Tom Greiner Posted March 31, 2022 Share Posted March 31, 2022 I am trying to create a cannister filter from a 3 gallon bucket with a gamma lid -- basically following the method of Joey from the King of DIY youtube videos. Right now I have a problem. When I set it up it seems to run fine, but when I unplug the pump (simulating a power loss) the syphon from the tank continues to flow in the bucket and leaks through the seal of the screw on gamma lid. I am wondering if anyone has a definitive solution for this problem. I am thinking about installing a check valve on the inflow (and perhaps on the outflow as well). Do you think that would work? Thanks for advice/comments. Tom Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
