Tetra have identified a problem with this range of filters. The hose adaptor unit ball valve spindles can leak water, which then fills up the compartments within the top of the filter and then overflows down the sides of the canister. This leads the customer to think that the main canister seal is leaking, when in fact it is most unlikely.
Tetra have modified the adaptor unit and are fitting it to all new production stock.
Mine cost me about Â£125 from AquaEssentials as a special order. I've just had a look and they seem to have gone up in price to Â£150. I did see them a few months back for less than Â£100. As they're not really imported into the UK much, I guess the price will reflect that from time to time.nelson said:clark,where did you get one for Â£100

The rule of thumb is... "if it's cheap, it's cheap for a reason"
And I think there's the other one from Graeme/George/Dan "buy cheap, buy twice"
