    About 200gph, good for up to 6" of slot.

    The spraybar seemed to be blocked and spraying inside the unit, so it was removed for cleaning. You can see a build up around the slot and I am not sure that the slot is wide enough. It only seems wide enough to put the canvas in, with not much room for anything else, making clogging easier.





    Produced a bit more growth this week with the new powerhead, 6g of oily today so it seems the screen is acting okay and hopefully will create more of it in the coming weeks.

    If the screen can fit, there is probably enough room, because water goes through the holes. But 3mm width is good.

    Much more of the same this week, although 9g removed from the screen this week, a 50% increase in last week. Still not convinced I have the flow right yet.

    Flow is fine if growth is across the screen. Lighting is weak, causing dark slime which is letting go.

    Always knew the lighting could be a bit too little for it, thinking of other solutions. I seem to remember though that on my old CFL scrubber, I had to put 2x 45w to give the growth a boost, then I could go back to the lower wattage bulbs.

    No real progress with mine at the moment, still only getting 10- 12g per week, which is terrible. I have increased the photo period by 2 hours while I am still looking for replacement lights.
