    Iron..another possible mystery source

    This was in a review on an economy cartridge filter: Literally crumpled like a soda can inside the filter canister after about a month. The wire mesh inside was completely rusted. Horrible filter. I personally use the Pleatco filters and am very satisfied.

    Pump for DIY solar heater

    Are these the correct parts?

    Yes..flange towards strainer. You had mentioned on a prior post my existing impeller size(SP3210C) should be fine with the V-green 1.65 ...any advantage with a different size as i will be ordering soon.
