Yehaa. 72 hrs on my carport and no leaks. I am pumping the water out tomorrow and moving indoors.
I tested all the current pumps and utility pumps and it seems all work with the exception of the return pump. I pulled the head off and it looked pretty clean so I am not sure what the problem is. If I get it working I have decided to use it as a back up and to mix salt water for changes ect.
That said I am looking at the Quiet One submersible pump model 2200 as a return pump. The tank will be in our livingroom so quiet is important.
If I am figureing correctly I will have to valve down the outflow. It is rated at 594 gph
at 10ft head pressure. If you figure 2x850 Hydor current pumps, the small utility pump on the skimmer, a 1600 gph
wave maker pump on a pulse timer and the return pump with aprox 90 total gallons of water between the tank and sump that seems like a lot of flow.
