its 3 a.m. do you know where your water levels are?
so i wake up at 3 a.m. on a school night last night hearing a grinding sound:-(. i was hoping it was a serial killer... but no!:evil: when i put my glasses on and turned on the light there was a nearly empty sump and a water level in the display 2 inches under what it was. and a wet floor... so i waited till 6 30 when i woke back up and threw the the airstones in there to make a little oxygen and some circulation then after school i replaced the 3.5 gallons of saltwater and resealed the return pump ( i think the returne line leaked:-?...) set a lower gph rate to prevent leaking and restarted everything. so anyone else have this happen? i think it was a loose return line but i wanna be sure. :| yhanks for any comments!:-)
I had my sump leak due to the stand floor not being level. I had to place a styrofoam pad beneath the sump and floor of the stand.
It could be anything. Inspect closely before you go to bed tonight!!!
Mine has one possible leaky point, at the top of the overflow that's gravity fed...so pretty much nill pressure. I use a single hose from inside the sump all the way up to the tank so there's no way the pressurized water can leak...unless the 1/4 inch solid, unwieldy, hose gets a hole.
thanks:) and ill try the pad.
