My AC 110 Blunder

Post by Micheal on Sat Nov 28, 2009 2:32 pm

Yesterday I completely took apart my AC 110 for a cleaning. In the processing of putting the motor housing back on I didn't get it completely seated. Didn't notice till I had filled the tank back up and after 15 minutes or so I noticed the water level was dropping in the tank. I had redid the rocks so my first thought was maybe I had cracked the glass. Thankfully that wasn't the case but when I looked behind the tank sure enough a stream of water was pouring out of the water housing. Luckily this tank sits on a tile floor so no damage was done but if I would have left I guess the tank would have drained to below the intake tube.

That is a very good lesson to learn from. I know of someone else who had that same thing happen to them and after sharing his story, I always double check mine to make sure it's on properly!
