    Whatever, I wouln't. Years ago I modded a hotel style dishwasher - you know stainless tanks under a drainer, under a tilting hood, by fitting a 3 stage water pump to it. I never connected the healing elements up...
    Anyway, i fitted a cartridge style remote filter, and buying proper parts washer fluid it worked well, but the filter blocked. So I replaced it with a simple inline strainer - again it blocked with bits of gasket, silicon etc. So I took it out.

    We use old Cat or equivalent big air cleaners & feed the return dirty fluid into centre with gauze on.suction pipe which is outside the filter, I have mate that is a service engineer in quarry he keeps his eye open for the cleanest ones.
    It seems to work well _dirt is in filter so you just lift it out & dispose of the lot
    PS
    blow out filter before use

    I'd advise you to seal the cut edges of the worktop otherwise the chipboard will swell when it gets wet.

    It had been with contact adhesive I may do it again or even paint it with some exterior gloss

    No filter going on mine, the tank will have a weir system with three drop out chambers with the pump in the third. That’s all the Bupi has and that’s a pro bit of kit, everything gets rinsed off so it’s not vital the cleaning fluid is 100% clean. I keep a small sealey parts washer spotlessly clean for things like injector rebuilds.

    I was going make a single weir for my one like the tank on the Boxford but I suppose I could add a 2nd weir it would help. I will measure up actually I have just the gastro trays at work!
