Nice job there! Good work keeping plenty of glass around all sides of the hole (the top).

If you want to be able to have control over the water level, get a 90 degree bend bulkhead strainer. You can turn it to modify the water level. Also, you can build a modified Durso standpipe behind the tank to reduce noise and improve performance. Do a google search of "Durso Standpipe" for details.


BTW, John at www.jehmco.com is my supplier for bulkhead fixtures, etc. He's a great guy too, and he'll answer any questions you have. Feel free to keep asking here too though!

yea, i kinda figured on the 90. on my rack however the pump out flows the exhaust thats why i placed them lower. if water levels a problem i may box em. i planned on venting the exuast which should eliminate noise. im gonna dial er in before any scales see the tank.
