How to setup an Eheim Classic canister filter

Postby Arijit » Thu Jul 04, 2013 7:29 pm

Hi friends, I want your help on setting up my EHEIM 2217... I have tried to search the net but could not get any pictorial description of the setup. I don't know how the completed product looks like so am having difficulty in assembling the pipes. Also do I need to cut the pipes?
A few pics demonstrating the joints and final placement of the inlet and outlet pipes should be highly helpful.
Thanks in advance for ur responses.

@Achintya I have checked this link before. But I wanted to see some pics of the whole assembled product. A more like pictorial description or photos of ur setup rather than a video.
PS:- I don't get to see videos properly with my net connection. :(

Can you send pics of the different parts and tag them with 1,2,3,4...etc. Then I can explain you. I am searching net for any installation guide.

Arijit, I did have a few pics on flickr. In office now, will try and look them up for you once I am back home.

If your tank has a tana then in all probability you will need to cut the pipe, else not required.

@Aninda, Am in duty right now so can't upload pics. I wanted to see pics of one complete setup of any member. Especially pics of the joints would help...

Thanks @Aninda. The 1st link (nocarrier.ca) is perfectly what I was looking for. Hope to setup by sunday. So it seems I have to cut the tubes 3times... To attach the inlet and the outlet tubes, and for the spray bar.
