Yep that's the plan. The sump is full and the tank is over half full now.. So if it goes as planned it will be running with the rock in it by Sunday .

Had some issues. The return pump makes a knocking type noise. I found the o ring between the impeller housing and pump is twisted and damaged. Hopefully I can get a new o ring and it will fix the problem . Some other issues is that the draining noise is very loud and the guy who I traded out auto repair for the stand and canopy will not return my calls. Probably going to drain the tank and until I get things squared away.

bum deal. hate that you have to go do a collections run on a guy. poop deal about the pump too.

on the flip side, if your like me, this is giving you a chance to mentally run through and think about your set up and make sure its all set and really how you want it to be.

Not sure . When this hurricane rolled into my area my chimney started leaking real bad. That will have to be fixed before I start the tank up.

Well got some good news today. Finally talked to the guy who is doing the stand and canopy. He said if everything goes as planned he will be at my house Saturday to finish the stand and do the canopy and go on my roof to see what's leaking. If it all works out I will be filling it up again Sunday .

Nice... Small step but feels huge after what happened. Trust me, being from Florida, I know how you feel.

Well got some stuff done today. Just missing one trim piece and a door for the stand. Going to paint it all black tomorrow . Also has anyone had issues with purewaterclub? I ordered a replacement ro filter set but they forgot to send one. Of course there is no number to call so hopefully they will respond to the email. Should have just went with brs .
