DIY canister filter

Anyone else build your own canister filter? I built one and ive been having a tough time getting my pump to move warer thru it efficiently.

I did and I would like to thank Eheim for the motivation. I fashioned a three foot high, 6 PVC canister filter for what is almost 90 gallons. What pump are you using? What diameter pipe did you use for the supply. Where is the pump located in relation to your other connected equipment.
Forgot how to post a pic here otherwise I would. HTH
