Guess I'll just send em back.. I liked the 160 degree arc they put out... but I won't keep something that won't come back on when the power is applied to it again.. that's just silly imho..

that only happened one time and i have been running two since sept. turning them off at least once a day since then. many powerheads are not meant to be turned on and off often. i think it has something to do with the impellar being able to stop in "dead spot" maybe someone else can give a more accurate description. i have had maxijets not come back on right away much more often

probably a controller like the tunze, taht doesn't actually cut power, instead it just cycles down the power to say 20-30% so that it really never stops running just the spin is so slow you dont get much/any current from it...

the tunze systems work like that, but cost next to nothing... now if you can DIY that, I might test it
