I am at the point I want to put the whole dang thing on Ebay right now!!!!
I am sooooooooo tired of anything to do with plumbing
Let me explain my pain if you will... I am trying to put a refugium under my 90gal. I had the guys from the LFS
re-plumb my pump with flex tubing, but they used a lot of non flex tubing so I still do not have much versatility in moving things around. I have a rather large sump, but was able to sqeeeeeze (took well over an hour) in a ten hex to act as the refugium. Then the hard part, putting in the overflow from the 'fuge to the sump. I had to saw off part of the return brace and nix the drip plate and sqeeeeze and curse for about an hour to get this part of the tank set. My problem now is that the return water drops about nine inches making an incredible racket that elicited some very harsh looks from my spouse. So I try to connect a tube from the bottom of the return brace to a lower level in the sump, you guessed it no threads and no easy way to connect a tube. Then I try to tape and cement it to the return brace and it rewards me with about a second and a half of perfection before pulling a Detroit Tiger (for you non-sports fans a total and absolute colapse!).
So now I have a obnoxiously loud water fall under my tank without any ideas on how to fix it. To top off my miseries my attempt to route my water from my skimmer to the 'fuge seems to be foiled because the hose from the simmer kinks up to the fuge.
I have had this tank for almost two years now and I really feel like pulling the plug!
Thanks for listening to my pain.
