I have used Maxi-jet as a reverse flow on a under gravel filter. I made an adapter out of aquarium tubing, then I cut some 1' pieces and put them inside of each other until I found the correct diameter. I also used a Mag drive 2 prefilter on the inlet of the pump. It definitely worked better that using air to drive the under gravel filter and there was not as much buildup under the filter plates.

I am not a fan of under gravel filters (old technology) The buildup under the plates can/dose cause health problems for most fish. Nigh Nitrates. I might be time to dump the under gravel filter and upgrade to an HOB or canister filter. Here a link for the best deal on Aquaclear 110 filters I've seen in a long time. $44.99 get 2
