If something leaks then send it back.. its a inexpensive UV
.. you could buy 4 of them for the price of one of those "superior" products.. the first 2 could be horrible and you got nothing for them (other then selling them to me..LOL
) and if the 3rd one worked as it should you would save money.. at least 25%.. try to look at a big online retailer for a 36watt UV
filter and come back and tell me that Im wrong... JK
personally if I couldnt get the seller to replace it.. and that would be very improbable.. I would fix it.. but thats just me..
