You're not hijacking. I've been trying to fix my kitchen sink since noon and I'm still not done. I needed a break. I have 3 more faucets to fix too. Grrr I hate plumbing.

Honestly take my word for it, I've slipped on it at work (course it was more quantity than home) but the amount in that resin canister would make for a disaster in a small area.
Bulkreefsupply.com is where I bought my RODI unit and they do sell the bulk resin.....and I managed to replace replace the beads without slipping on my hinnie either....

Dead Spots

I have each AquaClear 50 positioned at the left and right back corners hanging on the back lip pointing toward front center glass.

My sand is separating in the front middle down to bare glass. How do you know if you have dead spots and where they are?



P.S. Haven't been to bed yet.... Have 2 out of 4 sinks finally repaired and hopefully no leaks from those two. Now 2 more to go. I don't have to use my tub faucet anymore

Try pointing them upwards and towards each others flow. You want the flows to crash on each other. Plus you want as much surface agitation as you can get.

I won't be able to move them up much, maybe 1/2" before I run out of lip/back to hold it in place. (heck what is that border thing called).

The trim piece? Did it come with a suction cup mount, maybe you can place them higher? I'm pretty sure it doesnt adjust upwards unfortunately.

Yes comes with suction mount. However if I use the suction mount then I would actually have to lower the ph for it to attach to the glass. Let me try to get a picture for you.

So how do you know if you have any deadspots? Are there any telltale signs? I wanna try to make sure I don't have any when the time comes to give some fishies a new home

What alot of people do is use purple up. It's a milky color and when you put in it you can see EXACTLY where the water flows. Also might work with flake food, you can see where it goes and if it drops to a spot and stays there, you got yourself a dead spot.

LOL

Here's a few pics.

Excuse the fly away hairs. If I raise them up any higher, I will have more salt creep too won't I?
