H. O. T. Magnum- start up
I'm ready to set up an additional filter. I've read the instructions and it says to create a *drip loop* but does not tell me exactly what that is or how to create it. Any
The instructions also say that a slight rattling noise is normal *only during startup*. Well, I definitely heard this rattling so I shut it off since I don't know if this lack of a drip loop is causing this problem. Is this canister filter supposed to be *primed* before using?? I'm worried that by not knowing what the heck I'm doing I will burn out the pump! The wet/dry filtration is on & working great but I also want the Magnum for extra filtration.
I know that I can run the magnum with or w/o carbon. Since I already have the wet/dry in place should I go carbonless?
Thanks for any info sent my way!
