My own Bio wheel

I made my own bio wheel. It's just a pool filter and I have a pump pumping water up and on top of it making it spin. It's huge compared to any other bio wheel I have ever seen for sale. I have made some adjustments with it between the time the pic was taken to now.
What do you think?

Here it is currently, I have a pump, pumping water up to the emperor filter, then the emperor flowing on to the wheel.

That is an awesome idea! Is that a sump setup?

I have it set up on my already establshed tank. So, it should seed quickly, I would think. Yes that is my sump. I have nothing hanging on or in my tank, everything is in the sump under the tank hidden by the stand.
Thanks for the comments.

Very cool! That is a monster biowheel. Does the Marineland filter still have its biowheels, too? If so, that's a massive amount of biological filtration!

Yes, it still has the wheel in it too. Plus 10 gallons of bio balls in my sump.
