Not sure I understand. The blower is only used during the backwash cycle and while the pumps are temporarily off. The blower tumbles and breaks up clumped media in the filter so that less water is needed to flush it.

I looked at sieve filters at one time. They were expensive but if you can create your own, it's worth a try. It does not takes much food or time to pollute 3000 gal of water when feeding sharks, but takes a while to clarify it.

NOT Moved on.
