    Your gonna want the water level about a half inch above the holes in the spray bar. It will work alot better in my opinion

    I see no scavenge area. Where does the unused film and floating stuff go?

    @norcalfrank. I have a screen (not pictured) that sets at an angle and the spray bar pushes the debris up on it

    Just scoop out the debris. No sense in getting complicated with a setup like this. You're not running production and cycle times arent' as important. After 4-5 dips just use a pool net to scoop out the crud and carry on.
