Default to much flow through reactor?

quick question about it,

I see that recommended flow rate is cca 400l per 1l of zeoliets

One can also understand that higher the flow, the more quickly PO4 will be reduced. That can in extreme ultimately lead to danger to corals, rtn and such.. but lets say if one reduces po4 slowly to very low levels, can we than increase the flow through reactor?

Sorry, try to answer some of your questions, if you don't like it, then really sorry

I'm not professional, I'm a user of the Zeo system, I can share some thoughts with you, I can't say I'm right

1.Keeping biology stable is good

2. The functional characteristics of ZeoVit materials should not only be a single function to reduce nutrients

Of course, as long as the flow rate is not changed quickly, it is recommended to use an appropriate flow rate per hour. The reason is: point 1.2, or even other added value.

Hope i understand your question and hope you like my answer

A higher reactor flow does usually steed up the process to decrease nutrients. As you mention a quick decrease of PO4 can have a negative impact to corals so always keep that in mind. My recommendation is to have running a flow of ~ 400 liters per hour for each 1 liter zeovit, some more or less does usually not cause a problem. If nutrients are elevated give the system some time.
