As far as the rubber connection is concerned, that's for any movement in your tank depending on how solid the foundation is. But it will only take care of slight moment. My friend in Phuket who bought a new town house there in a fairly big estate, had to have it all dug up within a year with his toilets backing up. The tank had sunk 300m.m. where the inlet pipe was and broken free. Pretty sloppy installation.!

Just curious what the pall rings at the bottom are for, below the mesh...

To stop pressure build up if there are too many floating solids.

i asked miao to take some more pics from inlet and outlet inside the thank.
Also got her to make pic from openings in top of tank, especially for pumping because till now i not can see how they can pass the mesh with the pump-flexible hose???

All the stuff, included the mesh, are made from plastic.

Yeh they are known as pall rings, we use them in the oil and gas industry to help release gases or air from liquid. They basically increase the surface area that is in contact with the liquid. But not sure how that would work once they have a thick layer of crap covering them... :lol:

They are to increase the surface area that the organisms that digest the crap live on, it serves the same purpose as the bio balls or media you have in fish tanks filter system.
