¿Para what size aquarium filter Eheim Classic serves 250?

This filter is specially designed (by manufacturer) Aquarium between 80 liter aquarium 250 liters, a flow 440 liters / hour. Remember that liters indicating the aquarium manufacturers They are somewhat indicative, because we will never fill to the brim, and for filtration must take into account the actual liters, so that an aquarium 250, you can stay in an aquarium 220 gallons less.

Filtering capability of the filter Eheim 2213

There is an important point for calculate the true performance of a filter: filter media and the filter volume.

  • A greater number of filter materials, the lower the current performance of the filter. It's not the same place a sponge foamex and biological materials, also add, perlon and activated carbon. It is obvious, the pump will need to exert less pressure, as the amount of material to pass through the filter is less.
  • Another detail not have much in mind, it is the filter volume. In the case of the filter Eheim 2213 is three liters helpful. There are filters that claim to have one liter performance 600 l/h, but then they have a filter volume so 500ccâ € |si, the water must pass through the filter at a rapid speed, greatly reducing the ability of the filter to retain dirt.

Current filter capacity

summarizing, With all this we could say that Traditional filter Eheim 250, You can have a capacity of current filtering in the environment around 400 liters / hour. If we use the unwritten rule, a filter should be able to recirculate three times when, the total volume of an aquarium, we have to This filter will be more efficient in an aquarium of one hundred twenty to 200 liters, considering that in no case will be completely filled. This point is somewhat controversial, because it depends on many circumstances, as is the density of fish in the aquarium and especieâ € |los goldfish are usually very dirty, so that they require superior filterability, while others may need a smaller fish.

Installation and commissioning of the filter Eheim Classic 250

To learn how to start the filter Eheim 2213, First let's familiarize ourselves with the component parts:

  • Pump head
  • Filter vessel
  • The coupling, pressure side
  • The coupling, suction side
  • Basket filter materials
  • Suction tube
  • Artichoke
  • Suction cups with retaining clips
  • Lead out
  • Nozzle tube


The first that we have to do, before starting the first filter, it is thoroughly clean the entire filter materials. Remove the filter basket with loads. To access the basket, gets the filter by the handle and turn the lid to the left.

You can find the filter (on stock), It comes with two types of filter media, version with filter pads or filter media version.

Version with filter pads

Rinse under running water all pads and place one to one, according to the following diagram:

Order pads: (a) 5 blue sponges, (b) a thin sponge white cotton and (c) a pad of activated carbon. Activated carbon pad serves to eliminate noxious substances that may derive from the initial assembly of the filter. To the 15 days must be removed and remove.

Version with filter media

Fill the basket with the filter materials supplied. Follow the following order: (a) 3 a 5 cm the Eheim Mech (b) blue sponge pad (c) Eheim professional substrate o substrate (d) pad fine white cotton (e) thin pad of activated carbon.

Once assembled basket, rinsed with running water to remove any residue that may remain in the filter materials.

  • Place the pump head on the filter. It is not easy to move board, but check that is in place, before closing clips securing the filter pump.

Start up, priming the filter Eheim

Before starting the filter, we must proceed to priming. Priming is just filling with water the suction pipe and suction, preventing air pockets. The easiest way is to aspire for the outlet tube, but it is a bit uncomfortable. The option recommended by the manufacturer is use a primer bulb, or installation kit Eheim. Once primed, binds to the arc tube and the outlet tube. The pump motor can be connected only when the filter is filled with water. You may hear noises, caused by air trapped in the inside of the circuit, until they are expelled completely. Do not put the cap on the end of the outlet tube, until all the air has been expelled completely.

Cleaning and maintenance

The filters must be cleaned regularly, to remove debris and change filtering materials. The frequency of the task depends on the amount of dirt that accumulates filter. Note that:

  • Once the filter and the filter materials are cleaned or replaced, Make sure the water does not contain filter being connected back to the aquarium. The only water that must round the filter should be to the aquarium.
  • Purge outlet tube, to ensure that there is no water other than for the aquarium, but neither air. Open stopcocks, if you have them.
  • Once everything is back to be reconnected, the key opens at the suction port, so that the aquarium water flowing again. The remains of air will be expelled and we ensure proper priming.
