Test one on canister filter #2 was very good success. No leaking and i havnt even sealed the fittings yet. Only problem i found was i need a bigger intake. The pump i used is to big for the 1/2 in. Hose

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.
