Yeah if I plan on using them. I'm gonna use the filter some until I buy a new one in a few weeks and eventually I'll get a pump and start using the skimmer instead

Ok well my temp dropped a little over night I turned the heater up some. specific gravity is just a hair over 1.026 but the filter had unsalted water in it so that should help. Water cleared a little but still is cloudy. The filter running may help

Yea just give it time. And it's a good thing there replacing your heater. But no harm done.

I'd call them anyway and tell them your having issues.

No sense in that. they already mailed a new 150 watt I should get it one day this coming week.

They offered me a refund or a new heater. Told them I needed the heater
