yeah. It's a page I threw up in a few minutes. I wound up having a hard time making the fitting on the bottom seal well. PVC glue won't even hold to the bucket. Rubber, like a gasket finally worked. I'm still testing the filter, only when I'm nome, for fear something could come loose and suck all the water from my tank.
I also have found that I have to use the pump to suck from the bucket. If I push into it with the pump, pressure builds up and it acts like it wants to blow the top off. It swells up on the lid. I may have to go with some larger hose...or use the smaller pump I have.
