Default Exo Terra Waterfalls

A word of advice STAY AWAY FROM THE WATERFALLS, i went to a shop to get one set it up it was runnign fine for 5mins then water started pissing out the back, took it out and took it back to the shop piced up the same make the same size took it home set it up plugged it in turned it on it did exactly the same thing

went to a totally different shop miles away from the first one i went to
explained to the guy that ive gone through two in the last hour and asked him to test the same make same size waterfall and low and behold it did exactly the same thing the water pissed out the back

there is a design fault on the exo terra waterfalls that the resin is to sharp inside the water fall and has split the pipe that the water goes up to pump the water out

i would steer clear of all exo terra waterfalls if i were you and save yaself some money

Yeah. I have had a few issues aswell. The pipe is too short, the motor is noisy and it clogs up easily. Mine is in the viv now just as a dry rock...A very expensive dry rock....Steer Well Clear!

i had one that poured water out the back after 5mins aswell!

I sent it back to get a new one and the new one is much better. Still not ideal as is very noisy.

Apparantly they breed loads of bacteria in the viv if not cleaned often. This is really bad with chams and sensitive creatures.

maybe theya re making them different now but whats the point in going out and spending all that money on something that is brand new and boxed for you to get it home and it not to work its not right and i think exxo terra should recall alla the small water falls and check them all out before sending them back out to customers

I bought one second hand off e-bay. Don't know how old it is but I've had it running a few months and the rubber tube next to the pump has perished. I tried taping it up with electric tape as a temporary solution but it stopped working again. I reckon I might be able to find a replacement as other than that it's fine. It's bloody noisy but my velvets don't seem to mind - in fact they seem to like sitting on it when it's vibrating like mad..... not sure what that's all about but probably best not to go there!!

They're down right dangerous IMO. I nearly got an electric shock from one once.

if you are thinking about getting a waterfall for you vivs or what ever you keep your animals in i would suggest either ZOOMED or another company called JBL they have a couple of water falls and the one by JBL is gorgoeus
a little bit more expensive than the chavvy exo terra ones but at least they are made properly and work very well
