Can you ball valve a maxi-jet powerhead?

I think why not, but would like to see if anyone else tried it.

I'm thinking of taking out the phosphate media that's in a media sock inside the reactor and try it without the sock. This way I can control the flow in the reactor and make the media tumble slowly.

Thanks

I would think you could. Output of the pump is dependent on head. A ball valve will increase/decrease head depending on setting.

Yes, Maxi-Jets are the best universal pump around, i use them for feed pump on my Phosban reactor and use maxi-mods for flow in my sump.
