Product Manuals & Documentation

Part #: 2232370

Energy saving, powerful, extremely efficient, and convenient. With only 5 Watt power consumption and a pump output of 130 gph, the Ecco Pro is one of the most energy efficient filters on the market. Compared to similar filters it uses 44% to 75% less energy. Excellent mechanical and biological filtration is achieved via optimum water flow. An additional prefilter captures dirt particles right at the beginning. In this way, the subsequent filter material is protected and cleaning intervals are longer. The characteristic multi-function handle fulfills 3 functions. Depending on its position, it acts as a carrying handle and lever for opening, closing, or priming. Wrong use is rendered impossible due to the red safety catch. The supplied shut-off taps are rotatable. You can thus turn them to make them more easily accessible. Water flow is adjusted by the outlet tap. EHEIM High Performance Ceramics ensure very quiet running, high resilience and extremely long service life. The filter canisters are equipped with practical filter baskets. These baskets can easily be removed and filled according to individual requirements. The number of baskets is determined by the size of the filter: Ecco Pro 130 = 1 basket, Ecco Pro 200 = 2 and Ecco Pro 300 = 3 baskets. The filter baskets come pre-filled with original EHEIM filter media.
  • Multi-functional handle. A secure connection between pump and housing is guaranteed when the handle is closed and in carrying position.
  • Integrated priming support for starting water circulation, allowing easy filter start-up. - Quick removal of pump head with its fixed sealing ring. The handle opens the filter for easy cleaning.
  • Complete with mechanical, biological and absorptive filter media filling.
  • Filter inserts guarantee the easiest possible handling and are also perfectly suited to individual application of filter media for layer filtration.

The Best Product Review by ROBERT KELLY (Posted on 2/26/14)

Comments: This is my third Eheim pump in twelve years and I am very happy with it. I have a 55 galoon tank and I had a three chamber first, replace it with a two chamber six years later. When the handle broke on it I got another three chamber one which I like much better.

Comments: Works like a champ! Quiet as a mouse -- Jack Sharkey

Great Product Product Review by MIGUEL HERNANDEZ (Posted on 9/27/13)

Comments: Great product. I had it for almost 3 years. The only problem is that the shut-off valves can break easily. You need to be careful when cleaning the unit.

Excellent Canister Filter Product Review by ALEX V. (Posted on 2/7/12)

Comments: The construction and craftsmanship of this filter is top notch. It looks like Eheim took the time to design the filter and not just slap together generic filter parts. The filter worked great out of the box. Instructions were clear and easy to follow. The illustrations also helped with the setup. The box conatins a fine and a course filter pad. It also comes with free media which is enough to fill the media baskets. Operation is smooth and silent. I can barely hear the pump running. This may be discomforting at times because I frequently have to come up close just to verify the pump hasn't failed. But this is something I can definitely live with!

Maintenance of the filter was simple. The handle made it easy to carry the filter around. No screws are used to secure parts that needed to be clean frequently. Most parts just snap on and off or slide into place. This allow for a quick and easy service. These parts seem durable and don't feel flimsy or sloppy so I don't see a problem in them breaking off anytime soon. The impeller assembly was easy to remove and clean.

The only thing that I might dislike were the green hoses. I wish they were a darker color so they don't stand out in my tank. But this is just my opinion and totally subjective. I guess you could hide it with plants or some decorations.

I have a 40 gallon breeder tanks and the 2236 works perfectly for it. I have the fitler for about 4 months now and have not had any issues. Base on previous experiences with other Eheim's products and filters I am expecting that this filter will last for a long time. I would definitely recommend this product.
