Hi,

I am trying to upgrade undergravel filter with reverse flow powerheads in 120G tank.
The problem is...

1. Reverse flow powerheads are more expensive than Maxi-jet series.
2. Reverse flow rate is just 50% of original flow rate.

Then here are two questions...
1. Can I use Maxi-jet 1200 for reverse flow undergravel filters? Is any modification or adapter necessary?
2. Is reverse flow much better? Or do I have to just let undergravel filter run without enogh power? (currently it is running with weak air pumps - I don't think it works efficiently)

Thank you guys!

I am trying to upgrade filtering power of UGF.
Current UGF is running with weak air pump, so I am questioning its efficiency.
Converting UGF into reverse flow UGF might enhance its filtering capacity.
What do u think?
Thanks. :D
