Hi, I have the eheim Air Pump 3704 (2 x 200L/h). I've had it for three months. I was removing my airline from one of the connections yesterday to add another airline, and the connection lug severed off clean inside the airline. I am always careful to pull straight out, so that the lug isn't damaged. So now I cant attach the airline to the pump. Hmmmmmm.... not impressed! Does anyone have any ideas how to fix this without wrecking the pump? Has this happened to anyone else with the eheim air pumps? I need to replace the pump with a spare anyway (which I have to purchase), but I don't want to purchase another eheim if this is a common problem. They cost an arm and a leg, but I thought I was buying quality. http://www.aquaticsupplies.com.au/eheim-adjustable-air-pump-3704-with-hose-and-diffuser-2-x-200l-h.html
So I was cleaning my tank today and while taking the intake tube of the 70 off to scrub, the u-tube nub (controls the flow control) snaps right off. :madrant Then I took a wooden dowel in my art drawer and stuck it into the hole that was created after the piece went flying. PERFECT FIT! I slapped some crappy hot-glue work on the seams afterwards and its back on the job. Lesson: The AC baby's are tough! Lets hope that the filter doesn't break down again before my DIY job does.
