My tubing connection from filter to the fish tank came lose. My tank holds 100 gallons of water and feeds my Aquatubes. Should this connection break down I would lose all my water and my fish will die. BIG PROBLEM !!!! I tried going without the filter for about 3 weeks. Ph shoot up to 7.85 and smaller fish started to die out.
I have been reading about sugru on the MAKE blog site for some time. I was unemployed at the time of their first release that sold out in 6 hours and was unable to order any product at the time. I knew at that point I needed this product. One of my objectives in attending the MAKER FAIR in May held in San Mateo, CA was to purchase this product. Up to this point I only wanted to use it on a mission critical project. Then my filter tubing system started to come apart on my 100 gallon system — MAJOR PROBLEM. Called for a creative solution.
My solution was — SUGRU — I had been holding onto my supply for the right application. Here it was.
