RE: [APD] Re: Eheim for sump pump
While we're onthe subject, does anyone have a source for
3-4 (or 5-6 or 1-2) turnovers per hour being better or
worse than the other rates? The only references I've found
are alusions to other references to other references. . .
In other words, I can find the proposition but not the data
The closest I've found to data is something like, "seems to
work well" or "many people suggest".
I think a range of about 1-10 times per hour works out fine
for most applications -- the high side being better for the
fish from fast streams and the low side for fish from
stiller waters. RE filtration, anywhere inthe range seems
to work well and many people suggest 1, or 2, or 3. . . or
10. . .
