    I have been thinking of this and was told by a dealer that they are very fragile in the barrel chamber and dangerous to eyes without a cut off.
    You can get a 4" uv to run before the drum, which I had considered but thought the rubbish from the pond would get stuck in it.
    So then had the thought of using the same 4" uv after the bio chamber before the pump, do you think it would reduce the flow to much.
    I don't use the uv all the time so still not sure.

    I do have space constraints with installing a UV inline, but the biggest thing for me was that I didnít want to reduce the flow through the returns which Iím sure it would do

    I bought from drew at koi Waterlife no drilling and fitting tank connectors to drum it just sits in the dirty side of the drum under the waste chute canít see why there dangerous if used responsibly all uv lights should not be looked at whilst on have a look at Drewís website the bus are really good

    Is drews the name of a dealer? Never heard of them.
    I and the same not a lot of space and wanted to keep the flow to max. I have mine on a separate loop at the moment with a small pump

    Yeh thatís it the 55 one if you do order one make sure you ask for the stainless bracket it clips into as although they do sink it holds it nicely in place and stops it moving they are good although they cost a bit more no need to drill any holes to fasten in place

    It was to me piece of mind that it wouldnít leak if I drilled the hole in the drum to fit the others by a tank connector

    Looking for a bit of advice. Iím thinking of putting a shower in spring time and was wondering about how to go about it, more about the pump situation really

    The rubber boots show the rough position I want it

    This is the current setup with a 10k returning from the bio and a 10k returning straight from drum.

    The return from the bio I can only run at about 40-50% before it starts to drain the bio box so it will probably have to be pumped from the drum. If I closed of a bit of the return to pond do you reckon the pump would be sufficient enough for pressure to the shower? Bare in mind I only run the return from drum at about 60% currently
