The multifunction handle is unique to the Eheim ECCO filter. It combines 3 functions: carrying - opening/closing - priming. Faulty operation is prevented by the red safety adapter.
This is how it works:
In addition to locking and unlocking the filter and use as a carrying handle, it functions as a priming device. After simply connecting the intake and output hoses and arranging your media baskets, move the multifunction handle down to the start position. The water flow will begin. When the filter is full, just plug and play.
The filter comes complete with media, fittings, and valves. The convenient interlocking media baskets allow for versatility in media setup while preventing water by-pass. With proper media setup, a long service life can be expected, on average 3-6 months between cleanings.
