    That was a good idea Oh No...looks nice and clean, my only concern would be the loud noise of the water...that would drive me crazy. :)

    Thanks,
    I have to install the plastic mesh screen that the algae will grow on still...i'm hoping as the water flows over that ,it helps cut down the noise:D

    Nice work Brother. :D Yeah, the noise will be reduced when you put the screen on it.
