Ok, sounds good. Thanks for the input.
So, now to other questions. First, filter socks. I have two drain lines that are now running to a filter floss pre-filter which trickles down over a bioball chamber. I am losing that setup and going to a 100 or 200 micron filter sock. I am going to buy a hob
filter sock adapter....I think a 4 inch diameter. Like this one.....
It seems like 7 inch diameter is only for much larger sumps. I am not sure if I should buy 2 socks and have each line run into separate socks, or if I should plumb both drain lines together and run it through one sock. I think 2 socks would be better, but I am not sure if that is how it is conventionally done. Any thoughts here?
Also, I am going to buy a new return pump. I am currently using one that is dry, getting old, and loud. I would like to switch over to a wet pump, but I am not sure how much flow to buy. I can't find a rating anywhere on my current pump. I was reading up on head pressure and it is a little confusing. I have 4'8" of rise to the returns in the tank. Do I multiply that by 2 since I have 2 return lines? I also have one elbow and about 2 feet of horizontal flow. Putting that all together with an equation I saw online, gives me about 12 feet of head pressure?? Argh, so confused! Does that sound right?
