APEX Flow Meter Alarm Went Off and I Found Surprise

Recommended Posts

I am running a peristaltic pump to feed the calcium reactor.

To make the plumbing easy, I pull from the return pump section, and push to the reactor (fallback to a regular pump is easier this way).

The alarm went off from APEX this morning letting me know the calcium reactor flow was low.

Guess I need an intake strainer, look at this monster bristelworm that was sucked up! (3/8" tubing, not 1/4")

Ugh - hate bristle worms!  Had like an 18 inch one in my previous tank when I tore it down.  Better than a bobbit I  guess. Good thing you had clear tubing so you could see what it was!
