I also worked on the garage for a few hours while I was waiting for the rain to stop in Daytona. I'm not going to get much work done tomorrow while the race is on While cleaning, I went through a huge box of wires I've had forever and found a really old set of ikea under cabinet lighting. I finished cleaning off the other 8 feet of the new workbench and wired the lights up for future fragging, plumbing work etc etc work area.

I have considered that as well but since I'm only running 4 tubes I'm really worried about losing any light right now. I'm probably going to order some of the mesh online, get the frame parts from home depot and just take my time. It's just going to be ugly though with all the ins and outs I think.

oh I almost forgot... the skimmer is killing it already. I've got all kinds of crap in there! The only thing I'm not happy about is the noise from the return water splashing. I have read some ghetto T mods to shut it up but I'm disappointed they didn't add a little extra on this to polish up an otherwise amazing product. This should come with it!!!!!

It's totally silent! I know this in my garage but for someone who has this in their family room or something it's perfect.

How big is your outlet that you attached the hose before the t ? I really need one for mine because it's so annoying. Also do you even need the cap on the top?
