 Apologies  for  not  checking  the  thread  earlier...
 
 @Emanuel,  Syed  and  Ospark...Thanks..but  this  isnt  my  design  to  start  with,  so  I  cant  think  of  patenting  it  
 
 Its  a  universal  design  used  in  older  generation  filters(and  some  of  todays  filters  too)  and  it  has  already  been  done  by  a  DIY  expert  Mr.Perikarrupan(from  Chennai)long  ago,  you  guys  can  have  a  look  at  his  filters,  deep  down  the  DIY  section  and  his  canister  was  an  inspiration  for  me  to  build  these.
 
 @Vidyasagar..Cleaning  process  is  simple(check  the  initial  posts  in  thread  for  pictures  of  each  part)
 
 Unplug  canister
 shut  off  and  remove  valves,  leaving  in  and  outlet  pipes  on  tank
 Unscrew  the  lid  bolts(doesnt  requires  a  spanner)  and  hardly  takes  a  minute
 Media  is  taken  out  and  rinsed  with  water  from  the  tank
 Finer  filter  pads  are  discarded  for  new  ones  
 Pump  impeller  is  cleaned  
 media  is  placed  back
 Water  is  filled  to  the  top  in  the  canister
 Lid  is  secured  with  bolts
 and  the  reverse  of  first  3  steps
 
 All  it  takes  is  hardly  15mins  once  a  month.
 
 @Elang..Thank  you,  quoted  from  page  3  for  you
 
 
                                                 
Hamza  wrote  (View  Post):                

 @Natbox(dont  know  your  name)...heres  the  list  of  items  and  their  prices...
 PVC  pipe(110mm),  4mm  thick  -  purchased  this  last  time,  dont  exactly  remember  the  price,  might  be  30-40/foot  Rs80/-  
 110mm  dummy  lid  -  Rs40
 Screw  lid  -  Rs  60(now  I  have  removed  the  threaded  part  to  stick  the  acrylic  sheet)
 6mm  clear  acrylic,  got  a  16x12"  sheet  for  Rs  120
 two  tank  barbs(1/2")  for  inlet  and  outlet  -  Rs30
 One  plastic  elbow  -  Rs10
 3Xcouplings  plastic  -  Rs25
 6Xhose  barbs(1/2")  -  Rs60
 2XUnion  ball  valves  -  Rs150
 One  PVC  tray(110mm)  used  under  the  canister  lid  has  a  convex  bottom  -  Rs30
 Pump  and  wires  -  Rs150
 
 And  the  most  expensive  part  
 12xPP  bolts  n  nuts(kept  6  in  spare)   -  Rs240(20each  set)
 
 If  we  consider  only  6,  then  Rs  120  went  on  the  filter.
 
 3xTeflon  tapes(10m),  I  wasted  a  lot  of  these  -  Rs  30
 Araldite  -  Rs60
 PVC  cement  -  Rs20
 M-seal  -  Rs20  
 
 Total  cost  -  A  lil  over  a  thousand  bucks!(without  media)
 
 Media  costs  another  100-150bucks.
 
                 

 
 The  reliability  depends  on  the  dedication  you  put  in  while  building  it  Wink  
 
 And  even  if  something  wears  out/breaks,  I  can  replace  it  as  the  parts  are  cheap  and  easy  to  acquire.  I  specifically  kept  this  flexibility  by  not  pasting  the  joints  permanently.  
 
 Smaller  filter  is  working  on  my  tan  24x7  from  July  last  year  without  a  problem.  Once  it  slipped  off  my  hands  and  its  inlet(tank  barb)  was  cracked.  The  other  day  I  went  out,  got  the  replacement  for  20rs  and  it  was  a  simple  fix,  its  working  perfectly  eversince.
 
 @Mithun...Cant  say  the  best  as  I  couldnt  record  the  process  at  every  step,  it  could  have  helped  people  further.  :(
 
 @Bharadwaz..The  acrylic  comes  in  sheets.  I  took  6mm  sheet,  marked  it  and  went  to  a  decorative  wood  workshop,  the  guys  there  did  a  fine  job  of  cutting  the  sheet  as  precisely  as  I  required.  You  can  also  get  an  acrylic  cutter  for  20rs  and  cut  it  yourself,  its  a  simple  process  but  requires  patience.
 
 Thanks  to  other  for  dropping  by  and  appreciating  my  work  :)
 
 I  hope  I  cleared  all  your  doubts,  if  not,  feel  free  to  ask  again,  I'd  be  glad  to  help  out  further.
