I need help with the filter i got it from my grandfather and i have never used one before and i want to know if it is running properly.

I have it connected and the breathrr tube is out of the water but the wet and dry part on the back is filling up almost to the top then the fome in side lifts up and water drops the part of the foam that has the cut out and lifts up but the water comeing out of  the outlet is very slow

It's a flushing filter. The water level rises and falls to fully utilise all the biomedia surface. The rising water pushes old air out to maximize oxygenation. So it sounds like it's working well. The eheim canisters have slow flow rate in comparison to other brands but this doesn't affect their fish load / tank volume capacity.
