I have switched from using trickle filters to using settling tanks for debris
removal. The advantage of a settling tank is that anything sucked down your
drain will just live in the settling tank until you catch it back out. The
disadvantage of a settling tank is that really fine particulates may not settle
out, and may be re-cycled back into your tank.
