President Colin welcomed those members attending to this weeks meeting. Colin then briefly mentioned the sheet for the bus trip and the upcoming auctions both in Scotland and down south.
A brief discussion on dry goods sales at auctions was had with it being agreed there is no right or wrong way just many approaches to the same issue.
Joe mentioned that his FX5 filter had stopped working the previous day with his son having to turn it off due to the far from normal noises it was making and the lack of water being filtered. Joe had taken the pump apart and had brought the impellor housing in to see if members could offer any suggestions. Members had a look Joe took the impellor apart so members could get a better look at the shaft itself. Brian thought the shaft seemed to be spinning freely but Colin thought the shaft seemed a lot slacker than it should be?
After everyone had a look and those with knowledge of external canisters had got their hands on it Joe put the shaft away in the impellor assembly and said he would try contacting Fluval the next day. Since the meeting Fluval have told Joe to bring it back in to Fishkeeper Edinburgh and swapped it for a FX6 !
