Planning on starting a sump fron scratch
for my new 35 gal
gonna use rubbermain totes ! One for main sump tank, and two others to to house my intake with filtersock and skimmer, which will overflow from slits cut around top, into the big main tote acting as a fuge and heater storage, then another identical container to the intakes for the return pump with the slits cuts slightly deeper into the return tote, will use eggcrate as a skimmer for the slits as i plan a shallow sandbed and cheato !
Im all ready to start building tomorrow or thursday, i just need to know how big of a pump to buy and size overflow build out of pvc
, its going to be about 15 gallon main tote with max head from return pump to tank lip being 51 inches i do believe tank is 35 gallons ...can someone please help with calculations??
