I'm guessing you put the GFO in a mesh bag and placed it in your AC70? If so, remember to pull out the bag occasionally and roll it around a few times and/or a few light shakes. Since most GFO is angular, not spherical, the granules will self-compact (interlock) and at that point the water will just roll around it instead of through it (path of least resistance). GFO works great in a reactor that keeps it churning, but not quite as good just laying in a bag.....
