Habitat - Indoor :: Filter Intake Solution?

Turtle tank setups and other indoor configurations.

We finally got a new filter: the Cascade 700 Canister Filter and it's doing a great job of cleaning the tank now. However, she keeps getting stuck to the intake. It has a screen on it so we don't have to worry about a leg or head getting caught, but she has a hard time swimming away from it. It doesn't help that she's really curious about what it is. Can anyone recommend some creative ways to keep her from being able to get so close?

You can make a barrier out of egg crate, or use a PVC tube with several holes drilled into it so it's sort of like a spray bar.
