PMP question :
    #3076135 - 09/01/04 01:02 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

The tubes that run from the pump, if they are run through holes in the top, are they siliconed after, is this necessary?
This is the only lack of information that maybe has an easy answer. thanks q

I think rubber grommets are used instead of silicone.

Well, without rubber grommets, yet a tight seal, should contams be an issue?

I'd assume if concerned with contams you could always place a coffee filter over the intake of the air pump.

My friend used silicone and has had no problems, just make sure you seal it well, and let it dry completly  :thumbup:

I just drilled a hole that is a little smaller than the hose that is running into the PMP. Don't have the exact measurement, but it worked. I triedt to use little silicon as possible

i just converted a standard rubbermade/perlite chamber into a pmp last night. I used one of those drill bits that goes like an arrow > (real small, then bigger, then bigger). Using that, I was able to make a very tight fit. I don't believe silicone will be necessary with it. Its air tight.
