Your talking about the sicce right? My otp has start up problems too, but it's really easy to get starting (just blow into the air tube).
Edit: didn't see the quote, sorry.

I got it in October . The start up issue is a pain . Coral vue said there is rubber stoppers I can take out of the pump to prevent it. Crister blowing in it works most if the time but when it doesn't it's a pain. I recently had to give my sicce a good cleaning to get it quiet.

All 3, the NWB200($280), XS200($325) and SRO3000($415) have the same bodies with different pumps.
Thanks Capt.!! Great info. Much appreciated!

Mine didn't come with an elblow, it came with an adapter sleeve that goes on the ouput pipe. The adapter transitions from the metric plumbing on the skimmer to standard American sized plumbing so a standard elbow would fit on the sleeve. Take a look at the video I posted to see it.

I would go to CoralVue's forum on Reefcentral and ask Jeremy exactly which pump to get.
I would also explain the problem you are having. That pump should still be under warranty.
