    Hey everyone,

    Any suggestions on a product to paint PVC so I can hide my skippy filter a little better? It would have to be non-toxic.

    Also, I have been racking my brains trying to come up with ideas on how to hide pond equipment. I bet a separate photo area or forum on this web site would be helpful so others can show how they have successfully hidden stuff.

    Thx

    If it is hidden well, you wouldn't be able to see it in a picture would you? :icon_smile:
    I used brown Krylon paint on my PVC that feeds may waterfall, but it is all outside the pond. I don't think todays paint has lead in it so there may not be much cause for concern. Any PVC that is going to get wet might be better off if you sand and prime it first.
