    Default Eheim double tap - necessary?

    I picked up a used eheim 2213 but it does not come with double taps that everyone seems to be using. Do I have to get these? They run for at least $35 for one online.

    They're not necessary, but they will make canister servicing a whole lot easier. The classics are a pain to prime and you would have to prime it each time you're cleaning it out.

    Exactly, with the double taps you just close, disconnect and service canister. Fill back up, open taps and it’s already primed.
