A few quick PMP questions
    #4017472 - 04/05/05 03:36 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

1. Do I need to put my profile5500 in a box with filters on it? Should I?

2. To what extent does my hydroton need to be cleaned? Right now I've been rotating loads of it in a big strainer in the tub but the water is still coming out slightly dirty. I've also been dropping in amounts of bleach periodically.

3. Do the holes on the top of the pod NEED to be filtered? If I don't have polyfill can I just use a coffee filter, or would that restrict airflow too much?

Thanks in advance!  :mushroom2:

1. no...not unless your really anal.

2. just wash it out good...I clean mine with bleachy water...then rinse with fresh water.

3. I'd filter the holes in the top...go find some polyfill, coffee filters aren't good enough...IMHO

Geolite/Hydroton/LECA (Lightly Expanded Clay Aggregate) is clay. You will probably get dirt coming out strained water or else it wouldn't be clay. I just rinsed mine with scorching hot water several times.

I will just go to bartells and try to find it, unless you know of a walmart within the city limits of seattle, roadkill.

as for the hydroton- yeah i figured it would be producing dirty water for quite awhile, i was just getting tired of swapping basketloads. i had read somewhere that some people drained it until the water was clean, but wasn't sure how necessary that was.

thanks again for the replies

Another local?
hope so...nice to meet ya!~

The closest Walmart to me...is Renton.
If your in West Seattle...there is a Material store, place that sells sewing stuff...they have polyfill there.

You can get polyfill in a pet store or other places.

good luck!~

I took Joshua there for hydroton a few years ago.

If you can find a landscape supply place that sells gravel sized volcanic pumice stone, it does the same thing as hydrotron & is FAR FAR CHEAPER.

Just have to rinse the hell out of it, to get rid of the dust, first.

http://wardsci.com/search.asp?t=ss&ss=Geolite $16.95 for 15 liters including shipping. Very cheap, kick ass and reliable scientific website.
