    sounds like an idea phat.the reactor is fed by an empty canister filter which already has taps

    Mekaeel i would go for carbon in the first two with PO4 remover in the 3rd. If you going to use zeolites get the proper reactor wher can control the flow and flush it properly.

    Please tell more about this flushing? Is it backwashing or just increasing flow?
