    This shoulb be the "top" Zeovit reactor.Don't you think so?
    The drum turns like a washmachine...Just have to modify water flow.

    Bachir, I have seen this reactor some years ago. It is build by a company near my hometown. The reactor was created as a CaCO2 reactor. The problem was to much sediment came to the tank because of the mechanical abrasion.

    I think this could work, but I would not recommend to spin the reactor all the time. Some minutes daily are enough to prevent to much abrasion from the zeovit.

    Another problem I see is how to get the water directly through the zeolite. Most of the water will use the easiest way instead of flowing through the zeolite ?

          Yes, a channel will form above the rocks and the water will flow over it, resulting in passive filtration like when you use a filter sock.
