Sorry I think I asked the question wrong. I ment how do I fill it with the sump and everything. How high do I want the water in my sump to be? When do I turn on the return pump? I know all the sand and rock stuff

well the baffles should only allow your sump to get so full... you want to leave enough room that in the even of a power failur there is enough room for the water thats in the plumbing down and up to the dt doesnt overflow your system.
