I would remove the filter completely, or only use it for activated carbon.

This assumes you are starting a new system and do not have livestock.

what do you mean use only activated carbon?

Pasfur 11-03-2009 09:59 PM

I would run the filter empty, other than a bag of activated carbon. What filter exactly do you have?

The yes, my advice above would be appropriate.
