    Hi everyone,

    I got home last night and noticed that one head of my hammer (which is huge) seems to be retracting and not looking health. The other 20+ heads are doing very well.

    The hammer has been in this location (medium flow) for a month now.

    Any ideas as to what it could be? Parameters are stable.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the response Dallas. I left for work in the dark this morning, so I will only see this afternoon. Strange....
