broken FX6 Lid

Postby jcover » Sat Aug 01, 2020 6:14 pm

Hi, I purchased a used fluval FX6 that came with a broken lid. The lid is broken on the inlet spout where the aquastop valve connects.

Has anyone had any luck repairing this piece? Is there a place I can get a replacement lid? I'm located in Canada, so fluval.com does not have this part available to me..

I did reattach the broken piece with superglue and it seems to hold, but I am skeptical that this will hold long term.

I see the Canadian site doesn't have the replacement lid available. I ship everything I order to a freight forwarder in Miami, FL who then send it to me. I imagine they would have freight forwarders in the U.S. who then send it across the Canadian border. My freight forwarder doesn't add significantly to cost vs. shipping direct.

How do you find a freight forwarder?
