Do any of you use mechanical filters like inline Ocean Clear systems with 25-100 microm cartridge filters, running them for a few hours once a week, to do any type of cleaning? I am still setting up my first sump system, and I want to try and get everything plumbed in that I might use in the future. I will already be running carbon in a reactor.
Also, should I be running any type of filter sock somewhere in my sump? or screens to cover the return inlet?
I also assume that if one has an adequate clean up crew, that the need for a mechanical filter could be none. It seems like those that do have a mechanical filter, only run it for short periods of time, every week or month.
Thanks for all your help.
