It will not clog if you don’t cram the tube with media. Use filter floss / felt strip 6″ long X 2″ wide for best results. The water flows through it just like a sock. At the bottom you need to place one of the grey filter media pieces I show in the video or you run the risk of clogging when the felt piece gets full of debris, which you should check and rinse clean every few days just like a sock. I’ve been running it for a month straight. I include a couple of these strips with your order.
New show every Saturday.
