    So I get home tonight to find my floor soaked, looked everywhere for the leak and then saw it, my sump had cracked from where the skimmer pipe goes into the first chamber to the bottom. Obviously I need to be more careful in future when I put the skimmer cup back on.:(

    But never fear Adriaan from IM will be here to fix in the morning, now thats what I call service. Hopefully my Vortecks will keep everything going till tomorrow night when I can fill up again.
