Radial Flow Filter

Monday, September 9, 2013

I posted this video on YouTube a few months ago. I’m still amazed at how much stuff it filters out with such a simple system.

I was considering adding a swirl filter to the system but I’m really glad I chose this type. It seems to work much better than a swirl filter and is easy to maintain.

About a month ago, the supports under the filter broke and the whole thing fell onto the ground. The fix was easy and only one pvc pipe fitting was broken.

I also am grateful of the design of my system being one that will not totally drain the fish tank or the system when a failure occurs. The pump simply stops when the water gets too low and everything stays wet and waiting for my repair.
