    my 2 small drums both return straight over shower but with the option to go underwater if i need to for any reason,does your bio chamber only have 1 4" inlet and 1 x 1 1/2 exit,also your pipework from drum to pump looks like it goes back to your skimmer or am i confused lol,andi

    if it was me i would use the 4" outlet thats going to skimmer and put another inlet into chamber,then put another outlet on chamber to go to shower but split this to also return underwater if needed,a couple of tank connectors would work for this,you can see my valve set up back right of pic lol.andi

    JBR one, as you say I could add a 4” tank connector and find some mesh to hold back the K1 and then tee off to split between shower and mid level return. Would mean that I can increase flow through bio as well . How can I secure the mesh for the bio? Sealant?

    What do people do with their showers during winter? Surely the heat loss is ridiculous?

    If you put a shower on that wall it might prevent any surface debris going into your skimmer. Is that one the only skimmer?

    It’s is the only skimmer and it’s the only place the shower can go. The skimmer is going to be run off a pump on a timer so I can have the shower turn off for 10mins while the shower is on?
