Question Cheap filtration for 29g

Well my Eheim canister filters are not pumping water. Can't afford to buy a new 1 now for car repair comes 1st.

Any suggestions for a cheap filtration system?

hmm... I don't think you can find any cheap filtration system, and I always suggest don't buy any cheap filtration system. It can harm your fish health. However, if you have a money problem then visit some nearest shop, hope there you can find some cheap filtration system.

Try this: https://www.breeder.direct/ This is a new business that specializes in buying and selling used equipment. Their inventory changes quickly, so call or email to see what is available. I think they will ship non-livestock items.

If you can figure out what part of the filter isn't working, you can buy replacement parts on amazon or something. Cheaper than buying a new system.

What I need is the bucket for my Eheim ecco 2232.I can't find it. Eheim company tells me their items are sold on Big Als Pets. Got my Eheim 2213 working and decided to complement it with a powerhead which will have a prefilter added to it.

When a filter pump, powerhead, etc. stops working you can often just remove the rotor in the pump and clean it good, and it will work fine. Those pumps need regular cleaning, as a general rule.

Well the bucket needs replacing, for the handle will not stay on due to some plastic where the clip hangs on is chipped. Not certain if that is the only thing wrong with it. Last time I tried to use it the water back flowed.

Well today I decided to call Eheim and they had a return so I was able to buy the bucket.

Well my problem with Eheim 2213 started after I cleaned the inside. Thus took everything apart and put it back together and it worked. Possibly still some gunk stuck in it. Got to clean it more often.
