I want to know more about your rdf. How much was it? with shipping? Isnt 2000 gph overkill for your tank? Ive heard theres still maintenance of the filter. If the tumbler stops the good bacteria dries out and drowns and you will need an entire new one. Ive not read good things in my short search.
No idea what you are talking about, there is no bio media in a drum filter. The only maintenance is to check the cleaning jet nozzles every now and then to make sure they arent clogged.
I've been saving up for my drum filter(s), I will order the one for the aquarium project next week.
The koi pond turned to crap from the overloaded filter system and it already has fish in it so it has had priority.
If it would stop raining now I could finish that project.
This one is rated for 8,000gph with 60 micron screen. I will probably only be running 4,000gph through it though.
It's big, very heavy and very well built. I can tell why these things cost so much.
mud mud mud .... ugh
The new system will work like this.
