Hi Guys,

I have an external filter that is placed to the side of the tank (still below it). I find that the hose keeps kinking in certain places, so i was wondering if anyone had ideas on how to prevent this?


thanks

The best thing to do is to cut the hose so it's a short as possible (leaving a bit of slack for movements and cleaning) so that there's less bends and areas that can kink and you have fairly stright runs to the filter and back.

Eheim use to make a bend that clipped on the outside of your piping to stop it kinking/compressing.

Not sure whether it is still available.
