Carey you can split the two lines with a T thereby making 4 drains.
If you use a T in a drain, be sure the outlet hose is at least twice as big as the two inlet hoses are. Otherwise there will be a big restriction. There will be a small one anyway as a T won't drain water quite as fast as two separate drains/hoses can.

Thanks guys, glad that the pump I have will do the trick. i will be asking questions when the time comes for plumbing lol.

Since we are on flow, I was thinking of trying some powerheads other than the koralia's I use so much. I 99.99% am sure I will not be using vortechs but have been looking at the tunze's and sicce powerheads. Anyone have any experience with these? Dor the sicce i was looking at this set

Sicce Wave Surfer Controller with Voyager HP 3600 & Voyager HP 4000 Pumps - Bulk Reef Supply

It has a 3600gph and 4000gph powerheads. When I look at the tunze's I'm not sure which ones I would want, they are kinda expensive.

What do ya think guys?

Yeah, I always tend to go back to the koralia's LOL. If I go with the koralia's I already have 2 1400's so I figured 2 more, maybe 1400's or one notch down which I think is the 1050.

the sicce have the controller with them too and my reefkeeper doesnt work with koralias, only tunze and ecotechs. :-( It works, as far as on/off but it wont create waves or do anything nifty, which I know isn't necessary but would be nice to have.

I;ve also heard good things about jeabo ones too but can't seem to find them at any online retailer......

It's kind of in the category of dimming LEDs, they are great to have, but not necessary if you set things up right. I like to spend money on more water so I can raise more coral. I will regretfully pass on power heads that can do cool things and dimmable LEDs. Although the only real reason I don't have dimmables is I would have to change out everything I have to get them.

If I remember correct you can hook the jeabo up to the reefkeeper will take a look but I think it can be done. That a look on ebay they have for sale on there.
