at in the skimmer?
Mine came with a sponge that I could insert around the return pipe if I had micro bubbles entering the tank, but since I've never had that issue, I never installed it.

well that sucks!!! hopefully you didn't loose any life. there is a sponge which fits around the return tube and works well to trap bubbles. check that out.
