The king of DIY
I'd like to see something like this drawing rather than pushing. By attaching an intake from a canister or even an hob filter to the riser.
Joey, I LOVE these older videos!!!
Hi Joe, how can i connect a a Top filter to undergravel jet system???????????? or how can i install an undergravel jet system to an aquarium with a top filter, my idea here is use the top filter pump and connect to the undergravel jet system , but also keep and use the filter box, can you please explain and make a vedio on this topic
Very good I make at home it's really work. 🙏🙏🙏👍👍👍👍
I use sand
+The King of DIY I am a newbie.. QQ for the PROs: I have Fluval 206 Canister filter for a 38 Gallon tank. Does this UGF help with keeping the tank cleaner/growing good bacteria/etc. etc. ?
Could this be used as a return from a sump or canister filter? Like a RFUG kinda deal. Hopefully under sand.
How does this design prevent the sand from getting sucked into the pipe?
Which is the best filter for oscar fish?
I want to see it in action also
Exactly what pipes do you drill the holes in? Is it just the outside ones or the middle one to?
0/10 no effort put into video. Didn’t even make an environment, and didn’t even fill it with water.
Can't use sand.
seriously, this chanel to much blame and minim action.
What is the thickness of the PVC pipe?
Want to know more about this and also need to know how it works after filling water…
Undergravel filtration came out in the 70's it worked well then, it works well now.
Send is up with powerhead
Can you use this for a planted tank?
I didn't understand the filtration techniques
How will water come out from tank
This looks great. What did you use for substrate here? I was worried that the substrate I have might move. But looks like yours are just as fine as mine.
RETRO VID BINGE!!!
What kind and power of pump would you use for a 4 ft aquarium with 2" of sand? Thanks.
Joey, is this the same as a UGF, if not could you share a link for your ugf design please? I'm having trouble finding a UGF video by you.
I've heard powerheads are better then air stones for under gravel filters.
I am upgrading my 45 gallon planted tank to a 75 gallon and am having trouble finding a UGF for that size.
Can you do this with gravel, this would be great for a 150 gal take. Thoughts?
Those it work for freshwater too and what kind of pump is being use ??
I don't understand..
Joey , I use under gravel filters (supa / penn plexx) in all my tanks could I mod this to them?
I really cant understand how it work , sorry I need more informacion
Can I hook my canister filter up to this??? Or install an under gravel filter system from the 80's and hook it up to canister filter??? Pushing water through same as you are.
Hey great video. Quick question! I have a 85 gallon tank with a turtle that it almost the size of you hand and 5 feeding fish that has out grow my turtle because she decided not to eat them. Now the bottom of the tank if always dirty. I have river rock at the bottom will these system work with the rocks.
It should hav a part 2.. tnx btw
what about if sucking the water through gravel ,push the water through gravel ,so i can use my canister filter and there is no waste keep lying on gravel ,so keep the gravel clean ,i have moderate plantation also , what are the cons and pros of this???? please reply
post a video with water in it and running pls
Hmm I don't think it's a good idea to disturb the gravel bioload…..
will it also pull in the sand. I'm planning to build this system.?
i cant understand the working of jet filter
hello! i have a (Deco O) 20L tank. i want to know whats the best undergravel for me and what would fit too.
is this effective for a goldfish pond?
You have no idea how it works do u???? You just know how to build it or copy a working system
wouldn't the sand get sucked too, and making the tubing clogged up.
Wait, Undergravel filters push water into the substrate? Since the detritus is already at the bottom wouldn't it make sense to suction the water out and into a filter? I'm using a stock tank with a bottom drain and wanted to incorporate an Undergravel filter.
Thank you Joey! Been a great help and the redesign of our tank is looking great, originally set up our 60 with gravel but took it down to do a 3d background (also hiding a heater and intake Tube), but I sealed the hydraulic cement with tinted drylock. I Used privacy film to "frost" the back and wall side of the tank, again a great tip, then set up an under gravel jet system but with a threaded corner union. With a 3/4 barb fitting that fit onto the spare hose length from my (Penn-plax cascade 1000) canister filter running it to the top edge of the tank where I connect it to the output line from my duplicate canister filter, so running 265gph (less media restriction) into a under substrate jet system in a closed "d" shape due to my background depth, and with 50# of pool filter sand, once again thanks!
Anyways it's a pretty smooth and clean look for everything going on in the tank and hopefully it holds true to working great!
Keep up everything you're doing, it's really spectacular what you offer for the aquarist community.
i just want to say you are my new favorite channel. Keep up the awesome work!
