Eheim Surface Extractor Information



A challenge you face as an aquarium owner is consistently keeping the water clean and healthy for your fish. If you neglect that task, a film of protein will form on the water surface, blocking off vital light and fresh oxygen from reaching the fish. You'll end up with not just a dirty tank but also sick -- or worse, dead - pets and underwater plants.

But when you're a busy person, keeping your aquarium clean at all times takes a lot of work and eats a chunk of your time. Or does it? Not when you have the right tool like the Eheim Surface Extractor from Pet Store! It removes the stubborn layer of protein off the water surface, improving the flow of oxygen and light into the aquarium. All you need to do is install it in your tank and watch it take care of that unsightly (and unhealthy) film of oil floating on top of the water.

How does it work? Water in the tank enters the Eheim Surface Extractor through the floating intake that lies just below the surface. Then, the extractor's built-in strainer cleans the water. It's a great addition to your current filter system, and at less than $50, it's surely a bargain!

It skims off the protein layer which forms on the water surface, improving oxygen exchange.

For filters 2215, 2217, 2226, 2228, 2250, 2260, 2315, 2317, 2326 and 2328, a T-reducing piece is necessary, so that a bypass is created and two inlet lines are used. Additional tubing may also be required.

Filters 2215 and 2315 require EH4004950

Filters 2217, 2317, 2226, 2326, 2228 and 2328 require EH4005990

Filters 2250 and 2260 require EH4007990

Great Product!!! Product Review by Plant Master (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: This item is perfect for my planted tank. You can shut off the surface skimmer if you want and extract water from the bottom only or you can have both inlets running at the same time. I love it.

Excellent!

Comments: Skimmer works very well with a eheim pump I had a skimmer from another brand had nothing but problems.

Extractor Product Review by Bob (Posted on 11/21/11)

Excellent!

Comments: Got the Eheim surface extractor set up yesterday A.M. and the surface film is gone! The Ecco has quite a bit less suction than the Classic or other filters, but enough to get the job done. The extractor must really be something else with a more powerful filter. Good product.

Top and bottom... Product Review by DENNIS DE GUZMAN (Posted on 10/21/07)

Excellent!

Comments: No pumps needed!!! Connects straight to your canister filter. Not like a built in skimmer box. Skims your water surface like a "VACUUM" cleaner and also filters dirt from the bottom of your tank like a regular filtering device.

Great!

Comments: Using with a 2217. Found a compatible reducing tee by using a PEX 3/4x3/4x1/2 adaptor at my local Lowe's. Removed the film on the top of the water on my 75 gal. in less than an hour. Simple adjustment to pause extraction during feeding time. Does add a very small gurgling sound to the almost silent operation of the 2217.
