IS there an Filter , with auto priming ?

I am not sure that this is a thing , but is there a filter were I can just push a button one time and the priming happens. For some reason priming is always an issue for me , no matter how many times I do it .

Thanks in advance.

These canisters prime with one good press of the priming button. I fill mine with treated water, pop the top on, shove the button once and it does the rest.
These are now my favorite canisters- they come in a range of sizes, with and without uv clarifiers (not sterilisers) and are easy to maintain. Not like my pain in the neck classic eheim

Fluval 06 series of canisters have a simple self priming feature. I have the 106 and 306...great canisters!

I've had one of them for about 18 months, and preferred it to my other brand name canisters, so I have bought a few more since then. I love the baskets and the fact that you can put a lot of varied media in them, the quick stop valve, and the single push primer.
I'm pretty hard on the gear, and I haven't broken any parts so far, and I haven't had any leaks or malfunctions (though I did with my eheim, when the clips failed and the top popped up).
I didn't use most of the media that came with the filters- I have a preference for Matrix, sponges, filter fibre and purigen
