I have already gone through 2 heaters because the water level in the sump doesn't cover a submersible completely and doesn't reach a high enough level on a hang on.
I'd be very interested to know what others are doing about this problem?
Thanks in advance.
I would say he and myself are not following the rules for maximum water level in the sump area.
most likely he's raising the sum water level well above maximum. that's what I had to do to get the sump area to get water flowing
as an update, i don't even know how duke got the skimmer in there, the area is just way way too small. 2nd, as far as the heater, it fits in the 1st chamber once you break off the false floor -- which most bio cube people do. then break off that one tab that restricts flow from the 1st chamber to the 2nd.
the 2nd chamber is completely empty, unless you're like me and have the skimmer in that chamber.
I'm having a hard time with the suction cups though, they don't stay there and gets kicked off easily. i'm kinda frustrated by that and will attempt to remount the suction cups today again -- hopefully add more water in the sump as well.'
