I have an Eheim Classic 2217. I love the quiet filter, but hate the flimsy-cheapie double tap connectors. Mine is only about a month old, and the output side had to be removed due to a leak.

I'll retire my Eheim # to the next person as I no longer have any Eheims.

#343 Up for grabs

I have an Eheim Classic 2215. I actually am not that impressed with it thus far. Very noisy, I think I have some sort of air leak as I can get the air out but it comes back. I plan to replace the intake tubing and hope it works. Frustrating for my first canister filter.

I guess I am #382

Is it new or used?

A lot of times it's air that is trapped in the new sponges and bio-media. Make sure there are no leaks and if it's air tight, just give it a shake when you hear the gurgling. This will dislodge the trapped air bubbles and hopefully bring them up and out of the filter.

If it's used and has been determined to be air tight. I would check to see if the impeller needs to be replaced.

It was bought new. It is now about a month old. I have shaked it plenty and it will get rid of air but the air comes back after awhile (atleast I think it is air). That's why I think I may have a very small leak. I have never had it to the point it wasn't making any noise though, it always sounds like it has air in it, I can only get it quieter before it comes back.
