    bubble bead filter help

    I have one of the hourglass shaped BBf, the tan one about 5' tall. The outlet on the top cracked and is squriting water. I wondered if anyone has had this happen and if anyone might have a suggestion as to how I might fix this.....or is it finished. Thanks for any ideas. Joyce

    Can you post a photo showing the problem?

    I don't think I am going to be able to get a pic that will show much. I'll try tomorrow. If you are familier with the filter...it has a lighter colored material sealed onto the canister with threads so you can attatch the fitting for the pipe. That is where the small crack is. Just enough to leak. Joyce

    Try contacting the company that makes them to see if there is anyway to fix it. Here is their website: IFSolutions.us - quality aquatic filtration equipment and information.
