Have just complained to Hagen in fairly short manner. sent them a link to this thread and expressed my displeasure at having to replace my filter after only 9 months. Will keep you posted.
I was looking at one of these as well (actually, a 306) but am rethinking the purchase if the cover constantly deforms and reduces flow as a result. Please let us know what you hear back from Hagen and good luck.
If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be "meetings." óDave Barry
