The Eheim 2217 Canister Filter has a compact
pump coupled with a large volume canister for filter media. The filter is for
aquariums up to 159 gallons with a maximum pump performance of 264 gph and
delivery head of 7 foot and 6 inches. It is extremely quiet, durable and long
lasting. It provides high pump output and effective use of filter media for
fresh or saltwater aquariums.
The "Full Space" design of Eheim's canister allows it to large amounts of filter
media while making it more versatile. The filter comes complete with a safety
hose-connection system to stop separation, all the filter medias needed to set
up the filter, intake and outtake tubes, and double isolating valves. The Eheim
2217 is UL and CSA listed.
EHFIMECH should be used at the bottom suction area. It provides mechanical
filtration. Next is a Coarse Filter Pad. The next layer of EHFISUBSTRAT will act
as the main biological filter medium. The substrate's high porousity is ideal
for bacteria colonization and ensures unbeatable long term decomposition of
Ammonia and Nitrites. Next is a Fine Filter Pad and a carbon pad. Chemi-pure can
be used as a replacement for the Carbon Pad for chemical filtration (10oz per 50
gallons) for freshwater aquariums. Depending upon the desired water quality, the
layers of filter media can be increased. Specific water treatment can also be
achieved with an individual filter media arrangement.
Filter: 8" diameter x 16" high
Tubing: 495 (5/8") tubing for intake.
