Convict's First Go at a Planted Tank
I have to put up with this noise problem for what ............. a year ??????????? Forget it. I am going to return it if possible.
Mine is so annoying ........ you can hear it at the other end of the house. It has to be unplugged to sleep. Sending it back if I can ........... absolutely no response from Hagen who promises 24 hour response time. Well............... it's been 36 hours and ZERO.
This filter is the worst thing that could happen.
I have never asked for an exchange or refund of anything from Amazon. This will be my first time. Since you cannot leave a tank without a filter for days on end, I am buying a new one.
DO NOT BUY THIS WORTHLESS FILTER>
If I get a refund from Amazon for this POS filter, I'll just apply it to the next purchase I make since I use them all the time.
Life is too short to worry about saving money on the best filters ......... Yes, Petland is overpriced ....... but they allow convenient returns.
**** this kind of crap reminds me so much of GM/FORD/CHRYLER of the 1980's. Do they think they own the market ?
No. There will be another (probably foreign brand ...... soon.
Just like my entire family has bought nothing but Toyota & Lexus for the past 23 years. We so gave up the American branded car so easy.
