      A few months ago I saw a video of a wet dry filter that had a spinning spray bar over their bio balls. It looked like the spray bar was impelled by the water draining from the tank. Where can I get one? Does a company make these? Is it a DIY thing?

      Just FYI, they clog easily and stop spinning. They are pretty old school and were used mainly when DLS (double layer spiral) was the most popular media available.

      Back in the 80's when I saw my first wet/dry's the spinning spray bar was all I saw. Somewhere in the 90's they became extinct.

      if you really wanted to use a spinning spray bar, it would have to be with water that already has been mechanically filtered. This would stop the solids from clogging the pin holes in your bar.
