    Ya know it wouldnt take much to make a flaper thing , I mean a frickin cabnet hinge with a flaper on the inside on each end of the sump would work as well .. Right ?
    Yea they look like a neat bit of gear.

    Anything would work , but would need to be of reasonable quality as it would be going like crazy in there. No weight of course but the pins would wear quickly just due to the amount of cycling if they were crappy .

    Here's what I came up with quick late yesterday afternoon late..
    The pict sucks but its just a trial flap.


    a short clip with a water test . I cut the upper 1/2'' off to put less weight on the flap .



    i thought it worked well for a basicly slapped together flaper thing-a -mujiggy thing for keepin liquids in check
    now Im gona make up two nice ones for the sump

    The flapers on the web sight were nice but I can build them out of AL with a stainless pin and to the size needed . Besides they wanted $30 pluss shipping each for the plastic ones , we all know ya can build these for about $1 of materials and oh about $150 labor installed LOL
