Hi Mark,you know i must be getting stupid in my old age looked on there and didnt notice it,cheers mate johnsaintly said:
Hi Garuf,do you use a eden 501? i just want something small for a dennerle nano,regards john.Garuf said:You can but unless you already have the eden I would get an eheim or a hydor as the edens are really very gutless.
Garuf said:I do indeed, have been for a good 12months, they're temprimental little beasts.
The biggest problems I've come across are:
Impeller shaking its self lose then rattling its head off and being a sod to get lined back up.
Impeller falling out without warning.
The top seal perishing.
having to clean the media once a week to keep flow good.
No room to add purigen
replaced the media for eheim balls lost about 30% of the flow.
Not capable of having it underneath the tank and difficulty in putting intake and outtake next to each other as a result.
Randomly being airlocked for no reason what so ever and not pumping any water at all.
The whole impeller assemble came lose once and I thought it was dead only to find that when I stripped everything back and cleaned it a build up of mulm had blocked everything up.
Thats fair mate, i'm only relaying my experiences tooGaruf said:Odd that you say that, a lot of people I've spoken to who have used them have found them feeble and had quality issues all of which center around the impeller. I shalt argue, just saying my experience over the last 18 months (I checked my account) and I wouldn't buy another nor could I recommend one with a clear conscious.
