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?

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.
