How do you intend to seal the drum filter with the large waste water tube going to the drain. It acts as a vent...

Most elaborate tank and thread I have ever seen! Simply amazing, I will join the throngs of TPTers waiting to see this thing finished. Should I just check back late 2014? :P rbarn I think its safe to say with this much planning and detail you have MERMAID quality water in store for whatever ends up in this tank, LOL.

I just read this entire thread over the past hour or two...I don't know how long I've been reading but it's been awesome.

I love seeing this projects progression and the extreme attention to detail. This is the best setup for a planted tank that I have ever seen.

Not as much as you would think. The water is also not getting agitated inside the drum near as much as you would think either, even during the cleaning cycle. Especially at the much lower flow rates I will be running through it in relation to it's max flow rating.

Brown truck dropped this off today

Been reading the instructions. Very neat pump.

3hp permanent magnet DC motor derated by attaching a 1hp impeller to it.
Infinite speed control from 450 to 3450 rpm
4 preset buttons that can be set at any speed you want
Built in clock/timer pump speed schedule programmer - (it will automatically change pump speeds based on an internal timer)
LCD display shows both pump speed and watts being used
ultra silent and cool running and power efficient

Do you think this water will qualify as "holy water"? I think it should
