AC50 basket


Recommended Posts

Hey, Steve,


Is it normal for some water to come out of the AC50 next to the intake pipe when the media basket is in place and has media in it?

Check your filter floss. This just happened to me and it was because my filter floss and my chemical media bags were covered in crud. I removed the crud from the media bags and replaced the FF and it went back to normal.

Yes, you are putting back pressure on the incoming water since you are forcing water through a directed path through the media increasing it's effectiveness. The filter is designed to work like this, same thing happened if you let the stock setup clog.

Well, the filter floss is about 5 minutes old, so I knew it wasn't clogged. I guess I didn't expect that much obstruction. It's all good, though.


Thanks, Steve
