hey everyone, i'm working with a recirculating system that goes
tank>sock filter>biofilter>pump>microfilter>carbon>uv>tank

is it unusual that the pump is feeding the microfilter & carbon? Every time it gets clogged the water stops flowing and when I changed out the filter today the pump went crazy and started turning on and off repeatedly. I'm used to having all the filters fed by gravity so that you can have an overflow option. anyone have the pump fed setup I'm referring to?

You want all your mech filtration before the bio if possible. Polishing it before the pump is prolly better for water movement.

Putting the UV after the pump is correct.
