IN OTHER NEWS:

Quiet around here, with nobody guessing what Shrimphenge is all about. So I'll let the pictures do the talking...

DK's already recycled the Aquavac bucket, back to its original role.

Yeah, it's actually just a mechanical support structure so I can leverage a cheaper, smaller magnetic stir unit to use as a jumbo one. The magnet mover is plenty strong, it's just that the platform is quite a small footprint.

That middle picture is a perfect optical illusion, I realized; it looks as though the pipes are half-inch taller than the plate, but the picture below shows the truth:

Nope, not soup in the box... something MUCH MORE SUBSTANTIAL.

Angus the Rottie isn't my puppy, but rather my God Dog, y'know I'm the godparent. But reports put him at 4 months age and I think 40 lbs right now.

********

Sometimes, you get lucky.

I'm sooooooooooooooo glad I sprang for Aquavac v.3.0 chamber.

Nearly half inch solid walls of polycarbonate (DK is very fond of polycarbonate), 1.5 gallon dead volume (she measured it earlier today) - perfect - and this baby is built.like.a.TANK.

DK has discovered to her delight that serendipity handed her something really great.

Inside the chamber lid (just look at those nearly half-inch thick polypropylene walls in that lid!!!), there are supports that EXACTLY fit the drainage pipe, such that the pipe can be snugly fit up into the supports. DK will be taking great advantage of this, stay tuned...

She was already taking advantage of the ribbing of the drain pipe, but this little feature is going to make it even more advantageous...

********

Who can guess what my chamber is, and what I paid for it? I'm curious if anyone can find a better deal than I did.

The corrugated drain pipe is simply the insert to be used in the new Aquavac chamber. The chamber isn't yet pictured, as I want to see if anyone can guess:

What is the new Aquavac chamber, and how much did DK spend on it?

It was not cheap, at all. However it is good.

V.e.r.y...g.o.o.d....

The actual aquavac chamber is piece of 6" or 8" clear PVC with female threaded ends in which this black corrugated piece slides into with your threaded end caps with O rings seal to make a chamber...You are going to drill and install an inlet and outlet port to circulate the water..

SO..........if it were six inch clear PVC, it would cost DK $171 plus $25.60 in shipping for a two foot length - Nearly $200 just for the raw clear pipe!

Then, a six inch clear PVC cap to bottom out the pipe would cost an unbelievable $234 plus shipping.

Yowza!

And then... it would be PVC. But it is not. It is polycarbonate. And her cost was less than $434, shipped.

Did DK mention that she has a fondness for polycarbonate?
