you mean a sump pump?? or a sump like used in saltwater? I am freshwater. The guy in link didn't really use any high tech tooling, just did everything by hand instead of using drill bits to make the holes.
I have decided on a quiet one 3000 pump, has rating of 600GPH at 4' height, with 1"inlet/outler that should be plenty, might even be able to take it down to 3/4" on the outlet side, to make sure the "filters" never run out of water? Do you think that will be an issue? or could I go 3/4 all the way, or stay with 1"
