    My lovely 4 years old SURF 4X worked perfectly but......finally passed away

    Hello,

    Just a week ago, for 4 years, my favorite SURF 4X still worked perfectly,
    suddenly half of the LED's became very warm (I noted increased work
    of the refrigerator, but the reason found when I stared to harvest the scrubber).

    Finally the inner filler swelled up literally ripped the top cover
    so it was finally cracked at the one side. The photos is attached

    Tried to isolate the crack as well as the whole lid, but it did not help more.
    Apparently looks the water did get inside and all LED's were completely burnt outю

    It was really beautiful and durable device for such environment like a salt water.
    It did a really good job, but...... now I have to continue without.Click image for larger version

    Yes it does look like water may have gotten inside. You could use a clip-on light for now, to keep the growth going, although it would not be as quiet and it would float higher. If you mounted the clip-on light to a black plastic box (8 x 10 inches) with a hole cut out, then it would be more quiet and also the light would be contained.
