    Hi,

    Since I begun using the AM1000, I notice more dust fine particles depositing on the leaves. I suspect the dust accumulates in the AM bioballs and is than rejected in the tank. Anyone with external reactor confirm this issue and how I could solve it?

    Having to move the leaves every other day is getting annoying really

    Many thanks for helping me

    Give it a good shake every so often, prefilter the water prior. Rinse with Excel, Bleach and clean every so often, etc.

    Thanks for confirming it,

    I thought it was some put and forget it thing. Finally only a myst system would really be low maintenance. Removing the AM1000 every so often is kinda pain in the a** unless I install some inline shut-off taps. I'll look at some hose clamps maybe to do it easily

    Thank you again
