    Hey Guys,

    Went into Builders to find out a price of a Durso - guess what, they have'nt even heard of it.

    Now what do I need to build my own durso, I am going to be drilling a 40mm hole in the base.:wacky:

    Don't think you will find all those fittings at builders, rather try a place like astore. I bought everything from astore, think it cost me about R60 all out of 50mm fittings

    i take it that the water height will be governed by the height of the elbow?

    The height of the water goes about half way up the elbow. 50mm fittings are easier to get.

    See the pic for the height of the water.
