I absolutely love my Eheims, I'd take a bullet for them.
I own 4 2217, 2 2215, 2 2260, 1 2236, 8 1262 pumps.
Not once have I ever had a leak. Going on 15 years of using Eheim products and I prefer to use nothing else.
I'm not understanding your post at all. The specifics of the leak are hard to pinpoint. Are you implying that the leak is where the tubing connects tot eh pump head? This is a simple fix. Your locking nut may not have been tight enough and or your tubing was not put in square so now a corner is leaking. Are you implying that the large O-ring between the canister and pump head are leaking? Are you sure you have all the metal tabs locked over? Did you purge the valves when you installed the pump to the canister to relieve the pressure that builds up from forcing the pump on? Have you torn the rubber o-ring by accident?
