I used the spray bars for a long time but took them off about 8 months ago and will never go back to using them! I have Eheim canisters on all my tanks but find no use for spray bars whatsoever as they greatly reduce the flow by spreading it out too much to do any good. The surface agitation with a spray bar was never enough to eliminate surface scum anyway, I find it so much better to have one strong hose of water I can direct that will move water throughout the whole tank. Thinking back on it I can't believe I wasted so much time and effort on trying to make the dumb spray bars work, they shouldn't even be included with canisters - would rather get an intake extension instead.
