Let's do a recap here:bigt said:because they are cheap and reliable. and i know they flow 3 gph. what else would i use? I will save a lot of money either way, i have looked at the sulfur-nitrate reactors and they are like $250, PVC on is like 5 for pvc, 12 for dosing pump, and then the media.
if doing a 3 stage setup with denitrifier, reactor media and the carbon, that's at least $90 for 3 phosban reactors... whereas pvc with endcaps and cleanouts are a lot cheaper...novi tony said:How are you going to evenly disperse flow from the bottom up all the way around the cylinder?
I think by the time you're done you could have had a phosban reactor, which is also CLEAR, and functions the way it would need to.
You don't need a huge cylinder. I'd think a phosban reactor set up right would be good for a 200gal tank.
