      Replacement bellows for Cetus Sieve

      It's not looking like I'm going to find a replacement bellows anytime soon so I am looking for alternative ideas beside the rigid PVC idea.
      Mystickoi wont have anything till late spring and I cant wait that long for a fix.
      Thanks
      Steve

      Replace it with a Ultrasieve III that has two 4" inputs and can flow over 8000gph. I replaced my two Cetus units a few years back with US3 and have never had a problem with them.

      A used a temporary fix while I was waiting to install my new bellows. I just stuffed a 2" pvc pipe down it's throat and that straightened up the bellows. When the algae was coming through I'd have to clean the pipe every couple of days, but it kept it flowin'. If the bellows is torn?

      Awesome Mike! I will be calling you today.
      Last night I pulled the bellows out of the sieve and found the split was on the first rib above the bottom cuff so I cut the bellows there, expanded this in boiling water and got it to fit back onto the inlet fitting. I lost about 2" in length doing this but at least the pond is back up and running.
      Thanks again for the replies.

      Wow! After great difficulty trying to locate a bellows with no luck, Mike really helped me out. Ordered the bellows on Friday and received it on Monday.
      Problem solved!
