      Yes, we can get panels of PVC here as well. As far as drawings go I’m an engineer so those won’t be a problem. But I really wanted to know if he had any issues with the panels leaking or any input on what he would do differently if he had to do it again.

      The filter is still working well. There is no leaking at all. Only little problem is the top cover bowed a little. Since covers are closed with rabbit joint no water leak out from the top. I opened cover last months after two years running. Cer-media has some erosion, but not sever. I guess my top distribution tray distributed water gently. It helped a lot.

      If media has to be replaced, I will replace with RIO Ceramic Media.

      Great, the bowing is the PVC exposed to the sun and thats to be expected. In my case the filter will be in the garage so no sun will hit it. Now to build mine. Any pointers or what you would do differently?
