Hi....yea looks as though the Vallis is using up a lot of space and taking over that back section!
You could remove some or replace it with...
Aquael Internal Fan Filter Micro
Which is adjustable.....;)
Yip..... had the same pump on my central heating system....20 years ago!.....;):thumbup:
Till I got the heating system changed.
The pump has a flow dial!
Try adjusting that Diane.
Go to 5.25
Hi Diane....Did you clean the impeller/pump?
After you do this.... top up the compartment so the water is level with water in the aquarium!
Yes I agree with Kalum:thumbup:....you probably do not need all compartments full of media!
I suspect the pump head needs cleaned!
Shut the pump down and remove it...take the cover off and clean the impeller!
There will be a...
I get your drift Tim!;)
Why should you give them your hard earned :greedy:cash, if the products you purchase are not up to standard!
I purchased one...never had a problem with it, although the design could be better...cable should be routed up the back!
The sponge area is...
Purchase this small skimmer!
Even has a small guard on top....
I have Oase Filtosmart Thermo 100 filter running at the moment.
Yes it would!
You would need to purchase a set of shut off valves to attach to...
Make sure the both filter pipes/tubes are full of water...also the canister....turn on filter...push prime button!
I would remove 50% of your filter media if its packed full if you haven't done so!
Try that and see if the temperature...
You can get smokey grey JBL tubing from Maidenhead Aquatics...cut to length!
No Rob.....very quite!
I am currently running the Oase FiltoSmart Thermo 100 Aquarium External Filter!
On a 40cm cube about 67 litres volume....I wouldn't say it...
Shouldn't be a problem....attaching a UK plug would use a 3amp or a 5amp fuse though!

No problem with live stock!
Hydor are a well know company for producing various aquatic components!
From Filters to In-line heaters!
Below is a review on the...
Give it a good kicking:lol::banghead:;)
Try moving the filter up to aquarium height to see if that increases flow!
Taps fully open!
What Eheim model is this filter!
Have you greased the impellor shaft with Vaseline?
If its not air getting into filter...it could be a priming...
This is how the impellor should sit in the impellor chamber! (Picture below) with 2 rubber bushes at each end.
If there is excess noise there...
Have you read below!
Its already on order ...... the 8th January..........
Indeed......but the filter shouldn't leak around the priming button!
That's a major flaw/issue!:oops:
Just ordered the Oase FiltoSmart Thermo 100 Filter last week :banghead:.....I hope this is going to be a pain in the rectum to run!............:(...
You could try flushing some hot water down there to soften the bush, then use tweezers to remove it!
Fuse in the plug!......;)
Indeed good point.....these should be checked for!
They are easily lost down the sink!
If you have to much air in the canister and not enough resistance this will cause noise from the impellor!
Just like to say any...
Sounds like air to me......rattling the head!
I have found Eheims can be a pain to get started up properly sometimes!
My solution was (not for...
I'm not familiar with this model.
I'm sure there should be a little rubber bush, that attaches to the bottom of impellor shaft....could this be...
Yes with Bleach!
Never recall reading that anywhere!
Best letting it dry out......in my opinion.
Best clean the Purigen, then let it dry out and store in suitable container!
Been on the Seachem site....there's no information on shelf life!
Its a pretty stable product.
Should be okay to use....I would clean/bleach...
Tetratec produced a small external filter 400 model.
Someone did a review on it ...I cant find the review.
Height was about size of a wine...
Any updates on the filter?
Sometimes....mulm dislodges from the pipes!
Hibernation......you would be surprised what filters can do.....they can even induce mini white worm if given the correct parameters!
They look promising....like they idea of Thermo or Non Thermo even for the smaller filters on both ranges! :thumbup:...
A quick Cortana search...................http://www.gardensite.co.uk/Aquatics/oase-filtosmart-thermo-100-aquarium-external-filter.htm
No live stock just slow growing plants!
Seen that one!
Not worth the hassle!
Plus the Mrs wouldn't be happy with the look...next to the bed!
There is a few small ones ebay but I would like it even...
Too big!.... like it to fit onto a small 8 litre tank!
Will have a look!
Thanks but no....far too powerful.
I have Eheim Skim 350......looking for a tiny hang on!
Will have a look....I have a few but their too large!
I'm looking for a tiny hob hang on filter for use on a small vessel beside my bed!
Has anyone got any pointers!
There was a nice little filter on the market a few years back!
:thumbup: Well done!
Hi Andy ;)
I think you will get it running soon, with the combination of the above suggestions!
If you have too much air in the tubing external...
I always fill up the tubing with water before any sort of priming or switching the filter on!
I use Eheims which have on/off shut...
You could try this below!
Fill the filter full of water and also fill the pipes full of water...position the spray bar under the waterline for...
Better with a rectangle bucket to hold the water!
Purchase 2.....you could also drill them and add a tap!
Similar to this below which I...
Remember there is 2 different sizes of sets...12/16mm & 16/22mm.
Yes it secures the tubing to the installation sets.
Its just to the right of the rubber suction cup in the picture!
As you can see you don't need anything else!
The tubing is attached by a round locking nut.
Remove the filters and use some coarse filter sponge instead...if that's the issue.
Similar to this......[ATTACH]
I sometimes use the shower hose to blast the inside of the filter head.
I remove the shower head first.
Depends what deficiency your seeing?
Extra plant growth...you may need to double dose Macro/Micro.
Double dose for a few weeks see what the new...
Can you put up a link.
:woot::thumbup: Well done...Tomas
Yes looks like a good piece of kit...gonna use it to add some flow and and some aireation....in my low tech.
Could also cover the intake with...
I was intending to purchase one of these can the flow rate be adjustable?
Eheim Parts - 2076 - Eheim Pro 3e Electronic
Check here for all internal parts.
I would check that personally again...and also the impeller should have a similar rubber bush where the impeller shaft sits inside.
I don't think it will last more than a week.Tends to get a tad smelly meaning its off.
What you could do is just keep it running attached to a...
External Aquarium Fish Tank Hang On Filter 400L/H All Pond Solutions HO-400 NEW | eBay
Purchase a couple of these.
I'm not a 100% on this but i think Fluval filters have ribbed tubing...which posses a problem when connecting a Hydor heater.
Look here.....Kiowa Ltd | Tube
I presume its a air lift sponge filter.... will it not fit on your intake pipe on your external :?:
I agree with Darrel.
If the rubber bushes and the shaft are not positioned properly you will get rattling.
There maybe a problem with the...
Never had a problem with the older type...fingers crossed :lol:

I thought it may have been from the start.
Have a look on the floor sometimes they fall off if you've had the impellor out, or in the...
Some Maidenhead Aquatics have a pond section they may have the larger reducers there.
Take the head off and take the cover off that holds the impellor in place.
Check to see if there are two small rubber bungs on each end of the...
Is it air trapped or a mechanical noise.
When Ive had problems with getting air out filters.
This is the method i use although it should work for most canister filters.
What sound it making rattling or gurgling.
If its rattling.
I would shut it down...check the impellor is in its slot.
Your a hard man to please gadget man :lol:
What about this little external hang-on filter UK seller:arrow:...
Look here :arrow: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Japan-GEX-Ult ... 563cbc38f0
Only thing that annoys me about this hang-on filter is the pump goes...
Could be the connections onto the spraybar.
Can you not pack the filter with extra filter floss to slow down the turnover?
Is that Winnie the Poo :lol: :lol: :crazy:
Would I need to fill the extra space, approx 5 litres, with anything else? Or could I leave it empty?
Leave it empty if you pack more media in it...
What about this

Expensive though...for what you need.
No problem :wink:
