    It's a good thing Tunze removed that STUPID alarm from their pumps!!!! I got a call just a few days ago from where my tank is at. They said a loud alarm started going off early in the AM and they pulled the plug from that device. I had them clean it and soak the impeller in kim Chi vinegar.

    I was in Europe and I had someone staying at my house and they wound up leaving cause they couldn't figure out how to turn it off and it was making them insane. Took them a day or two to reach me.

    I have an extra.
    You can try it any time.
    I think it will make you want more.
    My tank has not one wire in it.
    I like that.

    How thick is the glass on your tank Lapsan? That's the one downfall of the Vortech you really are limited to 3/4" which shouldn't be an issue with most tanks, but some have tanks that are 1" or thicker material (Bryan's back of his tank does, but his sides don't).

    Pretty sure those were the really old ones (with non-wireless drivers) that Arnold sent in for repairs/upgrade.

    Tom's were gen1 and Tom had many issues with them. A ton didn't. The loudest voice is almost always those that are not happy...meaning the ones with the worst problems are the most vocal.
