"Over vacuuming" Yeah, that's is definitely one thing that NEVER happens at my house.I agree with @addy1 - I don't think you can over filter. There's only so much that you can filter out of the water, and after that you'll just be running clean water through a filter. It would be like "over vacuuming" or "over sweeping" - you might wear out your floor or rug, but there's still only so much dirt you can clean up off your floor!
The only pre filter I have before my bog is a leaf basket, catches any real large stuff. I usually don't need to clean it all summer.The only down side is filtering before a bog filter i have nopt done so myself but many have said when they did prefilter to fine particles the bog died off that it needs the waste to do it's job well
