  • doseing bak & food into feed pump

    Hi everyone,
    The feed pump to my reactor is to deep for me to dose bak & food into, so I've rigged an L shaped tube onto the intake of my maxi-jet which protudes out of the water. This has a large hole cut in it about three inches below the water line to let the water in. I put my drops in the tube sticking out of the water when I dose so the bak & food get drawn into the pump.
    Am I being too fussy?
    all the best

    LOL, yes, John, you're a bit extreme there. The zeo's will feed the bacteria throughout the system, so target seed & feed, while fine, is not necessary. Better to turn off your skimmer for 60min than worrying about bak/food7 not getting into the zeo-filter--it does. Bob

      Thanks Bob,
      I am turning off the skimmmer for at least one hour as you advised when giving me my dosing info, thanks for that.
      So far everything is looking fine, no probs, clearer water, even my wife noticed and all my parameters remain the same. I'll be asking for some more help when i'ts time to change the stones if thats OK.
      all the best
