  1. Default Undergravel jet system

    Hello, I'm in the process of redoing my 6ft malawi tank and want to fit an undergravel jets to keep the substrate clean and cut down maintenance.

    What I can't decide is how strong should the powerhead be and what diameter of pipes should I use. I think about 5 jets will cover everything.

    I was thinking about maybe hooking the outflow of my jbl cristalprofi1500 up to the system. Downside to this is that there will be very little surface movement.

    So a powerhead just for the jets is the way to go I guess. How much flow will I need and what size pvc tubing?

    Thanks

    You "could" use an UGF with reverse flow pumps to push the gunk up (rather than pulling it down) so the other filter could pick it up.

    The only thing I would recommend an UGF filter for actually. They just seem like a good filter for tanks full of rocks.

    Would you check your PM at the top right please? Thanks

    I'm sorry if I wasn't clear about what I will be making. This isn't a filter but something to have waterflow all over the tank bottom. Water shoots out of the jets and keeps debris from settling. picture

    I have sand in tank btw so an UGF reverse or normal won't be of much help.

    Heads up, Your picture link is not working [For me at least].
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    Works fine for me. Let me try something else then.
