I think you can as long as it's PVC with no metal or anything (e.g. john guest type fittings)

Cheapest place I could find was ebay, what DIY place are you looking at?

PS Just checking - you know to check it's not made of tempered glass if you're drilling ... ?  ;)

Ah, didn't know they did the bulkheads etc there.

What are you using for the sump itself?
