    i just bought a 125gal tank, it came with a eheim 2017 filter, found out that they quit making these in the 80s, surprisingly the filter still works fine, but this filter has a 2 piece impeller shaft, anyone know why these filters have a 2 piece impeller shaft? also dose anyone know if i can use a solid shaft to replace the 2 piece shaft? i know that the eheim 2217 is basically the same filter, i guess the replacement for the 2017, i have read that the impeller from the 2217 dosnt fit the 2017 but i wonder if the shaft will work? any help would be great. thanks

    Do a search for 2017. There have been a few comments but no satisfactory replacements for this filter.

    Sorry I couldn't help more.

    you sure its the 2017 and not the 2217 that your thinking of because eheim hasnt made the 2017 sense the 80s, the 2217 replaced it. but i have read that the impeller from the 2217 wont fit the 2017 even though the filters are the same size, but im not sure if the impeller shaft will work, i just really want to know why the impeller shaft in the 2017 is a 2 piece shaft. and if any other one piece shaft will work in the 2017.
