    So today whilst at work I have given my drum the ultimate test.

    some how, I have managed to flood my filter pit and the drum.
    I cant tell the extent of the damage as the pictures my misses have sent arn't quite clear enough to tell how high the water line is, I think it may of finished just below the motor meaning I might be lucky and now only require a new washer pump. Worse case, it will be the UV Lamp, base and ballast, motor and washer pump.

    has anyone else decided to throw away a thousand pounds yet?? ☹️☹️

    Same here, hope you're lucky.

    My issues are hopefully behind me now, the drum has been running away without any issues. I was cleaning out my planted pond and the resultant crap that I stirred up had the drum in an almost constant cleaning cycle for a while. It took around 24 hours to clear the water again but did the job.
    Fingers crossed we all have an uneventful winter with our drums.

    You might be lucky - as there is rubber seal in the drum motor housing (between the cover and drum filter housing itself) - plus all electric connections are located way up under the cover - so partial flooding - fingers crossed - should not damage it - I have seen it when tightening the famous nut on slip clutch. Also the UV-C should be OK - the housing of the lamp is well insulated against water intrusion - but do not know about it's control unit though. How high did you installed your control box for the drum itself? This one should not be submerged at all.
