No instructions- need help.

Hi all I just took delivery of this big beast:

It's an Odyssea cfs 1000. It didn't come with instructions enclosed, or even printed on the plain brown box. I have had no luck googling for instructions, so I thought I'd ask here in case experience and common sense will serve just as well.

My problem is this:

The intake valve is leaking. I have heard that these break really easily, so without instructions I'm not game to try and take it off to see if the o-ring is seated properly. I believe the valves are similar in design to the fluval fx5?

If anyone can give advice on how to perform maintenance and how best to fill it with media it will be GREATLY appreciated!
