Eheim Canister Filter Set Up
Setting up an Eheim canister filter is very easy and we find the easiest way is just the old fashion way of doing it. We will show you how to set up your Eheim canister filter in 5 easy steps. This set up works for new and existing Eheim canister filters.
Set up a canister filter
Make sure your Eheim canister filter and hoses are completely empty of water
Make sure all hoses are connected
Place the intake (where water comes into the filter from) completely under water
Suck on the end of the hose where water comes back into tank until you feel the siphon begin. (Remove the spray from the end to do this)
Once the canister filter and hoses are all full of water turn the filter on your Eheim and it is all set up and ready to go.
- Ensure there are not any air leaks from any of the joins.
- Make sure impellar and impellar housing is clean
