 When  you  clean  the  filter  or  install  it  the  first  time  you'll  have  to  suck  on  the  hose,  or  fill  the  suction  hose  with  water  to  start  the  siphon  and  let  water  into  the  filter.
 
 The  ones  with  self  prime,  the  P  II  range  2026,  2028,  and  P  III,  Ecco  models  have  a  priming  device  built  in  to  the  filter.

(2)  What  is  back  wash  and  its  importance                

 
 You  allow  water  in  for  a  short  time  from  the  outlet  side  and  drain  from  the  inlet  side.  Clears  debri  and  allows  longer  periods  between  dismantling  for  cleaning.

(3)  What  is  media  container  as  only  2213  has  it.                

 
 It  is  a  plastic  internal  bucket  completely  enclosed  with  a  self  locking  lid.
 Basically  needed  due  to  filter  design.

(4)  Comments  from  people  who  using  them.                

 
 Eheim  rocks!

(5)  Do  we  need  stabilizers,  etc.  for  these  punps                

 
 The  filters  are  expensive  and  I  use  6  of  them  of  various  sizes.  The  total  cost  is  a  lot.  I  have  invested  in  a  1KVA  servo  stabiliser  for  them  and  to  power  my  aquarium  lights  (MH),  which  used  to  conk  out  often  due  to  voltage  fluctuations.

 Ok  here  goes..
 Self  Priming  IMO  is  not  that  important.The  professional  series  eheim  have  a  buttom  which  you  press  and  the  filter  gets  filled  up  with  water.In  the  classic  range  u  have  to  do  it  manually...its  quite  simple  once  you  get  the  hang  of  it.
 Iam  using  a  2217  and  a  2260  for  my  flower  horn  and  oscar  tanks  and  i  dont  think  that  any  other  filter  can  do  a  job  as  good  as  these.There  are  just  no  media  bypass  in  these  filters.
 U  dont  need  a  stabilizer  for  them.For  a  tank  your  size  u  need  a  2215  or  2217  with  the  spray  bar  facing  the  back  glass

 Go  for  the  classic  2215  canister  filter  as  currently  the  dealer  is  offering  free  gifts  consisting  attachments  and  different  types  of  filter  medias  worth  US$40  with  2215  and  US$50  with  22217,for  the  size  of  the  tank  you  are  mentioning  I  think  2215  would  be  the  ideal  one  as  I  myself  have  ordered  the  2215  filter,  which  is  expected  to  arrive  by  end  this  week....

 What  happens  when  there  is  a  power  goes,  do  you  have  to  prime  it  again?

 Water  short  circuiting  to  the  outlet  bypassing  the  media  due  to  poor  design,  construction,  material  of  the  filter.
 
 The  Eheim  filter  system  will  remained  primed  once  you  start  it  up.  Power  outage  will  not  affect  it.

 You  don't  get  such  long  tubing  with  the  Eheim.  However  you  can  buy  normal  nylon  12  mm  hose  and  use  that.
 
 Place  the  filter  on  a  stool  or  some  such  thing  if  you  don't  want  to  buy  extra  tubing.
 
 There  will  be  no  other  issue  however.

 No  it  should  not  be  an  issue  one  bit...only  problem  i  see  is  that  the  pipes  might  not  be  that  long  so  you  would  have  to  place  the  filter  on  a  stool  or  something

 Check  the  tool  height  to  be  lower  than  the  water  level  though    Very Happy    .  The  input  works  on  siphon  system.

 I  would  suggest  not  to  use  the  spraybar  provided.  Just  place  the  outlet  pipe  draining  water  on  the  back  or  side  glass.
