well most of the eheim's have 5/8"(16/22) inlets and 1/2"(12/16) outlets. Thats what the 2026 came with stock.

So you need the 17mm/13mm lily pipe set, its 1mm larger so the hoses make a tight fit

hi,
i measure it and both are 16/22MM. and you can tell cause the IN and OUT HOLES from the PUMP HEAD are the same size. so that means i should get both 17MM right?
thank you.

Oh, your correct, it seems the info pages I looked at showed different, but the manual says it has 16mm hose on both ends.

So yes you need both 17mm intake and exit

heres info:
