    A question about fiberglass screening??

    I am making a very simple screen type solids separator(Similar to a screenex type filter). I have fiberglass screening...the type used in screen windows and doors. The reason I was not too concerned, was my pre filter is a 265 gal fiberglass tank. But, I was just wondering if there was some issue with fiberglass screening I did not know about? Thanks for any advice.

    Why not just use the nylon screen instead? It is available at any Lowes or Home Depot.

    I was wrong about Home Depot Bob, but plenty of places to buy online. Here is one: Nylon Mesh, Filter Screening, Mesh Small Parts
