I'm thinking the 1" PVC
for the siphon might be a bit on the conservative side.
Just so that I understand this setup, this is not a drilled tank and a siphon will be used to move the water from the display tank to the sump, correct? Will it be simply a siphon (with a screened intake) using 1" PVC
pipes and elbows leading directly to the sump? I've been following the stand build but perhaps I missed something. The thing I don't understand is what happens when the return pump (nice one btw) is shut off? Will the siphon continue to move water? If so, when would it stop? I have seen DYI siphon setups and there was always some type of overflow in the design that would dictate when the siphoning should stop (and not break the siphon). Would it be easier to use an overflow box as such as this one?
