I agree with clive on the point that a filter media can't be destroyed by washing with tap water.
my point was just that...
Sorry clive, I was just refering to the fact that washing with tap water does kill bacteria on filter media, which from the above I asume it does?...
Don't agree clive,
why in that case do we use chlorine removers in our water changes if tap water does not harm bacteria?
I've made the mistake...
Always tank water, the chlorine and other heavy metals in tap water kill bacteria
We know that the answer is noooooooooooo tap water, but I must admit I was suprised to sit down and watch a proffesional Hagen presentation...
Sorry I can't help you there, I think it's excellent! :D
