Just got my Eheim 2217 in the mail!

I am pumped can't wait to set this bad boy up! The 2217 is much larger than I had envisioned. Looks like a beast!


My boy can't wait to get his hands on the box!


Does anyone know if there is a post with actual instructions for a first time canister filter user. The instructions included seem ....lacking!

Lacking is an understatement! Welcome to the world of eheim...where there filters rock but only if you already know how to use them. LOL....all first-time eheim users wonder just where the heck the instructions are.

I recently purchased an eheim for the first time as well. Like you, I was frustrated with the lack of instructions (or at least worthwhile instruction) in the package so I ended up youtubing the filter model and found great installation videos on how to start up the filter.

Pearling.....it's way overrated.

+1 for Youtube.

The included "instructions" are beyond worthless! LOL

+1 you tube. Gives good tips for priming (which is easy) and tube lengths.
