First time sump build
So I got a great deal on a Amiricle wet/dry filter that I am using as a sump . My first sump so I have had a few questions in other threads , so I thought I would do a build thread .
First I had asked about using a sponge prefilter on the Herbie drain and got some great advice . I use pond prefilter sponges on my HOB's and after looking at a new one I had remembered that they come with a plastic insert to hold the sponge . Here it is , the black holy thing.....
I took a PVC male threaded to slip and after sanding down the threads some it fit into the black sponge holder perfectly . Another threaded piece on the other end and in it went . I will see how well it works . I figure it will be easy to take the sponge and clean it weekly with WC's . The bottom pic is the is the finished product.......
