Any info on Reverse Undergravel filter?

Any advise on my planed RUGF system.

I have a 50 gallon acrylic tank wich I put two 3/4" bulkheads though the bottom (centered on each side) with a perfecta flow plate over them. I plan on puting 2 more bulkheads on the back tank wall, above the gravel line for the intake.
So the 2 back wall bulkheads would be piped in to one, then to a 950 GPH external pump mounted to 2- BIG BLUE house water filters. One being 20 micron cartridge, the other being 2/3 carbon, 1/3 fiber fill. Then piped back up to the 2 bottom bulkheads, though the plate and though the 3' deep, 1/4" gravel.

Any sugesstions?

Not sure I understand. Is this fw? Are you wanting to filter water on tank continuously? Would you still do water changes? Sorry not understanding.
