Showerhead trickle filter.

I haven't done this myself, but I heard it from a friend. He has for his filtration setup an overflow connected to a 3/4" tube, that is connected to a showerhead in a vice (it is a little noisey). The showerhead sprays onto air conditioner filter (you know that blue stuff) which is half submerged in water. The entire setup goes into a sump.

Doesn't a showerhead have metal in it?

You can buy plastic ones all over the place. Most are plastic now anyway unless you want to spend big bucks for the real good ones.
