Cleaning your filter system is so easy with the Eheim Double Tap Quick Release from Pet Store. This is a disconnection coupling that enables you to separate the tubes quickly, using an on-and-off valve each. The double taps enable you to clean and maintain your filter without the mess.
This double tap gadget is installed on the water intake and output area, preferably as close to the filter as possible. The hoses can be swiftly separated in just a flick of the valve, and immediately the filter can be detached and cleaned. This quick-release action can be done with only one hand and thus is so easy to do especially when you are holding on to other gadgets at the time. The double tap is made of sturdy non-corrosive material. It is engineered to allow the flow of water and to seal it when needed. It can be used in any position, regardless if you like to set it up horizontally or vertically. It works well in conditions where the pipe can be easily aligned properly.
The Eheim Double Tap Quick Release measures 0.65 to 0.90 inches in diameter. This tool is good for repairs or cleaning purposes and is highly recommended by experts in doing maintenance jobs. It enables you to save time and money as it helps you clean filters faster.

Exactly what was needed

I bought two (one was a 0.5/0.65 inch) of these to attach to an Eheim 1250 pump. These work perfectly, to allow me to remove the pump for cleaning without removing all the tubing in the aquarium. Look good, easy to attach and use.

Eheim Double Tap Quick Releas
Posted: 4/14/2008 from SAINT LOUIS, MO UNITED STATES
Eheim plumbing is solid, very heavy gauge plastic. I replaced this only because the sealing O-rings that are part of the valves in my old units finally became leaky after about 10 years of service. Granted it would be nice if one could replace just the large and small O-rings but the sealed design prevents this and the lifespan is very long.

The best quick release on the aquarium market but insanely overpriced. Someobdy at Eheim wants to retire early, I guess.
