Woodson Build - Part 9

More DIY today!

First of all, the last “double” panel for the refugium has gone on. Just got the clear front panel to do.

Also sourced some egg crate to build the pre filter and plenty of hose to start piping the system up…

The next DIY project is the shelve which the reactors will sit on…

It started by bonding two pieces of acrylic together…

Marking out a series of holes…

Pilot the holes first, followed by a hole saw…

Job done…

To finally create this…

Three loops, for three reactors, phosphate, carbon and ozone.

Each loop will have its own pump and good control over the flow using the respective ball valve. The unions on the valve and the returns will act as quick disconnects so individual reactors can be lifted out and serviced as and when required.

An idea of how it will all look…

Not finished as of yet, some minor adjustments to make, but I'm happy this has turned out well.
