    Load it with BH and off you go..there is a guy in the UK, his nic on koichat is DaveA I think, he makes a similar tower and vortexes at very reasonable prices. That looks ok but the price for that size looks a little steep. Not that familiar with UK pricing so I may be wrong.

    HenryC made a Trickle Tower on a somewhat similar design a few years ago. It worked well. Unlike a Bakki Shower-type, you need good mechanical pre-filtration. My concern is that the sides are open and the catch basin is a close fit. Will water stay in the tower?? ...I suspect it will at lower volumes, but will splash out at higher volumes. The dealer/manufacturer should advise on the proper volume per hour.

    Hi Mike,

    sounded like HenryC did a DIY trickle tower project. I am interested in the info. Did he post the details and results on KB?
