What is the REAL Nano Cube Crack Rate?

Recommended Posts

sNEIRBO

Here's a little unscientfic survey for you. Keep in mind, we're relying on the Honor System. No lying - don't tell us you had a crack when you didn't, no multiple votes.

 

JBJ has stated that their return rate is 3.25% for all returns - Lighting, Pumps, missing components, cracks, etc. I personally believe that figure and think the actual crack rate is probably very low. We need EVERYONE who owns a Nano Cube to respond to this poll to get an accurate crack rate. If you know someone that owns a Nano Cube but is not registered on Nano-Reef.com then respond for them, or note in your post that you know people who have a Cube that has not cracked. I'll count additional Cubes manual and post complete numbers periodically.

 

If you own a Nano Cube that has NOT cracked, please check "No" above, then provide the following data -

 

Model

Start Date of your Tank

 

If you own a Nano Cube that cracked, please check "YES" above, then provide the following data -

 

Model

Start Date of your Tank

Date you noticed a crack

Did your tank leak? If so how much water?

What losses did you release because of your Nano Cube Failure?

 

Please no debates here. We're just collecting data.

 

This is probably the largest gathering area of any for Nano Cube Hobbyists. We should be able to get an accurate crack rate if everyone responds, and responds honestly.

 

Edit: We DO need to count the multiple tanks people have. Unfortunately there is no way for you to vote more than once on a poll here at nano-reef.com. Please note in your post if you have mutliple tanks. We can keep track manually and update as we go.

No crack for me.. until they develop Crack Lite that is... LOL j/k (kids, just say no to drugs!)

 

On a serious note: My Cube has performed well. Only issue I had was the Pump overheating the water. JBJ replaced it and everything is great.

 

Although I do find myself looking at the corners A LOT MORE NOW...:blink:

for people with multiple tanks, you should count a vote for each tank they have that has cracked/not cracked - otherwise you lose a lot of accuracy - for those of you who have had a tank cracked, the replacement if you got one should count as one that didn't crack - unless it did...and the replacement for that one should also count...and so on...
