    Cost a lot for short length for the sizes we need.
    , buy the clear PVC, then add your own end caps etc.

    I thought it looked to be cheaper than buying just the pvc pipe as that site you can only buy 10' pieces and the 3" piece is $149 and I don't need 10'. The 3" sight glass which is 14" long is $85. I haven't checked any other sites to see if they sell smaller lengths of clear pvc but was just thinking of making a bubble collector rather than a reactor so I can run my needle wheel pump without getting all the micro bubbles in the tank. Just brainstorming ideas but sometimes I have a tendency to overthink things.

    You can by 3ft or whatever. of the 3" 6" etc...........I have some if you need a 1-2 ft etc.

    The clear 9 3/4" water filter works also.
