Can you adjust the flow on the Eheim 2026? If so, how?
Just wondering, b/c I heard 2028 users said that they can adjust their flow.

yes you can, you just pull on the handle that is used for the disconnects and adjust your flow that way.

Thanks! Too bad mine is already cranked up all the way. Is cranking down the filter a practice that Eheim approved of?

Yes. The approved Eheim way is to use the disconnect valve as George described. The mechanism is the same as on the 2028. The only difference is between the 2028 and 2026 is size/flow and the extra media tray in the 2028.
