    New filter, pumps and electric housing nearly finished

    As promised some pics of the filter housing progress, it has been a challenge for the builder but he has done an excellent job so far, as mentioned yesterday the window sill stuck out too far and as such would not allow the lid when up enough clearance for the drum housing as this needs to be lifted vertically from out of the filter housing when you change the UV bulb or need to do any maintenance so the sill was trashed and after 3 different attempts and ideas between us we finally got the hinges and the lid situated so that going forward I can still lift out the drum etc without having to physically take the roof off completely..

    Looking good steve nice neat job. Nice one mate. Bit of fiber glass on the window sill will sort that out. Painted white.

    Very neat Steve,I have used that t&g plastic a lot myself but got very expensive now.

    A bit of thin plastic over the sill will sort that.

    nice neat job Steve, i like it!
    you should get a little bit of heat coming through from the house wall too, to help keep things from freezing

    my missus would have flipped her lid over the windowsill though...

    Hi Dave, yes it should help well I hope it will do, I am going to celotex the whole thing inside as well, My wife is going to flip mate, she has not noticed yet, its been repaired but does not look the same there could be trouble ahead.....
