Cutting the spray bar on my eheim 2215

Hi all! I recently purchased an Eheim classic 2215 for my 55 gallon tank. Due to my space being limited, I need to have the spray bar along the side of my aquarium, but it is a little too long. Is anyone aware of any issues with cutting it a couple inches shorter to accommodate this issue? Thanks!

The flow could end up being a little to strong. But if that's the case, just drill the opening to a few or all the spray bar holes bigger, to get the flow to where you want it.

Very cool, thanks. The excessive water flow was my main concern, I'd have never thought to just drill bigger holes.

Just add back however many spray holes you need to remove to shorten it. There is plenty of space between the holes to add more.
