Exclamation Eheim diffuser needed!

Does anyone have an extra one? It's for a 2213. Mine fell behind the tank and somehow rolled totally out of reach under the cabinet next to the wall. I can't even see it. So now my tubing just flows into the tank without the diffuser sigh

Can anyone help?

You can wedge your tubing into the Eheim intake until you get a replacement diffuser, or grow smaller hands and longer arms to reach behind the cabinet.

yeah there is no way to reach the space between the woodwork and the lower cabinet -- but we can't even see it back behind there when we lie down and look from the side so it looks like it rolled under the cabinet

right now the outtake tube is just wedged in the suction area. i am just hoping someone happens to have a diffuser lying around that they don't need before I have to go see if I can buy one online

Are you talking about the spraybar for the return? If so, you should be okay without using it for a while.

yes that is exactly what I was talking about (couldn't remember the exact nomenclature). i was considering stopping up the tube with something and cutting holes in it if I can't find the spraybar or no one has an extra one.

I guess I'll check the Eheim site and see if I can just buy a replacement one if it is cheap.

Here is the stock Eheim one.

They make 2 different ones. it depends on the tube size.( 1/2 or 5/8 )
1/2 = 12/16mm 5/8= 16/22mm inside diameter

Talking hmm

You can also make one dirt cheap by visiting your local hardware store. You can make it even longer then if you like.
