    I'm not sure how the squirt works, but my 4-way also did the sama after a snail crawled (do snails crawl?) into the drum and messed it up. I had to open up the whole thing and found that the motor was doing fine but had worn away the plastic socket that it fitted in.

    I had to repair the wear, filled the gaps and it has been fine since..

    I actually talked to Paul from OM last night. My motor went bad. They are sending me a new one for no charge. I LOVE those guys!

    I have never see a customer with customer service like OceansMotions. Simply amazing.

    For the price that they charge for those thing, they better have great customer service :D

    Not all do unfortunately. The crazy thing is this is not an easy feat for Paul as his operations is located in Canada. :D

    Squirt IMO is pretty darn quiet. Love the thing.

    When I bought my OM 4-Way I'll always remembers Pauls email response to me asking how loud it was:

    About as loud as this email :D

    kind of off topic but which would you recommend for a 50g tank. OM squirt or a squid?

    Squirt over a SCWD any day. The SCWD tends to gum up and can reduce flow by 40% and you only get 2 outlets. I had to replace my SCWD three times in one year, so the price for each seem on par.

    That was so badly written. Me sleepy!

    I would take a Squirt anyday over a SCWD.

    I bought two - One of the two worked well for about four to six months and then clogged (overflowed my tank twice) - I threw it in the garbage can. The second one (brand new) I donated to the raffle.

    I hooked up the Squirt and have never looked back - one of the best darn investments I ever bought.
