I have a 20H ill sell for $20...good for sump.
I also have a 30" sump....$50
House cleaning!
Id look for used tanks as glass sumps....less $$$
Plumbing.....Menards is the best!
I also have 3-1" bulkheads $5ea and 2 screens $2ea.
PS all this stuff is at what paid for it.

if you must DIY....Yellow Pages under glass ;)

any place cheap for cutting glass for baffles? I thought I'd see if there was a place others had used already. Menards north or south? I was at the north yesterday and they didn't have a very big selection.

K & M Glass is pretty good, I have not found bulkheads in town and order them online-Fosters & Smith or Dirk in Red Wing.

I think there is a couple of people in the cities that make sumps.

I have always used acyrlic for my baffles in my sumps. Just find a hardware store that has acyrlic (3/16" or thicker) and have them cut to size. You can always cut it yourself with a table or skill saw. Then get some GE silicone (can't remember exact type) and glue them in place.

For plumbing supplies I always bought from www.savko.com
