i bought a external filter about 7 months ago it was an eheim classic 2213. after about 3 months it lost all flow. took it back to the retailer and he told me he would send it away for repair. after a month i contacted the shop and they said it has just been sent to germany for testing( very strange when he could have plugged it in to his tanks) but i was ok with that. now 3 and a half months later still not been contacted by the shop i have to phone them all the time to find out about it and all i get is we havent herd anything yet we will let you know. i dont know if i have any rights on this. The best thing was me and the manager were friends before this all happend just shows you who you can trust does anybody on here know what i can do please :confusion-helpsos:

your contract is with the shop - not the manufacturer.
he should have replaced it immediately - or at worst after checking it for himself.
tell him you are going to trading standards or citizens advice if you don't have this resllved within 7 days.
Would love to know what he expected you to if this had been the only filter you had - buy another or let the fish die?

As far as I know consumer law states that, as Jim said, your contract is with the shop and they should have offered you, 1 - your money back, 2 - an exchange or 3 - a repair, at your option.
