| | Lily pipe v spray bar?
I'm trying to decide between the ADA style Lily pipe or a spray bar for my filter output.
I was of the understanding that a spray bar will give more overall circulation and minimise possible deadspots. Obviously there's many variables i.e. hole diameter, length of bar, positioning, direction of flow etc. but could you say one is better overall than the other in terms of function?
I realise the lily pipe is more aesthetically appealing but does it provide sufficient overall water movement?
What are your thoughts, experiences, opinions on these two methods?
