Thread: Filtration idea

  1. #1

    Filtration idea

    Recently my drum gearbox packed up so had to pull my bypass plug and let the crap go into the bio chamber to keep system moving.This is not great as once drum was fixed I then had to empty the bio media clean out the tank and carefully clean the worst of the crap filled media to stop it sinking and restricting the water flow. Now my question is what would you recommend if this happened again I was thinking a bypass valve to a sieve maybe as its short term but welcome any better ideas.

    Hi mate, that sounds a viable solution to me and probably more reliable that using sponges or filter wool etc...

    Hi Gazkoi thanks for your reply yes exactly sponges won't have time to generate bacteria neither will a sieve and thats the idea its just short term to catch crap until issues fixed.
