    This was my first Eheim canister filter. I am happy with this canister. It arrived in good condition, was simple to set up and has good flow. I will purchase from Valuepetsupplies again. (Posted on 12/4/14)

  2. Overall very satisfied minus the instruction in another language! Review by Jordan
    Your Rating

    The product I ordered was great. I did the expedited shipping and it had arrived before I knew it. All the parts were there and nothing was damaged or missing. The only complaint I had was that the instructions were not in English. Fortunately, this is the second Eheim canister filter I've owned so I was familiar with it. I had never set one up so instead of the instructions I had to look it up on YouTube to set it up. It wasn't difficult but the best piece of advice I could give if you've never set one up is this. Once all the media has been washed and put in the canister, close off the tubes and fill it with water. In fact, over fill it. Then open the top tube switch just slightly as you are putting the top on. Try and keep as much water in the filter as possible.

    I would recommend this filter! (Posted on 11/30/14)

    This was our first time to use Value Pet Supplies, and we will be using them for all future purchases. Ordered on Wednesday evening and received an email on Thursday morning that shipment had already been made, delivered on Saturday! Packaged well, and very happy with my Ehiem 2217, it is whisper quiet. (Posted on 11/29/14)

  4. Best filter out there Review by Michael
    Your Rating

    Throughout the years I have a handful of the Eheim 2217 (and smaller) Canister Filters. I also used newer Eheim Filters and other competitor products and I will go back to the 2217 every time. It is, bar none, the most reliable filter out there. easy to maintain and easy to put up. Once in a while you have to replace the impeller, that's pretty much it. I NEVER had one of these filters leak (in contrast to other products). ValuePet Supplies got the filter shipped to me in 2 days at a very competitive price. Thank you, guys! I'll be back shopping with you!! (Posted on 11/7/14)

  5. THE BEST Review by yankeejoe
    Your Rating

    I've tried all the so called best on the market and always seem to come back to the Eheim's Canister. Simply to use, no problems, very easy to set up. I have the 2217 for a 55 gal tank and it gives me more then I need to keep my tank crystal clear. (Posted on 1/15/14)

  6. Good value Review by Brett
    Your Rating

    The Eheim 2217 is the best valued filter on the market. It has simple construction and is easy set-up. The hardest part is priming it (compared to my Fluval), but it wasn't difficult.
    Delivery was quick. (Posted on 11/3/13)

  7. Excellent Review by Scott
    Your Rating

    I prefer canister filters and have tried Filstar, Sicce and Eheim. Of the 3, Eheim classic filters are the easiest to install, have better design and run the longest with no problems. The Eheim classic has a simpler design than newer models and I find this to be easier to use and it also filters the water more efficiently. (Posted on 11/1/13)
