Mod for inlet on settling chambers
Credit to: Headache
Editors Notes: Flow rates size of SC size and weight of muck. location of inlet can effect a settling chamber in how it performs a lot. slower flow rates, heaver muck, larger size SC will help a SC remove stuff.

this little mod of pointing the 90's down and extending a little piece of pipe downwards. has been noted by a couple folks in helping there SC remove more muck.

500 gal ag tank / vortex filter
Credit to: birdman
Editors Notes: it is well worth it, in checking out this DIY settling chamber with pre filter basket! More so for you folks with big size ponds! Perhaps the hurdle is getting over 55 gallon drums and moving into the bigger sized tanks for better settelment and higher flow rates through your filters. for the bigger size ponds.

Vortex Filter (55 Gallon)
Credit to: palerider23
Editors Notes: a simple vortex filter. Filter lacks possible upgrades to pre filter baskets or micro screen. Due to outlet postioned high on barrel. Special note I for see possible air being sucked down the pipe as a possible problem for some folks, note the vortex of water spinning just above the outlet.
