    Broken skimmer

    Here' my problem. The wife picked up my protein skimmer the other night and it slipped out of here hands. When it fell it broke off a 90 elbow. ( I now have that removed and the hole cleaned up) and it also broke off the main tube from the base plate. I was wondering what kind of glueI would use to put it all back together??. If it was a cheap piece of crap i'd just huck it in the garbage but it's a pretty good one and I got a pretty good deal on it. Not to mention i havn't even put any water in it yet!!! Any info would be a great help.
    Cheers,
    Mike Philpott

    If you have all the parts Mike and they fit together tightly you can fix it with Weldon #3. If the parts do not fit together very well use Weldon 5 or higher.

    all the pieces fit together pretty snug. I got to go tomorrow and get another 90 elbow. It could have been alot worse. could have cracked right up the side but it only cracked on the seems. Well except for the elbow. ( thank God) It was an honest mistake. Slipped out of her hand. What can ya do!!!:hammerhea int: I could do that!!!LOL

    Geez!! Perhaps buy you a new one!!! Or you can simply chuck "her" out!!! :
    The least she could do is perhaps buy you a "special" ( read expensive) fish or coral that you've been wanting!!!
