Eheim Filter... HELP!?!

Hey... I recently aquired a great big tank from someone... (this person is not available to me for questions) and this tank came with an EHEIM 2217 canister filter.

Problem is... it came with all kinds of other tubes, and powerheads, and misc cylinders.. and I dunno what goes with what...

I've got rena xp filters on other tanks... so.. no experience with the eheim...

What I need to know is what the part list is for the ehiem... what it needs to run... what connects to what - Obviously there is no users manual here...

So... iS tHERE aNYone OUT tHERE wITH tHE USERS mANUAL ?? who could maybe scan a diagram or two for me?? Something? I just need a kickstart to get this thing together.... any help of anysort would be great...

otherwise im gonna give it away and get an xp3... would be nice but I'd rather not...

Thanks for reading!!

Jared

Hi Jared, I've got a 2217 running but don't know if I kept the manual.

Was this up and running before? If so, all the tubing should be in place. Fool with it a bit to get it running. That's a great filter!!!
