New 14 inch diameter X 20" tall

Post by mikebike on Sun Oct 20, 2013 2:36 pm

A fellow on Craigslist was selling some acrylic cylineders 14" in diameter.
So I contacted him and bought one and had him glue in a bottom and cut a top.

I how have a new round tank to build.
I want to drill the bottom and put a drain in to my sump - bought that too<G>

I hope to incoporate a center drain and overflow into the sump.

I will add photos as it goes together.

PS: does the composer have a spell check?
Cheers

I have to get a few parts before I can start assembly.
I intend to have a float valve to prevent sump overflow on the drain, but need to read up on sumps as I have nevery used one before.

Sounds like a cool project Mike,

Spell check?

it will underline and potentially miss-spelled words and you then highlight the word and right click on it, that will give you potential options. If it's a long winded post I compose it in Microsoft word and past it in after all of my thousand misspelled words are corrected.
