one more. i hope its as handy of a feature as it sounds.

i used p-trap parts as you can see. this one has a clean out that i will drill and tap for the nipple for the lift pump.

if this is too much flow, i seriously doubt it though, i can duplicate this in 1.5" and still use the p-traps. anything less than 1.5" i have to use standard 90*'s

dont kid yourself bud, you have def picked up a TON of info and knowledge in the last few months its extremely rewarding to pick up this info and pass it on to others i will def let you adn everyone know if the garlic works out of not. best of luck with the DIY project. You have my respect in that you have decided to build it yourself instead of just throwing down cash.

thanks unicorn. a few months ago you bet. all of you are great so thank you all.

sweety pie put some vinegar in the skimmer compartment to help speed the break in of the skimmer. now its nice and frothy in the cone. amazing. silicone is still holding strong with no leaks too.

im looking forward to tomorrow and seeing what this 2" pipe can do. if it works well i will finish the one inch overflow too and run it solely for the refugium.

tdwright1971 suggested it in a pm. and that has been mentioned a few times before in different thread for different people. im lost on why or how it works but it when from a cone with mater moving in it to froth in a heart beat. i think she only put a quarter of a cup in. maybe less.

maybe its the acidity that helps remove all the assembly oils?
