The Eheim 2262 Canister Filter's powerful pump coupled with the large volume canister
and correct filter media arrangement, guarantees the highest effectiveness and
above average service life. This large capacity external filter is for aquariums
up to approximately 400 gallons with a maximum pump performance of 396 gph. It
is extremely silent, maintenance free and water-resistant. It provides high pump
output and effective use of filter media for fresh or saltwater aquariums.
The "Full Space" design of Eheim's canister allows it to hold more
filter media than other filters while making it more versatile. The filter comes
complete with a safety hose-connection system to stop separation and 7 foot
of tubing, suction cups, intake tube with strainer, return spray bar, and line
elbows. The silent working pump is maintenance-free and wear-resistant. The
filter's cover features heavy duty clamps that are practical locking devices.
The carrying handles allow for easy maintenance. The filter is a standard design
form Eheim. The water enters at the bottom and exits the canister out the top.
The Eheim 2262 is UL and CSA listed.
EHFIMECH (5L) should be used at the bottom suction area. It provides mechanical
filtration. The next layer of EHFISUBSTRAT or EHFILAV (15L) will act as the
main biological filter medium. The substrate's high porousity is ideal for bacteria
colonization and ensures unbeatable long term decomposition of Ammonia and Nitrites.
EHFIFIX (5L) should be placed on top with a thickness of approximately 1 inch
as the final filter medium layer. It is a coarse media for fine mechanical and
biological filtration. Ehfisynth (2L) can also be used for fresh or saltwater
and should be replaced each time the filter is cleaned. It is a synthetic filter
wadding for capturing fine dirt particles. Chemi-pure (1 for every 50 gallons)
can be used for chemical filtration for freshwater aquariums. Depending upon
the desired water quality, the layers of filter media can be increased. Specific
water treatment can also be achieved with an individual filter media arrangement.
Warranty: The filter has a 2 year guarantee.
