    Default Ehiem spray bar

    I've got a Ehiem 2217 and it is a dream. The only problem I've encountered is that the spray bar is very flimsy and I've had to build a contraption to hold it steady on the tank. Otherwise, it comes loose and sprays water everywhere and even makes waves in the tank. The vinyl tubing does not like to bend around the edge of the tank.

    Does Ehiem offer a more sound attachment device? I am thinking of running to home depot and getting some pvc pipe to design my own. I don't think they make pvc that small.
