You can't prime it with the Installation kit? You just said you don't have the kit? Are you sure you tried, you suerely did something wrong. The filter will prime without issues with the installation kit
Interesting thing happened. The flow without co2 reactor petered out in 2 days. Eventually there was no flow like before. I removed the filter baskets and media and now there is stupendous flow. Wonder if seachem matrix is not made to be used with this filter?
About the priming kit= could you send me a link about what it is supposed to look like, I thought this new filter intakes and output have those added to it but I may be mistaken.
I have gone from blaming CO2 reactor to filter to seachem matrix. The last thing to blame will be my lack of ability with this filter. Perhaps I should wait before I do that.
Is this a new looking Barrreport or is my browser screwing up?
I do have these set of pipes. I think they are being shipped with eheim pro 3 now a days.
It will be interesting to see what happens with ehim media set.
I will update the thread when things come through.
Strange, they don't ship with these parts on any site I met
I'm surprised you can't prime it filling through the tap on inlet, it should work without issues. media won't interfer with priming, air exchange being made in prefiltering area, above all media. A valve separates the compartments from prefiltering chamber
