    Think your right there Andi,when I bought mine from Tony he was sending to the States and I am sure he mentioned oz.

    Send him a message on his web,he wont mess you about.

    I have found someone who sells the drums over here. The only issue is everything imported tends to get a hefty mark up,like 3 times the cost.
    At the moment even though Draco is more expensive I have read on here that they have the better support,

    Just re read this whole thread as I now have a problem with my UV Sunday afternoon pottering in my shed when all the electrics went of.Checked all the sockets in the shed nothing wrong there looked at the pond and the air was not on so on checking all the electrics in the filter shed I noticed that the ballast box for the UV was red hot (80 watt filtreau UV unit) isolated and disconnected everything to find water pi$$ing out of the ballast box sealed unit. I managed to prise the back of and although the box is filled with silicon it was also full of water and after taking the rest of the unit apart I noticed that the quartz sleeve was broken. No idea how this has happened but pretty fed up as the whole lot is only about 18 months old. Needless to say I have ordered another complete UV unit as I cannot take the chance of using this unit now.

    Having re read this thread I have also noticed that people are talking of the black box control unit. Mine has never worked form the 4 plugs. The plug that controls the drum and the UV plug have never worked and I have just had them plugged directly to a double socket with European adaptors. Anyone else have this as I was told that most people just plug directly into the mains anyway.

    I bought a AEM drum from a local koi shop who imported it. The drum itself is working good for may till now.. The issue i am having is the UV light. It stopped working 3 times already. Changing the bulb did not work. I had to replace the whole light panel each time.. The guy says no one else he sold to is having this issue but im not sure i believe him. The uv light itself is fine along with the sleeve and chamber.
    Anyone else having UV issues?

    I had a problem with the ballast when I first got it. But it’s worked fine since. The ballast is not difficult to replace. If your kit is still under warranty you should definitely get the dealer to arrange for a new ballast for you. No point changing (expensive) tubes if the ballast is bust.
