As a biofilter corner HMF will be used

Pore ​​size: 20 ppi (Intermediate)

The pump of HMF's I build from a Tunze Nano Stream 6045
5-7 Watts
1500 - 4500 l / h
Runs at 5 watts and 1500 l / h

In addition to HMF I'll run a quick filter.
This consists of a black filter mat and a flow pump.
Matt Size: 15x60cm; 4cm thick
Pore ​​size: 20 ppi (Intermediate)

As pump also comes the Tunze Nano Stream 6045 for use as the biofilter. However, it runs the quick filter at full rated power.
This means:
4500 l / h
7 Watt
The quick filter is cleaned regularly change the water with.

The flow of the pump is passed with the help of 40mm PVC pipe through the mat forward.
Other equipment:
- 300 Watt JBL heater behind HMF
-> Will probably later be replaced by a Titanheizstab

Since the pool is still under construction may follow another Technick!
