  1. bulk filter sock buy

    These are the ones... http://www.thecarycompany.com/liquid-filter-bag-21wn85 Since there is at least some interest I will likely order them later today. I would like to keep at least 16 on hand as my new sump is running 4 socks. So I will have 30-some left to sell.

    If they use 4" filter socks... which I am almost certain that they do.

  7. Basement/Garage Sumps and Construction

    ouch!! ok, one comment and then back on topic. i shattered the tibia, so they lined everything up, took xrays, and then pounded a titanium rod down the middle.of my leg. I left the hospital 2 days later with an ace bandage!! +1 on the pansonic fans mentioned above. they are super nice!! we had one in our old basement. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    have you seen this? nothing like a 10d nail straight through your tibia to wake you up in the morning. now my right leg is worth $43,000 Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    here is a good test to determine if you know enough to be plumbing. what is the purpose of a P trap? dont google it! when you find out you will be like wow.. that makes perfect sense. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    i gave the waterproof thing a lot of thought.. i eventually decided it wasnt worth it but if i was... i would build a sloped plywood floor, then lay shower pan liner over the top and up the walls about an inch. and then cover it with that open grid fiberglass floor panels. but for the time and $400 i just bought a dedicated aquarium shop vac Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    you are not going to cover it with acrylic. you are going to cover it with polycarbonate. If you would like to know why then take a trip to seahorse. professional plastics in tualatin is THE source for all things plastic in this area. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  14. Basement/Garage Sumps and Construction

    i would probably go with the latter as you could pretty easily install a sump...but if the floor doesnt slope towards the sump it won't do a whole lot of good. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    Dont get started... the last job i got bids on they ranged from 17k to 50k. 17k was high but doable. I wont repeat here what i told the 50k guy. Like i said... talk to the mrs. because you may crap your pants if you get an estimate. I never understood why people are so scared to build things and work on their own houses etc. All the information you need is readily available on that internet thing. A little common sense, lots of questions.. you will be fine. Just dont go cutting drywall with a circular saw. LMAO. sorry, but that is the funniest thing i heard in awhile. Dont feel too bad though. My GF was cleaning the house and i was still sleeping. where is the shop vac? huh? "its in the garage." about 10 minutes later i hear it running.. i start to wake up...i hope she realizes she needs to attach the filter because i just cleaned it. i come out of the bedroom.. DAWN!!!! WHAT ARE YOU DOING!!! She has her head in the wood burning stove, vacuuming out all the ash.... with no filter..... lets just saw i feel your dusting pain. . Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  16. FS: Equipment! Cool stuff! 😎Good deals!

    ok cool. i have never seen these before, it would be an awesome way to control basement located pumps for feeding the main display, or controlling skimmers etc. going to have to dig in and do some research Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    i would start working on your wife now. While there is a LOT to think about, it is not all that difficult but for each of your "dozen things" there are another 8-10 things that need to be done. And on a finished house, the fees go WAY up for getting the work done by a contractor. example: i ran a sub panel and all the lighting and outlet circuits in my new workshop in about 3 hours. Thats like 7 different circuits. It took my about 14 hours in the new house to run the sump to DT plumbing. You definately need to get someone out to your house before making tons of plans. You can put walls, fans and wires anywhere. Plumbing..specifically drain lines are the real challange. Also things like sub panels and what not depend a lot on the locations of things and how full your existing system when trying to decide if they are worth it or not. I should be at the holiday party.. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

  20. Basement/Garage Sumps and Construction

    ohh, and there is only ONE pump you need and that is a reeflo. Insane head distances and built like tanks. When you get one of these things you will say "wow" now THAT is a real pump. I have the hammerhead/barracuda. check out there website. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  21. Basement/Garage Sumps and Construction

    No real need to hire someone, its all pretty straight forward stuff. Well, it can be straightforward or you could cut into some drywall and find a huge supporting beam like i did [emoji4] if your basement isnt finished its pretty much childs play. The basement in my new house is finished so I had to use every trick in the book.. including a sweet little endoscope that blue tooths to your cell phone. i was going to post a build thread but i really didnt see a point. But maybe i should as i just got this ridiculous skimmer... which is worth its own thread. lol. (thats a 5 gallon carboy next to it) Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

  24. Rusting metal stand

    i was just getting an estimate to get the stand i am building powder coated. He said that if it was a saltwater stand i should do there two part coating which is an epoxy primer and then powder coat. It was pretty cheap considering. 6x2x30 stand was like $175 for powder and $250 for the two part system... Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  25. Jebao Lovers- Apex Controller Adapter $20

    nice find! i know people looove to hate on jabeo pumps but i have had several running non stop for over 3 years without a hiccup. The are quiet, solid and cheap!! I just picked up a DCP 15000. It is adjustable per watt from 1 to 110. What is really nice is the new fittings. They are built like unions with an oring seal on the pump side so 1.5" pvc glues right in and you can still remove the pump for maintenance. 3900gph DC pump for $130. sign me up .
