Anyone done this I’ve 2 outlets on drum going into my bio chamber in order to slow the flow through my bio I was going to blank one inlet on bio off and put another pump on the spare outlet on the drum then I can slow the pump into bio down and use the other pump on drum to keep the flow the same through the drum a long winded explanation but I hope you can understand what I mean

I have done the same thing dave , I have a 10000 variflow off the first outlet on drum to my bio chamber, the other outlet on drum goes straight back to pond.

Thanx for your reply my bio is gravity fed so I was going to try 10000 litres 50 % an hour through that with the 20000 variflow I’ve got and add a variflow 10000 running on drum outlet at 5000 litres 50 % would that wprk
