    Basically they replaced the 2 pumps with one more powerful pump, based at the bottom of return chamber, which prevents overheating and bubbles if water level drops, and also has circulating head. Must be pump used in new 130 series. Would love to buy this as I have experienced problems with existing pumps.

    Yeah, it sucks that the offer was only available in the states and Canada :( I don't know it can be purchased/haven't seen it for sale.

    You could probably do this yourself with a bigger pump and y connector.

    The thing that irratated me with the current stock pumps that the water level...if the overflow blocked slightly water would drain from the back and cause the pumps to push out air. I ended up buying chiller tubing and extending the inlet pipe.

    Yeah - a question to be raised at Red Sea Max Meeting perhaps - pity I can't be there. I have sent a mail to Red Sea - will let you know what they say

    Good fix with tubing - will look into this in the mean time:thumbup:
