Thanks A/S I was just looking at some tape at ACP. I think I will try to find the bags at supermarket and get some tape.

I just did it to a single fish bubbler, Mine works off a coil with a small bellow inside with an air bleed hole. I just glued a hose around it and held a bag tight around the hose to see if it worked and it sucked the back right down. I guess you can also build it with a bicycle electrc pump you just draw off the vent side.

Very nice write up ,and very simple. I will look for a double pump like yours. Mine I just looked for the the second hole on the outside of the little air bellow, not knowing it could be switched internally. I like the double air chamber you have. Sorry going off topic. Back to the Build. Thanks Guys

Guys check this one out. I bought at Wallmart because I wanted to get the project done. $22 bucks its called the Whisper Quite 30-60gallon. With the newer technology I did not have to even use any glue I unscrewed the 4 screws on the bottom pulled the top off. I then pulled the two bellows to find they had orings. I simply turned the white plastic 180degree and reinstalled them and put the 4 screws in and done. You can see in the pics. Hope you don't mind me posting this. Thanks guys Im glad you showed me how you did this, it inspired me to go buy a new one.
