Anybody have a leak in this spot of their EHEIM?


Hello.

Eheim is about a month old and I am getting a leak in the red circled area. This only happens on the outflow connectors when I throttle the flow a little bit. It drips slowly. I tried taking it all apart but the part which I have circled in red does not seperate, at least to my knowledge.

thanks.

Yeah, mine does the same thing when I throttle it. Usually pressing in on the part fixes it.

Are any o-rings missing? It could be that the leak is coming from where the two pieces connect, but coming out in the circled area.

I have that same problem when I throttle down the flow. I replaced it once, but even the new connectors one leaked. I was wondering if anyone had this issue as well...

Mine was leaking and found that the o-ring was broken and so I replaced it and now it doesn't have a leak
