Cost: Maximum $ 60 (5 Dlls)
Step 1: Materials
1 right-angled plastic recipe
2.5 metters of poliflex or electric corrugated hose; cut it 2cm pieces
2 scouring pads
1 round-trip plastic recipe (called pre-filter)
2 3/4" plastic water hose connections with their screw
1 ball mesh or someting like that
Tools: Xacto knife, marker, scissors.
Step 2: Holes to Right-angled Plastic Recipe
In my specific situation i make the water entrance in the "small" side and the output in the "large" side because de lake and stuff disposition.
You can make it in whatever position but considering that we need water crossing all the filter materials in specific order.
Step 3: Placing Hose
I cut the head of one hose in order to set circle-rounded plastic recipe.
Step 4: Preparing Pre-filter
We going to make a hole like we did using marker and hose but in the lower part like the picture shows and make some holes to te cover just the enough to use half of te cover. Put a piece of ball mesh or someting like that inside the recipe and close it
Making this we force water to cross the mesh inside pre-filter and after that to our filter.
Step 5: Cutting Brick
Step 6: Creating the Filter
1.- scouring pads
2.- poliflex or electric corrugated hose or pieces of brick
3.- pieces of brick or poliflex or electric corrugated hose.
2 and 3 materials can change order but considering that the first material should be scouring pads
We need put poliflex in small pice of mesh like a bag of poliflex like picture shows. Attach our pre-filter
Step 7: Final
Finally we conect the last plastic water hose connection to our pump with a small piece of hose and ready to work.
Specialists recomends review the filter each week and clean when needed just using water and a brush if necessary.
