Skimmer Heater Combo!!!!!!!!!


NoobtoSalt

Recommended Posts

Ok so I was doing a water change this morning and I was getting the water out of the sump as I usually do and I thought I had everything turned off. On my way back from the garage getting my fresh saltwater I noticed a plastic burning smell..(scary)

 

Well My sump was empty and my heater was still turned on!(flame) So now I have a heater that has melted it's way into my skimmer. The good news is at as of this moment the skimmer still works fine but once the heater breaks it's way loose from the skimmer I'm going to have to fix it this weekend at some point.

 

Anyhow, I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on how to patch a hole in the side of a skimmer?(laugh)

I think it sounds like a great excuse to upgrade your skimmer. Bet you won't do that again!

This skimmer is only about 4 months old..DOH!

 

But on the bright side I just picked up my LED's for my tank and they make it look sweet!!! I won't have them mounted till tomorrow but I couldn't help but check it out on the tank anyways..LOL
