Need WVO setup In Eastern NY

Ok starting to get into the idea of going to a VEGISTROKE. I have found a guy in troy that has a 275 IBC container ( final storage container) a 55 plastic gallon drum with removable lid ( resturant WVO storage) and other 55 gallon drums ( prefilter barrels) so as fas as i know i have the barrels figured out and i need to find a HWH. A filter setup, and all piping and fittings, oh and also a pump. So figuring right now i can get those three barrels for about 135$ and the HWH used for about 40$ where can i get the pump and a filter setup. wondering if anyone is stepping out of the game and is giving up there setup or for people tp just help me and out set me in the right direction.

Live in Ballston Spa NY

Plan is to do a HWH and filter setup

Thanks guys and hope to gain lots of knowledge about this. also looking for a used vegistroke kit. . . . . ?

Used v3s are rare, i'd bite the bullet and buy new, the warranty with a new one is nice.

Ok so i think i have the Filter setup
Involves Using: 6" PVC pipe.
6" Cap (the bottom)$11
6"x2' peice (Body) $13
6" Coupliing (provides a 6" diameter lip for a filter bag)$8
6" adapter (a thing that changes from a slip on to a screw on end)$9
6" threaded plug (allows you to unscrew and check the filter or change it)$5

ok if you can imagine all that that is what i am going to do and i will run all 3/4" pvc pipe (3/4"x5' $1.16) and 3/4" pvc ball valves ($3.23) with random elbows ($.30) and 'T's ($2.06)

1st problem.
Found filter bags for a 6" canister but they are 4.14 a bag and minimum is 25 per order. so where can i get those filters.
1st option
Change all 6" items to a 4" setup.

Clay i plan on doing something like yours. Prefilter barrel, HWH, Pump, Filter, and holding tank. If you guys think there is a better way to do it or things i should change let me know. thanks

I would not use PVC. It will fail miserably with a little heat and pressure.
Use black steel pipe. Theres a guy on here who made his own filter head from steel pipe also so I'll look for that and u can give it a look.
I do not use the heat/settle method anymore, I build a gravity fed centrifuge and I like it better. Both will work fine but cf gets the oil a little cleaner. Depending on your personal needs and time available, heat/settle may work better for u.
But I would consider the cf if I were you.

I recomend a high heat (200*F) and settle then CF at 140*F. Skip the bag filtering. If I had to bag filter, I would got to the D2 pump and pay. Harness gravity. Its effective and free.......1G is inadequate, 1200G's gets the job done.
