What happens to the detritus that will get in the aquaripure. I know that the pump should be placed in an area where there is minimal floating waste but some will surely get in. Regards John

That is a good question. However, it really is not an issue. The bacteria in the Aquaripure will actually completely break down all organics into gasses. I believe they eventually break down or absorb most inorganic molecules as well. I opened a heavily used Aquaripure after 5 years and aside from a very small amount of very fine silt in it, it was basically as good as new. There was absolutely no reduction in the internal surface area or sign of it ever coming close to it clogging up in any way.

Aquaripure

My nitrates have been climbing steadily over the last couple of months. I purchased this medium size Aquaripure about 6 months ago but due to change of plans I didn't use it. Now seems the right time to put it on my 6x2x2. As the initial bacteria will have died off I am starting it off from scratch. Aquaripure say this could take far longer but I have a feeling I will see a reduction of nitrates quite soon. John Strawn has been most helpful and has replied quickly to my emails. The setting up has to have been the easiest piece of aquarium equipment I've ever set up. I am looking at eventually getting rid of my skimmer- hardly attractive to look at and they require lots of attention to keep them running. The Aquaripure hardly takes any time or effort to keep it going. I'll keep posting as soon as I start to get results. John
