Sump problems

Well I have done some reserch and I have a sump but the problem is that due to the triple doors on the tank stand I wont be able to remove the sump without moving the tank so I came across this Idea of using 3 plastic rubermaid tubs (see the picturein my album) just asking what would be the best set up im thinking drain to tub 1, (some live rock maybe bio balls) to refugium tub 2(sand,algea, live rocks) to skimer/return to tank tub 3.

Not unusual to have a sump or refugium that fits in thru the back while the tank is empty and not be able to move it. Watcha gonna do with that nice sump you have in your album?

I'm concerned about the rubber becoming brittle someday and you having to take the whole thing apart anyway. No experience with the rubbermaid, but just wondering.
