4.0 out of 5 stars Carelessly packed, 5 Feb 2014
This arrived in a couple of plastic bags with no padding and the pins were unprotected. I found it quite surprising that there was no damage.

They suffer from having robots giving robotic answers in their customer support area. They are deaf to reason. I sent them a photo of my impeller shaft, showing that it was thin and malformed at one end and had broken after less than three week's use. The shaft doesn't move, the impeller rotates upon it. I have no fish so my water was clean and fresh. I pointed all this out to them beforehand. Here is a selection from their replies:
"We cannot be held responsible for a foreign body entering the impeller chamber". (Are your filters no good then?)
