Cool looks good. What size tank is this for? Are you going to put stuff in it into bags?

Nice, I wish I had though about this a few years ago. I've got all canisters now, but I could have made my own a while ago. Looking forward to the finished product.

Nice job. Are you using ball valves to make cleaning easier? What pump did you use?

I used a mag drive pump 240 gph. Forget what brand it was. I'm using ball valve unions.

What size PVC are you using? Also I am trying to figure out how you are going to change the media?
