Woudl you buy used Canister - Eheim 2217
I want to buy a cannister filter for the first time for a 75 G planted tank (which i dont have yet). I was going with the Eheim 2217, which is about 200 $ new, and 230$ with tax from Big Al Canada.
Someone is selling a used one at 140$, which is a saving of 90$ at first glance, and mentions the media is included. Obviously, warranty wont be there, as big al offers 1 year. I think factory itself offers 2 years.
Would you guys buy the used one? What should i watch for, what kind of questions should i ask?
Thanks in advance.
I asked a few questions on the status, and was told the following:
Canister is 4 years old.
Filter Media is 1.5 years old
I have african cichlids - freshwater
Selling as they are downsising
the media in each filter is deffinately not over worked.
Definetly looks less apealing for a first canister for me because of the 4 years, but i still would like more input.
New filter eliminates those concerns.
I think the price is a bit high for a used one. Im thinking maybe $90 to $100 tops.
