... My bad. If a true swirl filter with the right design is made then the retention time is not 20 min. See page 22 in the article above. Thanks for the posting. I never thought I would find myself reading about this ...

I've had better luck using aluminum foil then plastic. But either will work. I wouldn't try a 6' branch. Usually have better luck with pencil to finger sized branches. Woody ornamentals are harder then softer plants and succulents. Also, I've ...

... the FT water would still be flowing into buck. I do need to place a 1.5 inch ball valve on the pipe from the FT so I could pause the drain, but then I could just simply turn off the FT supply from the pump, Duh. It's in place already. I still have the SF draining into a small filter box which ...

I regularly get customers in that ask how to do something on their marine multifunction display. I show them, then they yell "THAT WASN'T IN THE MANUAL!" I casually respond with something to the effect that I really only look at the manuals to get the color coding for ...
