Thanks, yes good idea, the thought crossed my mind, but do I just stuff sponge or foam or something in there without cramming, or try to custom fit.
Also, picture a 1/2 bucket cut cross sectioned vertically. Toss the front half and that is what the area looks like. However, the filter slides in vertically creating a perfect wall and the rest is pure water, which is what you prime on start up.... do you think that matters whether water or foam material?
