    Hey guys, im in the process of building my very own skippy filter system. But I am having so much trouble finding the grating that they use. Im in england and have searched and searched for this stuff. Anyone from this side of the water know where I could get some? Many thanks [​IMG]

    Does it matter if the grate used is metal? I was thinking it would rust and damage the filtration process. Any help would great, thank you [​IMG]

    Quote:I really don't know what i'm talking but if you are refering to where the water goes into the filter then be very careful that they can't get caught in it. in other words if the suction is strong then they could get caught in the grate, it's happend with children in pools.

    I think Wifezilla would know something about this - see if you can get in touch with her.

    You want plastic, not metal.
    I found ours at the home improvement stores, but not sure where you'd look there for it.
