I purchased a barely used second hand Eheim 2217; it's missing the hoses and a "valve". Probably the reason I got such a good price on it.

I tried ebay and amazon without success.

Where should I look for that I could pay with paypal? Some online stores require billing/mailing address to coincide and/or demand billing address in US which isn't my case.

Is it safe to run it with adapted parts?

Here is a trick you can use to sometime save some money on Eheim parts.

Once you find the actual part number on the Eheim site, go a Google or similar internet search on it. Sometimes you will find an online vendor selling the part for a lot less.

The hoses should be ok to replace with locally available ones. The quick disconnect valve is what you want to source somewhere or from another member. If it's the 2217, which side is it that you're missing? The intake is 5/8", the outtake hose is 1/2".

Normally I'd send you to
http://dealsforyourpets.com/eheimreplacementparts.aspx

I have ordered from them and been completely satisfied with the order. I've not gotten replies to email questions. That might complicate your getting an answer without ordering first.

The filter arrived Friday but I couldn't pick it up. I'll see what exactly is missing tomorrow Monday and get back to you all.

Thanks for the help!
