    So I've been setting up a small frag tank, reading up on stand pipes when I came across durso pipes..Hopefully someone else here can see this and use it.

    Durso Standpipes

    Anyhow, the principle was really easy to swap over to my skimmer. Lemme show you a before and after and the mod I made to get it there.

    Here's my skimmer now:

    I did it all with the skimmer running, I used no glues, just cut to make a tight fit. I used 1" pipe inside the skimmer and a 1" 90 degree elbow. Best part of all of this is it's not permanent.

    Awesome, I needed this desperately! I need to go buy a 'street-L' to be able to fit it into the overflow.

    Thank you so much gdbyrd
