    Bead removal

    Hi

    So tomorrow I need to remove the beads from my BIG bead filter to change a bulkhead fitting thats bust. My first idea was to use the blower to blow them out the waste pipe into some bags but I see that could go wrong.

    Wet vac works but is painfully slow having to empty the damm thing every 5 mins.

    A scoop ?

    Who else has done this and did you find an easy way.

    Cheers

    Andy

    Ok so its done.

    Not much stress trick is keep the water level in the bead near the top then steal the wife Pyrex jug and scoop into a bucket fairly straightforward only lost a few.
