I just purchased a new 2215 and love it. It's quiet as a mouse.

So now that I have joined the club, what does it take to receive pimp status?

I think you just did . I wonder what could possibly been done on Eheim filters that make them so quiet and other companies can't duplicate them. It's not really rocket science.

Didn't Eheim make the booster pumps for the shuttle?

To make Eheim pimp status you have to tell everyone about them and how much better they are than all the leading brands and at every single opportunity.

Just like now, they are the Roller of the canister filter world, quiet, great looking, easy to maintain, designed for long duration, hardly ever breakdown.

So if you do something like that at every opportunity you can; you will be a real Eheim pimp just like me.

Mike's a pushover, anybody can be in the pimp squad according to him..
I'd like to join, I have a 2213 and a 2215 and they are the best cannisters around.. Does anybody else say eheim like they are shouting a german slogan?

I think we should establish some rules to be in the Eheim Pimp club. Personally I have been saying things about Eheim for years, had the filters for at least 17 years. Love all their products.

So now for rules, what does everybody think? And like George said we have to have the proof, maybe some pics of your filters.

One must walk around with a copy of their manual in their back pocket, like some sort of bible, which can be thrust out at a moments notice to attest to the worth of the mighty Eheim. :lol:

Come on lets see how crazy we can get.

Only a True Eheim Pimp would know that manual could quite possibly be the worst manual ever written.

Yes, but only the true pimp knows that the badly written manual is really coded to prevent the other canister users from ever understanding the real miracle of the Eheim equipment. Hallaloyah, praise be the Eheim in all its mighty splender and glory, long may it rain over the other inferior pieces of equipment.

Think I might go and sit in front of the shrine and make many praises to the Eheim God for giving me the forsight and good sense to purchase Eheim.

Some of us had to walk down the wrong path several times. I started with a HOB, went to a Magnum, then Fluval. Once I hooked up the Ehiem, I saw the error of my ways.
