    Bump to the top.

    I run a 1100 lt per hour on a 150 phosban reactor.

    But hey you got a free bump to the top.

    1200 lts per hour seems fine. Personally i would get a bigger pump that you can dial back the power.

    Looks like a very nice piece of equipment.

    I have read somewhere that if you want to run pellets(NP bio or Zeolith) then you want strong flow.Like a 1000+ lph to ensure that the pellets are always tumbling ect.

    And if you want to run carbon or phos remover(like rowa phos ect) then you want slow flow. 400 to 500 lph flow.

    Again this is what ive read, i havent used a reactor yet.

    hi Just called the importers of that reactor - they sugest a pump of a flow rate of between 1400lph - 2000 lph

    Pop in and we can go through the pumps to find a suitible one for you .
    Cheers AJ.
