I'm not sure of the exact outer dimensions but it's 55mm plumbing on the 150. Basically, it's snug as hell with a 1.5" rubber coupling. If you go PVC on this you need a 2" T to go over it and a decent amount of tape.

As for the cap, yeah you need it. It acts like a muffler just like on the overflows. Without it you get the toilet sound which is almost worse that the splashing

Has anyone bought or know anyone that has bought one of the off brand heaters on ebay?

heater | eBay

I want to get a 150w or a 200w for my mixing station. It would only be used for a few hours a week at most and live in the empty brute the rest of the time. I don't think I would put one of these in my DT but in a can for a few hours a week? Thoughts?

Rubber coupling - seemed so much easier, plus I'm sure it fits better in my sump. I've checked three times to make sure the skimmer was running.
