      with these filters, it has two returns correct. What happens if only one is open and the other is closed. Does the system not work? Could it overflow?

      Tom,

      Is pump fed configuration possible with this RDF?

      You don't have to use all outlets, you can cap off the other(s) if needed.

      how easy does the drum come out of the unit? Trying to think of how it would be in the winter in cold climates where we are used to freezing temps for months out of the year.

      I may have to upgrade my filtration to this unit. It looks great.

      How many gallons is your pond? If itd under 10k gallons. I would recommend the rdf 35.

      I want one and theres room for future 10k gallon pond upgrade

      Hi Tom:

      I've been going through the specification sheets for your RDFs, and I think they could use a little more detail. First off, a picture that clearly identifies the inlet ports, outlet ports, waste port and plumbing connections would be helpful. Something like a plan (overhead) view, side view with referenced locations. Minimum clearances for the pump would be nice - I'm sure many folks need to figure out pit clearance before they commit.

      The quick start guides are labelled with the inlet feed specification on the outflow side. I think that's confusing. For example, page 7 of the PP35 guide shows an arrow leading OUT of the filter that says "gravity fed." Generally, I interpret gravity fed as a filter that has a uninterrupted flow INTO the filter and a pump pulling the water out of the filter and pushing it into the pond. On page 9 of the PP35 guide there is an arrow leading OUT of the filter that says "pump fed." The "P" in the box drawn in the pond, however, seems to make it clear that this is actually a pump fed filter. It might make more sense to just have one diagram that shows two installation heights, one for gravity fed and one for pump fed, after all, the plumbing is the same, you just install at a different height and adjust the pin connects.

      Also, I'm not at all clear what the red X installation on page 9 is warning about? Is this a filter that is draining faster than filling, or is it a filter that's plumbed backwards?

      It also seems like there is a gap in the product line. I see the Eco 22 has 2 inlets, 2 outlets and is rated for ~5800 gph. The PP35 also has 2 inlets, 2 outlets and is rated for ~9250gph. Then it jumps to the PP 65 with 6 inlets/6 outlets and ~17000gph. Thie picture on the front of the PP35, however, seems to show four inlets.

      Based on my plumbing, a 4 inlet, 2 outlet model would be the easiest drop in for a Blue Eco, but it doesn't look like that's an option? How easily are they retrofit with a bulkhead for additional inlets, or does the PP35 actually come with four inlets?

      Sorry to nitpick, but if I'm having trouble sorting this out then I can only imagine how someone new to pond building or RDFs is going to fare! I'd very much like to see you succeed with this, and I'm getting close to just pulling the trigger on a replacement RDF so that my BE rebuild can be a winter project...

      With regards,

      -t

      We have been moving since the end of May and we just finished.

      Once we are settle in, we will make videos to explain each unit more clearly to the consumers.

      All unit are set for gravity fed from the factory, if you need the unit to be pump fed, we will help make changes to the sensor, cable and pin.

      All unit also built with pump fed outlets ready. This mean the outlets are already there and if use pump fed, you need to close the bottom outlet.

      The PP35 is larger unit which can handle more flow, the previous version had 2 inlet, the newer version will have 3 inlets. Which will accommodate more flow.

      Its very hard trying to read and understand while you are not looking at the unit, once you looking at it.

      Hi Tom:

      Do you have the PP35 with 3 inlets, yet?

      Is there room in the units to add an additional bulkhead to accept additional 3" or 4" inlets?

      Thanks, and congratulations on the new space!
