I enjoyed this product. There's a little bit of space in the front of the filter where I'd recommend adding pouches of activated carbon. I couldn't tell you how much. I put about five pounds in but there's still space for more. I've had no issues with the pump. There is a little bit of leakage from the back of the filter but I feel like some extra clamps could stop that.
