I have the Eheim Ecco 2233. Now, I only purchased
it this past year, but I've had no problems, and I'm still

the syphon on this filter after cleaning it, you just re-
attach the quick-connect valves that it comes with. Then
you turn them to the open position, and just slowly raise
the handle above the filter. That's it, the water starts
flowing into the canister, ala gravity, and pushes the air
out the filter return pipe. It's really simple to do, once

and loves it. After decades of fishkeeping, this is the
first filter she's ever raved about. It's quiet, and works
I would recommend you buy some of the long flexible
brushes they sell to clean the tubing with, though.
