    I'll watch for that.

    This shower is going to be a lower flow unless I add another pump with a mid-level pick up. Which I probably will add next spring but for now I closed off a jet and built another waterfall. The flow is less than 2000 gph so what would be a good media for this low flow rate?

    Thanks Tom!
    The fall is only 8" wide and gotta be less than 2K gph. Maybe next spring I'll add more flow

    Powerman, I was looking at your photo of your shower and now I'm not sure if I have a trickle tower (which is what I've been calling it) or a shower. The water coming out of my pipes looks like your photo.

    So what is the difference? Does it matter what the flow is over the media or is it mainly the idea of water falling in the open air over the media that is important?

    How high does the media have to be? Is that real important?
