Yes, with the bypass fully open, water still runs thru the reactor. How much exactly, I don't now. Will have to spend some time figuring out what regulator pressure, what BPS, what bypass valve setting works. Should be fun.

why not add another valve to close the reactor if you want to bypass it completely

Great thread! Thanks for all the great tips and info. I read the first 30 or so pages then skipped to the end. I mod my fluidized bed filter a reactor similar to this. The in flowing water goes down a tube and then up through a sand bed. The return water needs to pass through another tube to get back to the tank. Hopefully this work just as well.
