i think i may also try to start the pvc only overflow soon. it would be nice if sweety pie would go with me to the hardware store but she gets about as board with that as i do with her shopping/looking at shoes.

i think i will build it out of 1.25" and maybe try to combine a couple ideas into one, nothing drastic though.

Funny, when it came to building my tank I was the first to go to home depot. I think I actually spend so much time there I was able to help ppl find their PVCs... And one dude was hitting on me so I called him my Home Depot boyfriend ^.^
but to her defense: you guys kinda get that weird stare in your eyes when you get to a home improvement place LOL

SHOES ARE YOUR FRIENDS (for your soul)


Sorry I know, another not-constructive comment from the blond section (:

its all good. its just a recognition of our separate interests.
the other thing is you most definitely take possession of your tank. for us its our tank. and i may be the more obsessed one between the two.

oh and steel toe boots ARE my house shoes.

yeah the last time i was looking at home depot for pvc i think i had a boy friend too. could have been loss prevention though...

Well... Not an engineer, but u have 1/4" more volume of water going through... I'd say 50-75 more gph... I know my CPR overflow required it. If u look at the CPR gph and PVC dimension it should give u an answer.
