6637 Filter

Do you use PVC pipe for the filter? I have some aluminum piping from a previous filter but it is too long for the 6637. What should I use to cut the aluminum piping with? Thank you

I agree! I am going to use a table saw on my pipe today, hopefully it fits.

i used the stock tubing from the old box and used a 45 degree elbow PVC into the filter. Been cooking along for about two years now no leaks no cracks

You could use a 4" 45 degree exhaust elbow too.

I used about 8" of 4" stainless steel pipe. The filter is sitting at an angle, but does not move and fits nicely in there. (used SS only because I had it laying around and it was cool) I would have used a piece of exhaust pipe otherwise.
