you will need a reactor for GFO. it won't work in a mesh bag, draped in the sump. you should do some reading on it. it's not like carbon that you can just toss a blind amount in the reactor and not worry. you'll need to gradually raise the amount. there is a formula.

Jereli, You will get a much better response by creating a new topic.

As for using GFO, you may want to read
