Thanks guys!

The ready....homemade! I will take a pic of it and post, but I used a rubbermaid container and cut eggcrate for dividers. I used AutoCad to draw the skimmer parts and had the company I work for laser out them out of stainless steel that you see in the front. The container is surrounded by 1/2" styrofoam insulation to protect it in the winter for freezing.
I will have to look again on the pump to see how many GPH it is pumping but I wish it was a little more.
