If you have the means, put it in a reactor! that way you know for sure that water is passing through it and not just around it.

+1 to reactor. You can put a lot more into the reactor too. The reactor is only a cylinder where you put filtration mass, and where water flow with a pump. So you sure the water is passing through it.

The more water moving through it the better. Under your return pipe is a good choice to make as much of the water in your system passes through it as possible if there are no reactor on your system.

I don't have a sump, but I guess if you put it under the return pipe it will be ok for short term, but IMO it should be put after the mecanical filtration step... The waste from the unfiltrated water will eventually clog the bag...

I don't mean as a filter sock, i mean under it. Hanging it under that will get as much of the water to pass through the bag as possible.
