Does the filter floss slow the flow rate at all? I have been building
aquariums with 1/2 inch bulkheads and I inserted a litle screen I found as
part of a drip irrigation head in a couple of them (it has two or four
rotating elbows for attaching the drip line, and the screen is just part of
the piece), but besides being kind of expensive to pay for the head just for
the screen it slowed down the drain rate so much I almost had an overflow.
I guess I overlooked the obvious which turns out to be the best!
Thanks for the info!
