"Perhaps Rob Nash can give you the best review. Sounds to me like you are doing it right. I am only a month into my DWC so I may run into the same problem. I eagerly await Rob's take on it. I am already seeing some build up on the bottom of my…"
"G Mo, I am building the radial filters. Pretty simple to do. I just drilled my first hole in the barrel yesterday. You Tube is a wonderful/dangerous thing. I'm setting up the systems in my back yard to verify measurements and functionality…"
"G Mo, we can help more if you give a better description of your system flow. Do you have a clear water sump after the media beds? If so, that is the water to send to the DWC bed. If you are draining from the media beds back to the FT and then…"

"I have a 3500 gal pool with 150 koi and 2 4x8 gravel beds and 1 30x4 trough. The pool and gravel beds have been great for the past 1.5 years but I've never had anything but muddy roots in the trough. I'm in the process of…"
"media beds are the best mechanical and bio filter combo available.
