 hello  friends,
 I  want  to  bring  into  your  attention  that  I  have  been  using  eheim  2217  on  my  existing  fish  tank  since  one  month,  but  now  water  flow  rate  has  been  reduced  to  half  what  I  was  getting  before.
 tank  is  4'*2'*1.5'  bare  bottom  tank  with  4gold  fish(1.5  yrs  age),  tank  is  1.5  yrs  old,  at  the  time  of  tank  setup,  I  was  using  DOPHIN1600  but  I  was  not  happy  with  its  performance  so  around  a  month  ago  I  replaced  dophin  with  new  eheim  2217.
 along  with  2217  I  am  using  DIY  top  filter  powered  with  eheim  compact1000  pump.
 2217  and  and  diy  top  filter  has  got  coarse  sponge,  fine  sponge  seachem  matrix,  eheim  substrat   pro  and  one  bag  of  purigen  in  top  filter.
 well  for  past  one  month  filtration  was  on  fool  swing,  water  was  pristine  clear.
 I  was  away  from  home  and  wen  I  returned  after  some  6  days  I  found  reduced  flow  rate  of  2217,  well  I  opened  up  the  2217  and  cleaned  the  media  and  replaced  the  filthy  sponge.
 after  reassembling  and  confirming  priming,  I  started  2217,  but  I  found  flow  to  be  low,
 flow  is  really  very  low.
 
 now  the  diagnosis  part.
 1)  I  confirmed  the  priming  by  unplugging     outlet  pipe  from  2217,  water  was  flowing  free  with  no  bubbles  or  air  ..
 I  shook  2217  to  remove  air  if  trapped  in  pump  head  region,  well  no  success
 
 2)  reopened  2217  checked  impeller  ,  shaft  ,  bushes,  all  were  good  and  clean
 
 3)  removed  all  media  and  sponges  ,   kept  the  canister  empty  and  retried  to  fire  up  the  2217,  but  still  the  same  flow  rate
 
 4)  opened  again  ,  checked  impeller  ,  magnet  and  impeller  are  moving  together,  I  mean  no  problem  of  joint,  yes  impeller  and  magnet  has  little  play,  well  that  is  by  virtue  of  design.
 
 5)  removed  all  pipes  ,  strainers  ,  cleaned  them  thoroughly,  now  its  confirmed  that  pipe  lines  are  clear,  valves  are  clear  and  working  properly,  filter  sponges  are  clear  and  media  too.  return  spray  bar  is  clear.  its  diy  long  spry  bar.
 
 6)  did  confirm  priming,  attached  garden  hose  direct  to  suction  pipe(strainer)  and  waited  till  water  started  to  flow  through        return  spray  bar.  this  eliminates  chances  of  air  trapped  inside  pump  region  of  2217.
 
 
 now  friends  m  in  trouble.  m  loosing  quality  of  water  ,  dirt  can  be  seen  in  water  column,  
 well  I  will   do  partial  water  change  tomorrow  .
 but  what  should  I  do  to  solve  the  problem.
 kindly  help
 thanks  a  ton
 regards

 Check  if  something  is  stuck  in  the  region  between  where  the  impeller  pushes  the  water  and  it  comes  out  of  the  pump  head.

 Have  you  tried  running  the  EHEIM  without  any  filter  media  inside  it  and  then  compare  the  output.
 Just  to  avoid  dirt  clogging  the  impeller  ,  leave  just  one  sponge  inside  and  try.
