Eheims built like tanks


Well I cleaned out one of my Eheims yesterday and found my water cloudy this morning. I investigated why and realized that I didn't re-open the valves on the filter intake line. I primed the filter really well so the filter pump didn't make that gurgling noise.

The filter is no worse for wear.

MORALS TO THE STORY:

Eheims are built great.

Do not get into the pre-dinner glass of vino until the job is complete.
