View Full Version : Problem with my canister filter (I'm a rookie)

02-22-2004, 11:32 PM

This is the first time I cleaned up my filter (Eheim Classic 2217 ?) and when I restarted it, the filter started making popping noises, sorta like a bag of popcorn in the microwave.

I'm pretty sure I primed it right - I got rid of most of the air, if not all of it.

Any ideas? Appreciate the input.

Thanks for the input. It turned out that there was extra air in the canister, even though the water flow was good. On top of that, the inlet tube was sucking in bubbles from a misplaced air stone. That caused a crackling sound. I'll watch out for this the next time.
