Overflow Covers

Postby aquabox » Mon Oct 07, 2013 6:51 pm

We've had several requests and a continued bashing from MarboroRed to come up with a solution for overflow covers. The radius Marineland cover will be the first to prototype. This will manufactured from black ABS material to match the overflow. Materials are on order and we should have something in hand this weekend. Here's a pic of the current design.

It will over lap the overflow by 1" on the radius and have two slides with thumb screws. It'll sit on top and the slides below will allow it to stay in place using in back corner and interior radius for support. Stay tuned.

These will be priced at $15 each or $20 shipped. We're thinking two can fit into a single parcel, so two shipped for $35.

We also believe that the design would work just as well for rectangular overflows.
If you're interested in this, we just need the outer dimensions and the thickness of material used.
Also where it's mounted in the center or corner.
Please send us an email with your particular information so we don't make this thread to confusing.
And it'll help us keep track of individuals. Thanks.

I want 4 of them:
My 120 has the two overflows but they are not in the corners. Instead of the pie shape above they are more of a half oval.
Also need one for the 40b and one for the 60 cube.

Here's what they look like installed.
Some before and after pics of my diy job. There was a slight gap with mine and sat up on the rim so my screen top didn't fit flush. All good now.
