I have a 2211, but I don't think I'm an Eheim pimp, since mine is a loud, humming, nightmare . . .

Bought the $20 can of Eheim lube on my way home from work . . . if that doesn't work, I'll look into ordering a new impeller. The woman at Albany Aquarium said the same thing.

I have my 2213's basket removed and replaced it with lattice. It gives more room for medias and no by pass.

It least it's not a $30,000 new car messing up. That happens too. Nothing is perfect.

Most Eheim owners will tell you it's pretty unusual to have problems let alone on a new one.

Check the impeller and make sure nothing got into it. Han's might have had a few cold ones while putting this one together.

I'll join too. I have the ff:

- 2 x Eheim 2226
- 1 x Eheim 2028
- 2x Eheim 2228
- surface extractor
- Eheim automatic feeder
- Eheim internal filter big & small
- An Eheim classic older than the 2217. I have to find the model number on it. It has the motor exposed on it.

Didn't notice till now that i have that much eheim stuff already....lol...

Does this make me Eheim pimp club member #451? :-)

I say this with no lewd intentions: lube rocks! Sprayed everything with the über expensive Eheim lube and now the hum is almost imperceptible. *insert happy dance here* I suppose this makes me Eheim pimp # 452.
