That's seems like a good way to get a large amount of surface on the filter
and make it pretty slow to clog.  I have found if I rinse off  the micron
cartridge and bleach it right away I can use it over and over and over, I
still have the cartridge it came with.  It still clogs pretty quick though
with the flocculent, but at the same time the tank clears quickly. I have to
cartridges.  I bleach one while the other clogs.

This type of project always winds up costing me way more than just buying
the thing and usually works way worse!  Congratulations!
