Believe it or not, this comes from one of my pro2028 Eheim pro II filter. To be honest, I notice that this unit is making quite some noise of late and it always leaked whenever I turn off power to the unit…anyway, I got itchy fingers on saturday to change the media in my filter and fish out some baby shrimps….and it turn out to be a 6 hours ordeal for me, 2 trips to seaview to get impeller and and on the 2nd trip, the o-ring.
Thankfully, my wife was taking her afternoon siesta, I would imagine I would end up in her frog porridge for dinner. The entire living room was wet and not to mention so super messed up. And boy, I swear if I ever buy a second hand filter again, I will demand that I get a discount equivalent of the o-ring cost before I make the purchase, better safe than sorry. Having a leaky filter is not a funny affair.
