    Tried a new way of mounting seios. I'm very happy with it as it's less messy than the standard rubber cup mounts which don't work after a year anyway.

    Yeah...... and you tighten it by screwing the threaded section down.

    Thanks Sunburst. I owe you one anyway. I cut the water intake holes bigger on all of my seios after reading your thread. One of the best mods ever!

    That's right, and then flatten in a vice. The flat section obviously looses rigidity, so I added the strip of perspex above it. The overal result is very rigid with no movement, even on startup.

    The nuts on the pumps are the ones that come with it. The top ones onto the bracing are DIY'd out of a thread/smoothe union and threaded pipe.
