    drum filter help

    Im look for some advice.
    I have a pump fed oase drum filter.
    I wanted to put the outlet from 4 into 2 and feed that into a shower.
    The drum outlet is lower than the shower inlet, I'm guessing that won't work ?

    Not without a pump in front of it I wouldn't imagine.

    Think obviously you do have a pump after the drum for the shower,the lower the inlet for the pump/shower the better.

    Hi

    Just thinking if your drum is higher than the pond water level because you are pumping rather than gravity fed and so you are returning the water with gravity then you will be able to rig a shower up as long as the top of the shower is lower than the top of the drum as the water is falling back to the pond with gravity
