well... how about an option you could do yourself? go to a LFS and find some of the columns that your looking for, and get a dremel tool and carve out a space for the pipes you want them to cover. The "art" work is done this way and you're just removing the middle of the column to make room for the plumbing. This way you also know that it's tank safe.

just a thought.

i have thought about that and even the largest column structure that i've seen is still a little too small...the UGF pipe is about 1.5" in diameter, the decorations were only 1" anc change...

thanks...

depending on the size of the columns you are trying to use, places like home depot, menards, lowes, etc have outdoor decorative columns that are pretty large. maybe too large for what you are trying, but it is another place to look.
