Sounds like you are exposing yourself to a lot of organic solvent
Richard. Wouldn't silicone be a healthier option, even if it is

Rather than using silicon to glue the netting on, you can use clear PVC
cleaner. Use a little cleaner on the end of the cut piece of pipe to
it up and then set the netting on the end of the pipe. It should "tack"
and become partially stuck around the edges. Then dab on more cleaner
top of the netting right over the edges of the pipe. After one or 2 go
arounds with the cleaner, the netting should be embedded into the PVC.
set for an hour or so until the PVC has hardened. Check for loose spots
dab on more cleaner if needed. Trim excess netting away with a pair of
scissors. I find this to be less messy than silicon. For netting I use
polyester mesh netting from Aquatic Ecosystems with a mesh size of 1/32"
(Cat #M417). Its pretty tough stuff which rarely clogs for me. If it
a quick scrub with a toothbrush or test tube brush cleans it out. At
for a piece 84" x 1 yard I have enough to last for years.
