More details, the sump is 20 gallon, and the return pump is rated at 4500l/h will that be good enough??

Add your total liters and multiply by ten it sounds big enough if not you can add a powerhead for a little more flow but I would try to.match your pump as close possible

I take it I account for the sump 2? If so it comes to 4900 litres so I'm a little short, will this cause problems?

Is it me or are installing rodi units confusing? Give me a gambling machine I'll build it in a day, give me a rodi unit to install I'm still looking at it in the box 24hrs later lol. I don't think it helps
That all the filters were in the wrong place so that muddled my brain for about a hour lol.

Another question, How did all you guys mix your first batch of saltwater up? Do you do it in the tank?
