Slotted Tank Filter in Tank---How To and Where
Permalink  
 


Below, you will see a pic of the slotted pipe filter and the clear ag hose with the white helix.  A pvc pipe acts as a sleeve to keep it in the bottom of the tank.  My Father heated up the end to give it a wider neck.

What are your thoughts?

This is a really cool idea Lori. I didn't understand it at first. Having the chemical line plumbed at the bottom looks a little cleaner, but then when I was setting up the All Flo I realized the benefits. 

Now you're not locked down to one tank. You can pull from just about any tank you want within reach. The pvc filter stays at the bottom of the tank and eliminates the need for an inline filter.

Can the slotted pvc be purchased slotted or is that something your father does?

Great question, Micah!

It is a well point. We purchase long lengths of it slotted. It is used down here in sunny, humid Florida to put in shallow wells for irrigation.

I found that if you live in an area where the soil is clayey or loamy, you can't get it!

Thanks again for the feedback!

I have a similar setup.  I didn't know about slotted pvc when I built mine.  I just drilled a bunch of small holes in the pvc.  Do you think the slotted would be better?  I live in Fla too and haven't seen it.

The slotted pipe eliminates bigger chunks from entering the pump. It is soooo easy to make.

Lori, that is a great idea.  I am so tired of filters that SH eats through or do not allow enough flow.

I looked at Lowes and Home Depot today.  I live in Orange Park Fl.  Clay county.  Do you know where I can get some of the slotted pipe?

Order one from PWP. They have them made up with a 12' x 1" clear AG hose attached.

I have used this type filter with the PVC sleeve all season. Works just fine! Don't try it without a sleeve, though.

It's brilliant, Lori!

It solves a number of problems for me.

Pics were very helpful.

Thank you.

This probably isn't the best place to post this.  If not, please advise.

I use the following after mixing powdered additives to a 5 gal.  I pour the mixture into another 5 gallon; then pull the bag.  It will contain any undissolved clumps.  Pouring that mix into the tank ensures nothing larger than the mesh gets in.

I haven't tested long enough to know how long the mesh holds up to SH, for any long term immersion, but for straining, it works very well and is convenient.

Not sure about these, but the ones I get from local Sherwin have an elastic top that holds as you pour.  Solvent resistent and reusable.

I feel that this is the PERFECT place to post this valuable peice of information.  We find that clumps of undisolved powders is one of the leading causes of pump failure or down time.

Nice job!  Glad to see some good information
