Quick question regarding pot scrubbers

Post by Sandman1969 on Sat Apr 19, 2014 6:39 am

In my 10g tub filter, I have it set up with the scrubbers at the bottom, with the polyester filter sheet then floss on top. Is that the order it should be in or should the scrubbers be at the top?
Water feeds in from the bottom. There's a lifted tray that holds all the media which also allows all the dirty stuff to fall to the bottom.
The scrubbers cover the tray with the other media on top of them.

As long as they can be kept clean and unblocked, they'll work anywhere in the filter.

I try to put my mechanical filtration before the scrubbers. That way the solid waste doesn't clog up the scrubbers. So I would have the floss as the first step if that's possible.
