Did You Know...
 
FAQs   How do you know if the FBB is functioning properly?
FAQs        
 

Test the system water for ammonia and pH. If there is less than 0.5 ppm of ammonia, and the pH is above 6.5, the FBB is filtering properly. In addition, the media should be evenly distributed and upwelling. If the media is compacted, the pump may have shut down or a FBB probe is clogged.
