My 1st sump

Took me 1 day to gather the parts, pvc, mag drive 9 eshopp overflow (these 2 came in the mail in the AM), pot scrubbers, filter woot, activated carbon with new media bag. Started building this at 7 PM FInished at 1 AM last night and **** is it worth it. Had some trouble with tubing for mag drive couldn't find the threading for it so instead used zip tie and clear tube so far so good. Priming overflow is a pain but once it started it looks pretty good. A little loud at times but can be quiet. Also added spray bar it's not straight the holes I made but good enough.
