If its a classic chances are the top popped because you didn't close it right
Yes, it was absolutely operator error.
I have had classics before and I love eheim more than any other brand but the classic design is not great and its about 35 years old the design
Things have moved on a lot in 30 years so have filter design not saying the classic doesn't do its job but its not very user friendly
No doubt, but this is my first canister, so it is not surprising that I chose poorly.
But if it was me and I was scared of a filter I would sell it as there is always a market for eheim classics and buy a cheap used eheim pro or even better a pro 2 they are much more simple to maintain compared to the classic
When it comes time to buy one for my 36 I will know more, thank you.
As for the missing part to connect the pipe to the spray bar why not buy another one eheim parts are very easy to come by
I did. It should be here Tuesday, thank you
Nice tank by the way
Thank you very much. It is a start.
I have no idea why a pic of a double tap has come at the bottom of my post
