RE: reducing flow on small tank filters

This works well on hang on type filters: cut a small piece of vinyl tubing 
equal to the inside diameter of the intake tube. Insert the piece of tubing 
(maybe 1/4" to 1/2" long) inside the intake tube before the strainer 
attaches. This effectively reduces the inside diameter of the entire intake 
tube to the ID of of the piece of vinyl tubing. The flow will be reduced. 
Easy to reverse with no permanent modifications of the filter.

Only use this method if the impeller stays submerged with the piece of tubing 
in place. Don't want to burn out the motor.
