 Despite  being  written  off  as  stupid,  my  doubt  is  in  case  of  powercut  will  Eheim  2217  have  to  be  reprimed.  I  had  this  problem  with  my  Aquaclear  for  some  time.On  some  net  research,  I  found  the  difference  with  the  Classic  and  the  Professional  being  the  self  priming  feature,  clean-up  indicator  and  the  shape  which  makes  it  more  stable.  If  priming  is  an  issue  during  power-cuts  then  my  choice  would  be  the  professional  series.  Senior's  please  advice.

 Eheim  2217  does  not  need  to  be  primed  after  a  power  cut.
 
 The  reason  being,  the  suction  and  discharge  tubes  along  with  the  filter  canister  are  full  of  water  even  when  the  motor  stops  pumping  during  a  power  cut.  The  filter  will  start  up  and  circulate  water  as  normal.
 
 I  think  the  difference  between  the  professional  and  classic  model  is  that  there  is  an  arrangement  in  the  professional  model  (2217  which  I  haven't  seen)  to  fill  the  filter  with  water  after  a  cleaning.  In  the  classic  model  you  have  to  prime  the  filter  by  filling  it  with  water  after  a  cleaning.
 
 I  have  2  Eheim  2028  Professional  II  filters  (these  have  a  self  priming  arrangement)  and  the  other  4  are  2213,  2215,  2217  classic  models.  I  just  cleaned  all  of  them  today.  Very Happy  
 
 I  haven't  seen  a  2217  Professional  model,  that  you  seem  to  indicate.

 Dear  Madan,  
 Thanks  for  the  info    .  There  is  no  profesional  2217  definitely.  I  was  implying  the  professional  equivalent.  
 I  think  2217  comes  out  as  a  clear  winner  and  as  a  value  for  money

 Ganesh!
 
 The  prime  difference  that  you  are  looking  for  is:
 
 In  the  Aquaclear,  the  filter  is  above,  and  hangs  in  the  tank,  whereas  the  Eheim  is  below  the  tank.
 
 Once  you  use  an  Eheim  cannister,  you  will  know.
 
 As  the  Aquaclear  has  a  U  shaped  tube,  water  is  siphoned  back  to  the  tank,  when  you  stop  it.  Whereas  in  the  Eheim,  when  you  stop  it,  water  is  retained  in  the  filter.
 
 So,  once  you  restart  it  after  a  powercut,  an  Eheim  works  like  a  charm!

 Dear  Nitin,
 Got  my  Eheim2217  Cheering    and  installed  the  same.  While  installing  I  noticed  that  it  was  mentioned  in  the  instructions  that  the  carbon  pad  should  be  removed  after  about  3weeks.  Any  idea  why?
 Should  I  do  the  same  or  just  take  it  out  as  instructed  and  is  their  any  particular  method  of  storing  the  same.
 thanks,
 ganesh  Thumb Up

 Hi,
 
 As  long  as  the  top  of  the  Eheim  is  lower  than  the  tank  water  level,  it  will  work  well.  Water  has  to  flow  down  thro  gravity  to  Eheim,  which  will  then  pump  it  back  to  the  tank.  Try  to  keep  it  below  the  tank  if  possible.
