    Broken Eheim 2080 - worth repairing??

    Hi there. Sorry but I won't be able to help. This was 7.5 years ago and I can't remember what happened in the end! Hope you manage to sort it out...

    16/22 mm Clear tubing for external filiters

    For water changes I use 22x28mm kiowa clear plastic piping, .22x28mm Clear PVC Tube | Kiowa Ltd , sooo much faster than 16/22 and superfast when connected to powerhead. It also happens to slide straight over my sink tap without the need for any connectors. For underwater piping and connectors...

    Fitting power head onto Eheim 2080

    Thanks Alastair, that is very helpful. I will give that a go. I use filter floss rolls also - 305gsm from The Wadding Shop which i think is the same as 25-30mm from Finest Filters, only tiny bit cheaper, but both seem to be different names for the same company.

    Fitting power head onto Eheim 2080

    Hi Alastair Apart from the Mech, I have no other media in the trays. I do have loads of Eheim substrat type media at home; Should I replace the Mech with this? How much do you think?

    Fitting power head onto Eheim 2080

    I read on Dutch Nature style | Page 2 | UK Aquatic Plant Society that Yo-han uses an inline Wave Stream 2200 to increase flow on his Eheims and I was considering doing the same by placing a pump after the outlet of one of my Eheim 2080s. While I expect the increased flow will help filtration and...

    Broken Eheim 2080 - worth repairing??

    Thanks nduli. I sent it off to john allan. It came back last week. They replaced the primer and diaphragm. I installed the pump over the weekend but after 15 mins the pumphead was leaking again. Definately not to do with the taps or cannister as i have another 2080 running and when i swap over...

    Broken Eheim 2080 - worth repairing??

    Hi there, Last week I bought a second hand Eheim 2080. It has been working fine until today when I managed to break the primer button (see below) trying to restart the filter after some maintenance. I think I made it all worse when I opened the filter up to check the broken part. After I...
