    OK, I re-did the gate valve on my Octopus NW-200 to have the actual valve before the vent stack. I don't know yet if this will fix the surging problem, but it is really noisy. I put a cap on the vent stack with a hole drilled in it to reduce the noise, but I am getting gugling, popping, and...

    Hi everyone, My new Octopus NW 150 should be waiting for me at home tonight when I arrive and I'd like to do the gate valve and mesh mods before its virgin run. Does anyone happen to have some extra Enkamat PF4 lying around that they would be willing to donate/sell me? Also, I've found the...
