I'm kicking myself so hard right now I'm ready to scream. I finally picked up the final plumbing parts today for my sump and I get home and realize the overflow is missing one of the bulkheads. This is going to be fun trying to find one the same size since they went from 1 3/8" OD threaded to 1" ID smooth wall. I ended up picking up some PVC
that I'm gonna run down from the overflow then switch to flex pipe into the trays for filtration. Any ideas what's best at this stage. I was planning on setting the tubes open ended into a drip tray of filter floss and a large filter pad. There will be a lid covering this tray which I am planning to drill a hole for the tube to sit in.
Since I am using a Tupperware tub for the sump I have been thinking of running 2 tubs parallel with several 1" pieces of PVC
drilled into each other to connect the water flow. The one would be for filtration and the next would be for my heaters and the return pump. I am also thinking of putting a baffle in that one around the pump and then filling the rest with plants. Not only will it give me more room doing it this way but I will also increase max capacity from 35 gallons to 65.
