FAQ

SHOULD I USE A TRASH TRAP AROUND MY FILTER CARTRIDGES?

When using a Flo King for filtration, the filter cartridge is totally immersed in solution. Most customers simply attach a bare filter cartridge to the pump, and nothing else is required. However, in some cases, solids may slough off the cartridge either because of their size or disposition (do not adhere well). The Trash Trap surrounds the filter cartridge and keeps dirt, metal shavings, and other large particles in the canister — and out of the tank.

The Trash Trap is available in different lengths and sizes to accommodate one, two or four filter cartridges.

OPERATION WITH TRASH TRAP
No different than without, except that you have to remove the Trash Trap to access and change the filter cartridges. You remove the Trash Trap by loosening filter screws on the pump.

There is one small hole at the bottom of the Single Trash Trap and two holes in the Double Trash Trap to help drain solution when you put the assembly into a bucket or other reservoir to change cartridges. However, you may have to pour out some of the remaining solution and accumulated solids. Hole size is about 5/64 inch (1.9844 mm).
