eheim 2217 canister filter died

Recommended Posts

The magnet that drives the impeller split in two and has now become jammed inside its housing. I'm toying with the idea of buying a power head and just using the canister as somewhere to hold the media while the power head blasts the water through. The main reason for this is that Eheim parts are expensive and I was advised that even if I get the magnets out it can't be guaranteed that the filter will still work. at least if this Idea fails I will still have a power head that I can use. Has anyone tried this? good Idea or not? If it is what size PH should I be going for since I believe that the water flow will be reduced significantly by passing through the mediums in the canister.
