Improving Flow Rate with New Filter

Since we installed the SnowPod, we noticed silt slowly building up in the water collection basin, restricting the flow. On January 29th, 2023, we installed a new, longer, intake filter angled upward. This way, as silt accumulates in the basin, the water will drain from the upper, unobstructed, portions of the filter. This solution worked well. After the installation, the flow rate through the SnowPod® increased, and the basin drained down to the exposed portion of the filter.

After installation, we activated the SnowPod, diverted water to our gun, and made fresh snow with recycled snowmelt at our HKD snow gun's highest flow rate.
