reef ready plumbing kit

I purchased the reef ready plumbing kit by deep blue. It came with no instructions and I am having some problems putting it together. I'm new to sumps and plumbing of any type in general so I don't really know how to explain the pieces.

Here are some pictures




If anyone has experience with this or knows where I can find some instructions that would be great.

Yeah I've figured out all the return parts. For the part that drains to the sump we had it, but only as a hole, and obviously in the event of a power outtage that would not work. But I can not find a way to get the larger pvc to fit.

I think I may have used the wrong bulk head on the sump itself. I'm waiting for my girlfriend to bring some wrenches so I'll get back to you. Thanks.
