Hi all

I think my Ehiem filter is due for some maintenance. It came with a little packet of grease which I used up last time.

Rather than order a little packet of 'special Eheim grease' which will probably cost something ridiculous for about 3g of it, does any use anything else (dont want to experiment and upset the fish)

Just in case you need it http://www.atomicrice.com make replacement o rings for the 2026/2028 primer assembly. My primer was stuck when I bought it 2nd hand and on releasing it, the O ring stretched and didn't fit anymore. I have just ordered 2 (just in case!).
Hope you don't need it though :D

silicon grease will last longer than vasaline and mostlikely is wat that little packet has in it.

Thanks guys

thanks misscaretaker for that link!

I have used normal vaseline before and it goes claggy and builds up - I think it's too thick.

Where do you get silicone grease from?
