ill take some water to the lfs
and let them check for P04. I dont have a phospate test. ill have to get back home to take pics of my loop. I live in CA
, i m in toronto right now.
now about the loop: im running mine with a Rio 1100. I m fifteen and i planned, measured, cut and glued the PVC
together by myself. Depends on how complicated u want the loop to be. I just have an intake with pump primer and one outtake.
