    Le Trap Sluice

    Ordered a Le Trap Sluice this week and should be delivered mid week. I will cut out the end to make it a river robber. I have aluminum angle and flats to make the reinforcing frame. Question I have is, if i use this in slow moving creek should i make a flare to put on it? From what i have read the Le Trap is prefered with fast moving water high volume.

    if you don't have the Flairs you can get by with v'ing rocks to direct more water to the sluice. Just a temporary fix.

    Never tried a Le Trap but they sure look like the downspout splash block I can get at the local hardware store for $6: http://www.guttersupply.com/file_are...39065_9833.JPG

    Here they are side by side: Notice the gold would easily wash down the sides on the splash block.

    I noticed that too but thought I'd share as so many of us like to make stuff work. I thought I might cut one up and put it at the front of a home made sluice as an indicator.

    Which pump? First video called out a HF pump, 264 GPH
    264 GPH Submersible Fountain Pump

    The second you could barely hear over the music 'walmart' so looking there I found this one at 600 gph looking just like the video
    SeaSense Bilge Pump with Float Switch - Walmart.com
