Eheim water neutral maintenance spray.......only needs a small amount, so the spray lasts me for ages.
Not just rubber seals, but all moving parts.

Thats the stuff ive just got too. Eheim used to supply it with their filters but stopped it for some reason. As if the filters dont cost enough anyway ha ha

Though all the other Eheim filters say "Clean seal areas and spray lightly with EHEIM silicone grease spray (Order no. 4001000)."
