DIY undergravel filter help

Does anyone know of a good DIY undergravel filter or reverse flow undergravel filter? I want to build one, but haven't found any good directions that spelled things out clearly or had illustrations.

I know of none. I personally use Pefecto filter plates with Marineland power heads.

There are a couple I found. Is the same I would do it with just some slight modifications. Smaller pvc under the egg crate, 2 layers of window screen, and I would try to find clear pvc or other pipes to use for the stacks. Either that or black pipe because white would be too gaudy.
