    The problem with mine has always been and will continue to be the smallest stones getting stuck in the bottom plate holes that intersect the edge of the plate.
    I've always thought filling these half-holes with silicon would solve 99% of the problems if the silicon will stick to the PVC.

    just a question though, how come it looks like the tank is very close to the floor?
    the reactor is on a table

    Question - how did you attach the screen to the base? If you can, close up pictures would really help!

    It must be the angle I took the picture from. That tank is a 75 gal inwall sitting on a regular height stand.

    started a topic Zeovit Reactor Modification

    Zeovit Reactor Modification

    Just thought I would get some comments on my Zeovit reactor. After reading alot of the post about diy reactors and the problem with the stones causing problem with pumping I made mine with an inner sleave made from plastic screen. I got it from a pond supplier and zip tied it together.
