    Just be careful at outlet that you pump you media out, and if you use a mesh make sure it does not block

    There is a npx reactor mesh below the return pipe to prevent any media from leaving the reactor,and i am thinking of placing a float switch on the inside of the reactor,should there be any blockages,the pump wil be switched off.
