Eheim Pipes Clouded
I was looking at the vinyl tubes that run from the canister to the inlet/outlet pipe and notice it has really clouded up. Does this ever need to be clean and if so, how?
I had the same issue. I used, based on other forum member's suggestions, an aquarium brush attached to weed-eater line. Fed the weed-eater line, with attached brush, through the line, pulled the line through and voila - clean pipes. The brush I used was a Hagen (?), that was set up for cleaning long tubing. The original line wasn't long enough, so that's why I used the weed-eater twine.
Probably didn't increase water flow, but the lines looked nicer!
Is it just me or has the forums seem......kinda quite? I usualy get repsonses to posts within a day but now its been 3+.
DKRST - Weedline is not 'twine', it's large diameter monofilament (typically made using Nylon 6 resin).
METALARM3 - Wet carpet does not need replacing, just extraction - them carpets deserve to be cleaned!
(now if the underlayment is particle board, we may be in trouble...not to mention whatever might be on the ceiling/floor below)... HOWEVER, you can clean these hoses without causing any leakage and eventually based on what others have reported, you probably will need to.
By all means I agree. When the time comes for it to be [b]needed[b] to be clean, then I shall do so. But from a visual stand point.....nah, why go looking for possibly trouble.
Damn....bold fail :(
It works well since it's stiff enough to feed through the hoses versus actual string/twine, that you could never push through - That would be like trying to push a spaghetti noodle through.
