Anyone else experienced this with the Clarisea SK5000? I loaded a brand new fleece and it seems like the water can’t pass through it, as if it’s covered is some sort of waterproof substance. I’ve been running the Clarisea on this tank for a year now, replacing the fleece on average every 6 weeks. It’s been functioning absolutely fine. The new fleece causes the chamber to fill with water immediately, triggering the float switch and rolling on the filter, making no difference to the water level. The fleece is completely clean coming out the unit and almost dry to the touch. I’ve tried reducing the return to the lowest possible setting and making sure the float switch is raised as high as possible. Only way to solve is to open the bypass, which causes water noise and means no mechanical filtration. Awaiting a response from D-D now.

I bought a new roll a few weeks back from my local shop. I fit it last weekend and the alarm kept going off after a few hours. I turned it off as I've been busy busy work. Just checked my new roll and exactly the same thing. It's like it's completely waterproof. Nothing can go through the fleece. Must be a bad batch going about. My local shop not answering the phone like usual.. did you get any response?
 

Would you ever consider setting up a "dropoff" reef aquarium?
