It's pretty easy. If you don't have a saw, you can get wood cut @ Home Depot or Lowe's, buy a cheap screw gun and a box of screws. Search stand builds on RC or R2R and go from there. Any questions, PM me or start a thread about stand building. There's plenty of great people here that will gladly help.
Good Luck,

Paul

Started gluing some plumbing, need to take a break as the fumes are unbearable even with windows and fans on. Don't ever remember the usual purple primer smelling as strongly as the clear. Oh well, live and learn.​

Small build update. Ordered some more plumbing fittings and pipe form BRS. Next Thursday or Friday plumbing should be completed, followed by filling this bad larry up with some water, sand and rock.

I am surprised I never thought to paint the frame of a sump.... it looks nice and will make your under-carriage look nice!

I was told this pump needed replacing, but after playing around and not screwing the front cover on completely, it is up and running in this bucket.

Small update with some 2 x 6's I had laying around in the garage. I built this saltwater mixing station the other day with my Dad and daughter. I know it's overkill, but it was free wood to me. I'm going to take the BRS RO/Di unit out from under sink and mount it to the vertical board. If I didn't have 1 barrel filled with saltwater and rock, I'd start on plumbing up the mixing barrels.

Some filters

and tubing came yesterday, so I'm going to work on this project today of mounting the RO/DI unit and changing out the filters.

Couple of completed pics. Installed a drain into the waste pipe under the sink, put a ball valve on the supply line under the sink as well. Installed an RO Flush valve on top[ of the RO/DI unit. Don't mind the antique wall phone, lol. Not my house.

This build is the bane of my existence, stuck in the doldrums on what I can do physically. Here's a quick little update on some stuff that came in the mail a couple weeks ago.
