Ok time for an update. I finally got my filter plumbed. I decided to do all pvc
pipe instead of hose so ive been waiting for funds but anyways. I got it all hooked up and the lid to the bucket leaked so ive been debating what to do next. I plan on redoing the whole thing in big pvc
but for now i just silicone the lid. I let it dry for a few days and try it again.
