    Just unboxed the Eheim 2213. Feels and looks like a good quality product. I like the media basket and media set up provided. May toss in a small amount of Seachem matrix and denitrate I have laying around, and maybe replace the carbon pad with some Purigen

    Definitely not silent

    Impeller isn't broken (watched video's) nothing rattling, air is purged, just a loud buzzing/hum. I hope the buzzing goes away as it's only been plugged in a day .... even in a cabinet you can hear the buzzing. I was really hoping it would be silent. After some google searches, seems like lots of people have the buzzing sound.

    Never had any canister that made a buzzing sound, even the crappy ones I hated unless the impeller is wearing down. Maybe after it's built up some biofilm. I don't know how the 2213 is laid out, but my classic has the lattice screen up top, I can see that buzzing if the media isn't loaded full. Something I've always done with the eheim's and I read somewhere that the eheim engineers recommended too is to always lubricate the o-ring when servicing the canister. Use silicone lube - not vaseline. Vaseline or petro products will break down the o-ring. Silicone lube I buy online or your local dive shop.
