Rated 5 out of 5 by EastTex Pre-Filter Module is Outstanding
Don't know why this is listed as a "part"; it is an outstanding pre-filter. I am using it on the intake for my "Turbo Twist" UV Sterilizer. It works great with the sponge replacement filters. The module is a PERFECT fit for the Eheim intake. I first tried to use it with a 1/2 intake tube. There is a hole in the top portion that you can wedge a 1/2 tube into. I got fair results with the 1/2 inch tube but not even close to the outstanding results I got with the Eheim intake. Some reviewers have asked about difficulty in finding replacement sponges. This uses the same sponges as the 2227/2327 and the 2229/2329 filters. The Eheim part number for the sponges is 2615270.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mousque original Eheim product, so it fits
Love Eheim product line! Because its OEM equipment never a problem with fit. We found if you use Lifegard Aquatics Silicone Lubricant it extends the life of the rubber greatly. Foster & Smith #CD907904, use the lubricant for lots of other things too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Papadoc Great addition to your canister filter
i have been using an Eheim 2213 for seven years on my 30 gallon hex, and have been very happy with it. A few months ago I discovered the Eheim prefilter, and thought that I would give it a try. It is a great addition to my tank. This prefilter permits longer intervals between canister cleanings. I clean the prefilter every water change. Just pull it off of the intake tube, take the two pieces apart, wash the sponges in tank water, and reassemble. Less than a minute of work. It helps to keep my tank clean, probably adds a bit of biological filtration, and keeps the canister filter cleaner longer. I just bought two more for my 90 gallon African Cichlid tank. For less than $12 each it is a great value.
