I have a media reactor build made by GSA (Grey Sea Aquatics) now Avast Marine Works and I am using the regular BRS GFO on it. It has been working just fine when the electricity is on. However, if the electricity power goes off then problems arrise! Basically all the media from the reactor returns through the intake and clogs it. Some media returns to the sump and makes the water look awefull murky. After the electrifity comes back, the reactor no longer works because the intake is clogged with GFO..
I guess this happends due to fluid dynamics since the water from the reactor is higher than the sump water.What would you guys do?????
I heard check valves fail on saltwater, I can connect the intake to the display tank drain to sump but Idk.
I made two pictures to explain what happends. Normal OperationNo Electricity Operation
