 Why  dont  you  use  a  pump  which  can  be  attached  externally?  You  will  only  need  the  outlet  hole  (which  you  already  have).  Easier  access  to  pump,  no  need  to  drill  hole  for  powercord  and  more  internal  space  for  filter  media.

For  someone  who  might  be  wondering  on  performance  of  the  canister  filter,  its  working  flawlessly  for  almost  2  months  24x7  now.  No  clogging/leakages  at  all,  and  I'll  be  cleaning  it  for  first  time  this  weekend.                

 Very  neat  finishing,  you  have  an  art  for  your  DIY  projects  either.
 Great  stuff!!  Clapping

 Hi  Hamza,
                                 I  am  getting  inspiration  from  you  if  you  are  free  during  weekend,  I  would  like  to  visit  your  place  and  have  a  close  look  at  it.
 with  best  regards,
 Sudheer

 Sorry  for  late  response,  I  couldnt  check  the  responses  on  time  and  I  almost  forgot  about  this.
 
 @Vireesh...Thanks!  
 
 @aquaholic99..the  idea  was  to  keep  the  cost  as  low  as  possible.  So  an  external  pump  would  have  costed  as  much  or  more  than  the  whole  project  itself.  Theres  certainly  no  problem  for  space  inside,  if  I  have  to  keep  more  space,  I  could  have  used  a  4"  taller  pipe  instead.
 
 @Hrishi...You  are  welcome  whenever  you  are  around..
 
 @Yogesh...Thanks  for  the  appreciation!  
 
 @Sudheer...You  can  drop  in  anytime,  just  give  me  a  call,  I  hope  you  have  my  number.

 Thanks  Sai,  the  process  is  called  priming.  
 What  I  do  is,  I  fill  the  canister(to  the  brim)  with  water  prior  to  installation,  then  lid  is  secured  tightly,  pipes  are  attached,  then  it  is  plugged  in.  Once  the  pump  starts  and  pushes  some  water  out,  it  creates  vacuum  inside  which  sucks  water  in  from  tank  through  inlet  and  the  process  goes  on.  Sometimes,  this  causes  a  little  drop  in  water  level  inside  filter,  but  unscrewing  and  rescrewing  a  couple  of  bolts  on  lid  briefly  lets  the  air  out  and  water  levels  again.

 Frankly  speaking  Hamza,  you  seriously  should  think  of  patenting  this  canister  of  yours   Smile

 I  had  gone  through  this  thread  and  i  shud  say  its  a  very  good  work...
 
 @Hamza  -  I  couldnt  find  anywhere  in  this  thread  where  you  have  mentioned  the  price  of  the  water  pump.  Apologies  if  you  had  posted  it  earlier  and  i  missed  it.
 
 If  you  can  post  a  link  wherein  we  can  buy  it,  it  would  be  great.
 
 Also,  how  reliable  is  this  filter?  Do  you  personally  recommend  us  to  build  one  like  this?
 
 Thanks,
 Elang
