    Actually I can't see that there's a difference. They are both 1/4"

    So looks like L/S 24 is High Performance with a higher pressure rating. I think the OD is larger than L/S 17 with the same ID.

    Not sure on how it translates but should be ok to use as long as you dial in the flow rate on the head unit correctly.

    I've not seen a lot of these setup, but I've only seen pushing before, out of curiosity, why do you pull?

    Couple reasons:

    * if the output gets clogged pushing will eventually cause the o-rings to leak or potentially cause some damage from the pressure.

    * If the reactor has a leak, pushing will just continue to fuel that leak and take water out of the sump. Pulling should stop taking water out of the sump if pressure drops enough in calcium reactor.
