Perhaps sending them pictures would help them come up with a solution, if the solution they came up with doesn't solve it.

Well, I bit the bullet and bought a new 306. I figure I can possibly use both when I upgrade tanks, if I can get the first one to stop leaking. Otherwise I'll just have spare parts :-/

Nice. Not a bad thing to have lots of filtration :)

I just purchased a a Sun Sun 302 filter for my fish tank. Lubricated all joints to help create a water tight seal, as they are known to have issues with leaking. So far so good after 1 day.. time will tell.

Cool. I was thinking if I purchase something else new in the future I might go with Eheim. They seem to have higher quality parts maybe.

From what I've heard Eheim used to be one of the top notch companies with their products and services, but lately their products have been having some quality control issues. Read across some forums and Amazon reviews.

I have a Penn Plax Cascade filter as well, pretty good filter. They all work and look the same anyways. I think as long as the flow is good enough, and they hold enough media, you'll be ok.

Could it be just some of their lower end products? Of course if they started to outsource more of their equipment, it can have a very negative impact on quality (like Filstar).

May be the case. Seems like a lot of people do have good luck with the higher end canisters.
