      Cetus Sieve modification

      Hi, I came across a Cetus Sieve that had a modification done to it. The outlet has been capped off and the bulkhead placed on the bottom of the sieve. Has anyone made this modification before? If so, what was the situation that you needed to do this modification? did it work better? Thanks

      Never done the modification but one thing I've read about the Cetus is that pushing the limit of the
      max flow causes air to get sucked to the pump, like all sieves. My guess is it was an attempt to pull
      more water through the sieve without it sucking air.

      Also a potential mod for gravity outlet. This sieve started life as a gravity fed sieve with a pumped outlet.

      The pumped outlet is 1.5" and is way too small for gravity operation.

      Thanks Steve and DragonFire for the feedback - do you think this better than the original setup?

      My thoughts are that if they're both functional (don't leak) I might use both and wye them
      together before the pump with valves on each one and get the best of both worlds. Then if
      one or the other are pulling air and you want to adjust things or eliminate one all together,
      just use the ball valves to adjust whatever is needed.

      It'll work just fine. Make sure the Cetus is well supported in either use case. The sieve is heavy when full of water, and may deform if inadequately supported.
