I didn't know you could unscrew the caps. There's no epoxy on there? After 5 years or so, my bioballs have a ton of detritus on them that I wouldn't mind cleaning out.

I would get a 2217. Keep the 2215 in reserve. I personally would not want the extra clutter of two filters for a 46gal.

I remember way back when I had an AquaClear HOB filter, I replaced the impeller with the next model up. Not sure if you can do that but maybe something to look into.

I agree, get the jbj bubble counter (built-in check valve) and ideal valve from sumo. They can sell you any of the step-down/joining hardware you need if you let them know.
