Just received a nice email from Eheim after I sent them a query..
Thank you very much for your inquiry by email. The ecco filter 2231 is one of the oldest ecco filters – the first generation of these filters were the ecco 2231, ecco 2233 and the biggest ecco 2235. |
The new ecco pro 2032 has a pre filter included and an overworked handle. Also the impeller is overworked.
The performance of the older ecco filter 2231 is lower than and the performance of the new ecco pro 2032.
Ecco 2231: pump performance 300 l/h, delivery head 1,0m
Ecco pro 2032: pump performance 500 l/h, delivery head 1,4m
I hope that this information is helpful for you.
If you have further questions please don't hesitate to contact us again.
Mit freundlichen Grüssen / Yours faithfully

On that basis I'll wait till I get a bigger tank as the newer ones have a higher flow rate for the similar base model.
Thanks all for the feedback and advice, it's stopped me rushing into things :)
