basic plans for DIY rubbermaid sump

Here are the basic plans for the rubbermaid sump idea. The media box, the catch tray, and the sump will be made of rubbermaid containers of different sizes. The media box will have a top on it that has 2 PVC intakes through it that goes to the drip tray and floss before entering the bioball chamber.

Looks good. Might not need to use bioballs if you have enough LR. Some people like to use LR rubble too.
