      Hi Aswin...since I haven't used that particular media, I can't comment as to its efficacy. It looks similar to K1 and other manufactured plastic media but that's as much as I can say. I used K1 because the manufacturers stipulate the amount of feed that a given quantity of media will accommodate. Can you approach the supplier for more information?

        What about incorporating a fluidized sand bed after static bed instead of a k1 moving bed (Preferably a mini form of "Cyclo Bio Reactor", Designed by marine biotech.inc, which needs less pressure to get fluidized and is designed in such a way that the sand will get a cyclonic movement along with lift & have a provision to remove heavily loaded sand from top )
