This is the Whisper Something or other, isn't it? The Vortex functions
this way if you have their recharge valve -- i.e., it causes the out to
go to the in. The System 1 obviates the need for this by puting the
impeller in the aquarium and using a filter "screen" that won't pass
DE, even when uncoated.
Does anyone have experience with hee Whisper (or Tetra) diatom filter
in terms of longevity?
