I blow it off with a baster, then let the filters pick it up.
Problem is my HOB
filter holds onto this stuff, in the bottom, and it gets stirred up really bad every time I change/clean the media, or turn the filter on or off.
So I cut and put a filter pad over the intake, which has helped, and now I vacuum the filter any time I do a PWC
. I'm getting close to eliminating that filter entirely - another 20 to 40 pounds of LR
and I'll give it a shot.
