[APD] Re: Eheim ECCO
I've got the ECCO as well but don't have to unplug the unit before closing
the valves. It's a great little filter, and both quite (I sleep next to it)
This is what I do to work on it:
I first unplug the unit, then shut off both valves. Move the lever down to
the half way mark to release the pressure. Then I can unscrew the valves
from the head and push the lever down all the way to open it. Give that a
try. It's probably better for the motor...
