What type of powerhead? Most have plastic guards or foam covers available. See what the LFS has to offer.

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

Take a look at the reverse flow kits on this link

I think you can probably get the parts to do the same basic thing at a LFS (the kits tend to be pricey) but this will give you a good idea of what to look for.
