    Filter housing solutions

    Hi everyone,

    Just wondering from peoples experience whats the best way to house a filter?

    I'm considering something fairly chunky either a nexus 320 or an Oase Proficlear system, is it easy to source a lift up filter house almost like a small storage chest you would typically find in a garden?
    Or is it better to go for something like a shed?

    Hi

    Depends what you DIY skill are like - I didn't want a massive shed near the pond so I bought a 6 x 5ft shed and cut it too pieces to make a neat home for my filters

    So there arent any manufacturers that build housing specifically designed for this sort of application?

    Hi

    Yes I bet if you go to a local builders yard there will be loads of joiners if you can get one to do a small job - most of my mates who are builders are looked up for most of 2022 already

    Hi

    This is something like mine - just a bit bigger - mine is lower and you lift the lid and open two doors at the front

    The shed was cheaper than buying all the wood - my friend next door used the extra wood to mend his fence
