    Default Eheim Pro II Flow indicator

    After a few years of service, the flow indicator ball of 2026 worn out and rattled so much. I had to take it out and use the filter without. Does this happen to anyone else here or just me? Has anyone found a replacement ball or alternate solution?

    My 2028 is > 4 years old and I don't have this problem, but my filter is in a closed stand, so I wouldn't notice as much.

    Mine is probably 8 plus year old, I took it out a few years ago but was unable to find a replacement for it.

    Thanks for the link. But this seems to be more like an add on then the replacement part. Some other website is saying "The EHEIM Trough-flow-indicator is simply installed on the over-flow tube of the InstallationsSET 2".

    The part you're looking for comes with the retainer ring. Part 7444410. $16.42 US plus shipping. A bit steep for a little ball. They call it a "floater".

    I know, and they do not even ship to Canada. I have to do mail box and pick it up. I'll probably just run without it. I am just curious that if someone with same situation has found a "ball" other then Eheim that works.

    It is a known problem with this pro model, I have removed one of mine as it was doing the exact same thing, I tried cleaning it and it did not help, you will notice a reduced flow at the outlet once your filter is in need of service. So I felt it was no problem to eliminate the rattle

    My 2026 is fine, my 2028 I took it out
    hope this helps.

    Don't let your mind wander. . . it's too small to be let out on its own.
