I've heard of people using plastic grids that that can be found in sewing stores and the craft section @ walmart. The stuff is meant to be like a rigid screen. Roll it up and use zip-ties to secure it. I have not tried it but it seems like it would work.

Good luck!

Well, water need to still flow. Maxijets come with their own intake covers, they work well, just keep the covers clean.
