Reeflo Snapper Died
« on: January 05, 2011, 08:25:25 PM »
My Reeflo Snapper tried to light itself on fire, melting the plastic bit support where all the wires connect.  I am going to try and get it fixed, but I have no idea where to do it in town.  I'm also not sure if it's under warranty at all.

The bigger issue is that now I have nothing to move water between my sump and DT.  Does anyone have a spare snapper/dart that I could borrow or know where I could buy a new one?  I really wouldn't mind having a spare in case this happens again.

I don't think so, I've unfortunately not met very many people here yet, since my life has been pretty crazy since I moved in June.  I bought my system from Alex Price (Taqpol) and he was using the same pump, so maybe that's who you're thinking of .

FYI, ReeFlo was pretty awesome about the whole thing.  I told them what happened and they just shipped me a new one, didn't even ask for me to ship it back so I wouldn't pay to ship something that was completely broken.

James,
   ON Reef Frontiers there is a gentleman looking to buy a part for Snapper.   So maybe you both can help each other?   Awesome News!   I am very happy to hear this! :)

It turns out he does need a couple little parts that I'm going to send his way.

Thanks for thinking of me.  I wish I could actually meet some of you guys, but all of the meetings have been on nights when I have other commitments.  Hopefully I can be there next month, which will be a welcome break from moving to a new house.
