My DIY. Grit Guard alternative, this is my weekend project.
-Drill (forgot to take a pic)
-Some cable ties (forgot to take a pic)
-Sand paper (forgot to take a pic)
-Egg Create / Light Diffuser. I have this at my home.
-Plactic board, in this case I'm using cheap writing pads. I bought 2 of them each $1.4.
-Cut Egg Crate to a round shape, so it will positioned approx. 2.5" from the bottom of the bucket.
-Cut plastic board as shown in the photo. Make some holes for the cable ties. This plastic board will be the stand for the Egg Create.
-Use tooth brush and sand paper or iron file to remove any plastic fragments.
-Plastic board assembly, using cable ties. More chambers to minimize water turbulence.
-Egg Crate assembled together with the plastic board part, using cable ties.
-Perfectly fit in my 5 gal. bucket:
-Fill with water, it does not float, stick at the bottom of the bucket:
-I made two of them, one for soap bucket and one for rinse bucket:
-Labour cost: 4 hours, Material cost: approx. 5 bucks
-Cheap alternative Grit Guard.
-More chambers (6 instead of 4) to minimize water turbulance.
-I am happy with the result.
