ok, I'm learning all I can before I start my "big build" this fall/winter so I'm setting up a sump for my 29g just to see how the plumbing all works since I want to do a lot of my build as DIY. I went to ACE (local business) and bought 1/2" PVC
(have no idea is this is big enough), elbows and a stop valve. And yes, I had to have the handy dandy PVC
cutter since I love tools
and thankfully my husband shouldn't find any need to "borrow" these cutters, lol.
So I pulled up several youtube videos and a thread I found in another forum (shhh) and started cutting/fitting and came up with what I "think" will work. Found out that I'll have to pick up a couple more parts tomorrow when I go to town for groceries. I forgot about the T that will have the shut off attached. Also, have to pick up a check valve, needed to suck the air out of the overflow to get the siphon started. And an end cap, I think mainly because I looks cool (??)
Now that I've started putting this together, knowing I already have to get more parts, I'm wondering if I can also build an overflow for my 10g that sits on top of my 29g, and have it flow into the same sump (20g). I'd like to connect the overflows of each tank so that it's only one pipe entering the sump. Is that possible?
