DIY Piping for Tank


Recommended Posts

For those keen in doing your own tank piping and thinking of buying it from TaoBao, the image below is very useful. Remember to check if it’s China spec, UK spec, US spec or Japan spec. You can buy adapter / converter if needed.

 

During my planning / learning phase, I paid a few school fees to buy and try and fit.

 

When I am done, I will share my completed project but till then, this is what I have gotten so far!

Hi Sherilyn.
What pipe size do you use for your tank...
My current is 32mm for overflow and return...
I’m planning to reduce the new one to 25mm for overflow and 20mm for the return..
My tank size is 4 x1.8 x2.
