We've been having storms and windy weather lately and the lights have been flickering. I didnt think too much of it until I went to feed my fish tonight and noticed my 75 gallon aquaclear wasnt running. Horrified I unplugged it refilled it and try as I might the poor thing would'nt start. So I took it off removed and media and yanked off the motor. Taking a cup of water I held it just inside and plugged it in. Started right up. So I put the filter back together on my tank and after a long horrid struggle it began to run again.
Thank god aquaclear makes good products
That filter probubly ran dry for at least two days. Although my water quality is probubly is dismay now at least my filter is okay. Time for lots of waterchanges and recycling
