anyone else have something like this happen? the noise is definitely coming from the dry unit. should I contact ecotech? how do they handle warranties? next week will be 1 year since i bought it.

Leaving now. See you #####es on the flip side.
I will occasionally get a nasty grinding noise from mine
I found that it is always caused by a curious dwarf cerith snail getting sucked in
When it happens it certainly sounds as if it is coming from the dry side but obviously in my case it is a wet side issue
Did you take apart the wet side and clean it?
Noises are kinda difficult to locate exactly.

Eco tech normally does overnight for returning repairs to you. Also I bet the grinding wasn't the dry side...I bet it was sand in the wet side

Have the same problem. Ended up being a bearing in the motor. Happened outside of warranty on mine. Still waiting for the unit to be returned from ecotech; basically they sold me a new dryside at a discounted price.
Bummer that the bearing went so fast, but ecotech support was good.
