2262 - Still the BEST!

by
Reviewers Rating Excellent!

Comments: German fit and finish, this is the very best! I've owned the Fluvals, etc. and this is far and away the superior product. Spend a bit more and get something that will outlast and out perform anything else out there. The upgrade pump for the #2262 amps up the output significantly making the filter a much better performer. Only complaint: Spare parts can break the bank and are hard to find.

Comments: I have four Eheim 211s on Mr. Aqua nano aquariums, and they perform quite well. I only need to clean them twice a year, because I also micron filter my aquariums weekly with a Magnum HOT 250 canister filter. I own several filters including both canister and HOBs, and I have always found the Eheim 2211 to be one of the better canister filters on the market. They are very durable, whisper quiet, and given their diminutive size easy to handle when it comes to cleaning them. Highly recommended.

Disappointing

Comments: I had EHEIM filters before but obviously the quality of product and service has gone down the gutter. I bought the 2115 in May and it worked well for a couple of months and now I had to replace more parts than it is even worth. And the costumer service is lacking - The website has no useful information since they transfer you to the contact page in Germany (good luck getting an answer there) and the calling number in North America(in Canada, not the US)is full of my messages they never answer. I am tired of poor service and worse customer service. Get another brand because this one is done.

Comments: Using it on a 55 gallon freshwater and so far so good. Instructions are poor but a little common sense will get you through installation. Really easy to clean, and it is virtually silent.

Comments: Dead silent. Quietest piece of equipment I have on my 40 breeder (except fanless led light). Have to touch it or watch water movement to know it is on. It is sitting under the tank. Stand is 36 inches tall and still moves plenty of water.

Comments: It's an eheim classic, proven design and works great when it isn't packed horribly shipped to you and has a hinge chipped off of it. Eh I'm sure it will work fine but ill think twice before ordering anything heavyish from here again.

Comments: I have previously utilized a canister filter as a sump water vacuum. Yes I said vacuum. I recently setup a Nano Reef aquarium (with live rock in the sump) and was in need of a way to remove detritus. I find the Eheim nimble enough to allow me sufficient maneuverability i.e. it is not too large to obstruct my access (lean over the canister) to my sump. The discharge and input tubing us soft enough to permit flexing to access all parts of my sump. I would have given this product 5 stars but find the pump motor a bit underpowered.
