Eheim canister help needed...

oh bummer. first my fluval 304 failed today. the impeller cover cracked as i removed it. great. lucky for me i have two filters on this tank and almost all my tanks so one is still going...stilll.....: ( so in trying to save the media i decided to add it to an Eheim pro canister...one of the earlier ones...not the ones with the prime built in. i think 2026 or 2226 is the number...anyway...

it didn't really need cleaning but since i'm leaving in three days for two weeks, i decided to keep the media live by adding it to this filter which is on another tank. so i open the filter and sure enough not very dirty...put it all back together and when it fills it starts leaking
