old canister filter work for phosban/carbon?


Recommended Posts

an old pen plax cascade 700 that im using atm for flow at the bottom of my BB, theres currently nothing in the canister, stricly being used for flow, since i had it laying around, and the return is pointing straight down at the BB.


i used it now and then for the carbon, was just wondering if i threw like a womans pantyhose filled with phosban in, if it work, or too much flow. and would it be ok to throttle the flow down from it. i thinks its like 115-120 gph or something like that. and from what ive read, it should be around 80 for phosban or similar material.


or i guess, since i have a low flow sump, would it be ok to just throw it in there somewhere?.. just trying to save some money with shipping etc etc.. i might just break down and buy a used one somewhere.
