    Yeah I did mine a few weeks ago now.

    Works well... Especially at speed. It's pretty impressive IMO.

    Default HSRK + Vararam Optimal Placement??

    I've read a bunch of threads on here regarding the HSRK placement, but I am undecided on the best place to install it. Is it better to put the HSRK in front of the filter or after the filter? I've got my Vararam coming and the HSRK will be here next week. Also, what size grommet do I need for the HSRK? Like to have everything ready for when it all arrives. Thanks!

    ?????

    Look above your thread in the thread list...

    It's a "sticky".

    The HSRK comes with its own grommet. And George is right, there's a sticky in this sub-forum showing where Charlie placed his HSRK. That placement has worked very well for me and dozens of others, so I'd call it effective.
