Re: [APD] Clear for Life Aquarium Problem

OK, maybe I'm just a bit dense here, but after following this thread since
its beginning and looking at www.clearforlife.com, they say the following:
"Advance Aqua Tanks offers a Lifetime Warranty on all our ClearforLifeT
aquariums. What does that mean? Simply this: We stand behind our product 100

Apparently "stand behind" means something entirely different to them than a
rational person's interpretation, given their refusal to do anything about
the situation.

Not to overstate the obvious, but doesn't this fall under the category of
(patently) false advertising? Or does "stand behind" mean just that: in the
event of a problem, they'll come and stand behind your tank? ;-)~

However, I do appreciate your frustration in dealing with what appears to be
a bunch of yahoos and hope you're able to conclude this with a minimum of
further time and discomfort!

I was using my orbital buffer that I use on the car. It's low speed enough
to keep the danger of heat build-up pretty low. I haven't tried getting a
finer polish. I need to get one that will allow inspection of a finish under
full noon sun without visible swirls. If a polish can do that, it should be
able to take care of my problem.
