You're welcome, guys. As I mentioned, I can't take 100% credit for these modifications, I found some excellent videos on YouTube. Here is just one video, jump ahead to about 6:00 and save yourself some time.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-fhz...sQWSiy&index=1

It shows the set up of the cabinet pretty well in this video.


Oh, by the way, you will notice that in some of the pictures of our cabinet, the shop vac is on the left side of the bottom shelf, and in others, it is on the right. We keep making changes to fit our needs better, and we found there was more room on the right side for the shop vac and the hose ran at a better angle.

Those two white 5 gallon buckets in the picture are new tubs of media we have stored. As we need more media in the hopper, or if we want to use a different grit type, we will scoop some out and dump it in the hopper.

You will also notice a white plastic plug on the bottom of that IDS valve that is installed in the very bottom trap door. When you want to empty the hopper, you simply put a container under that plug, remove it, and the media will fall out of the hopper.
