:( Maybe the heat from the friction wore the plastic out. How old was the unit?

brand new unit :(

i think this si why it borke: the bottom level thing. u know, the one that helkps the filter stay up straight, u kinda plug it into the bottom of the filter, so it doesnt lean. mine broke off, and was leaning backwards. and with the filter full of media, i think thats why i coulda snapped. by jsut leaning backwards. but i dunno:( i still cant find my receipts from big als, i know i gottem somewhere, but i ended up buying a new unit already. oh well, anpther 40 bux
