    No prob. Just post your experience if you do it. The more things people try, the further ahead we'll all get. I probably would have given up on it if I hadn't seen for the Saranwrap thing mentioned just a couple weeks ago.

    What did you stitch it with, I thought about fishing line.

    I was thinking the same thing, fishing line sounds like the ideal material to use for stitching the screen together.

    Do you think it would be possible to stitch the bag on as well using fishing line or would this affect the flow?

    Thats a good idea, maybe a couple separate lines for that with a simple pass through and a square knot.

    You don't need to stitch the plastic wrap on. It stays put due to the pull of the water just draped over the pipe. I used 40# braided fishing line to attach the loop, because I had some around. Any fishing line would be fine, but braid makes nice tight knots. I put a knot about every two inches. I've used it in the past when tore a screen while cleaning it.

    Floyd already mentioned that if that plastic cover comes off and makes to your pump. Be it the return or the one you use for your ATS you could have big problems.

    I have just got all the bit and pieces ready to fit mine tomorrow apart from the fishing line. Have to have a scout around for some.
