Haha nice! The bucket idea sounds pretty cool. It would be neat to use 4 buckets as the sump and add 3" holes to some with pvc there to flow to the next!!! I may have to try this now!

It is amazing jw! Now only if I could get my daddy or brother to make me one! They don't trust me with a saw since I cut my finger almost completely off when I was 6 I just wanted to make a armory for my GIJoes.... They really needed it

I would get one from online. I really like the lifeguard aquatics models. I've used them in the past with great success. Very powerful and very cheap

Good to know! I was thinking if I get the 65-75 I would do a sump to, or just a big Rubbermaid canister..
