    Default WTB sedra 3500 or 5000 skimmer pump

    I think I have a skimmer pump starting to leak voltage into my tank. I'm looking into options as far as a replacement pump for it. The skimmer is an ASM G1x. Let me know what ya got, local to GR would-be best or someone willing to ship.

    On a second note, is there a easy way to determine what piece of equipment is the faulty one? Very light stray voltage, it will give you just a tiny shock if you have a small cut on your hand. If it's an area without any cuts, you don't feel it at all. I'm currently out of the country until
    Monday and need to get this fixed ASAP when I get back.

    unplug things one at a time and stick your hand in between each. Also be sure to clean the Sedra in vinegar... My 3500 will do just as you're describing and after cleaning the issue is gone.

    Thanks for the tip Tom. I'll give the cleaning a try when I get back home.
