    I got that information from the backyard research of Griff. He tried various rates and 50 to 100 gph per cubic foot of media did the best job of nitrate stripping in his TT setting, according to the Mad Builder.

    SMG,

    They do indeed use milk and/or beer crates for showers also.

    This discussion on bakki showers is getting more interesting day by day. But don't forget that the most important things are result, result and result. So for those who have tried this system please share with us here in this forum of the end result ok?

    ANDREW/USE OF CRATES

    Thanks Andrew for posting the crate pic site! I have noticed it before but now a real question. I'm seeing what I believe to be a wooden support for these crates? anyone been there and seen that? I would like to build something that went over the end of my inside facility but haven't figured out what I want to use. wood would be the last thing.

    Yes it's wood Dick although a pretty substantial bit of wood! I have no idea what sort it is.

    Yes Dick, a very substantial hardwood. I would guess Iroko.

    Why would wood be the last thing? Many traditional Japanese ponds have wood in the water, very much a common site are timber logs, placed vertically, partly submerged.

    I'm pretty sure your answer will be along the lines of possible contaminants and I'm sure some timbers may not be suitable, but it would appear some are.

    Andrews post has also reminded me of something else. They actually have wooden partitions in some of the filter bay on the ponds too.

    Andrew: Whose facility are those crates in? Also, are they filled with oyster shell?

    If you've seen the Koi Bito DVD then this is the area where the auction is held.
