Never used Ehiem 2026 from 2001-Still Good?
My name is Stephanie. This is my first post here. I was into planted tanks in the late 90s and was planning for an awesome 75 gallon tank in 2001. I had all my equipment purchased. Life events happened and I never set the tank up. Now in 2013 I want to get back into the hobby. I have a never used Ehiem 2026 bought in August of 2001 from an online retailer. Should I trust the internal parts of this after all these years? This thing is still not put together. Perfectly clean in the box. I don't want the thing ruining my carpet and floors though.
Also, can I trust old heaters and powerheads bought around the same time? Or should I just buy all new?
