    New tank was just an open ended lock-line. I didn't have a nozzle. Next I will be printing the usual fan, but thought I would try this vortex flow accelerator. It actually worked to increase flow. Only tested by feel as I do not have a flow meter, but it was very noticeable and tank has a lot more movement.

    Not my design.

    This is an eductor only there is a twist inside and out that spins the water column as well.

    I have the code for a standard one as well though.
