Hi ive been looking around for something that shows me how to calculate what power my return pump should be.
I stumbled apon
Reef Central Online Community
But i dont know which formula i need to use because I dont see one that allows me to put in the size of my hole (1.5) and the length of my pvc
pipe down to the sump.
I read after searching "pump" in this forum that I need to calculate my "maximum overflow rate"
How do i do that?

(I dont have one of those boxes that the water overflows into, i just have one of those cone shaped things that is screwed onto a hole that is 1.5inc diameter)
Also people will similiar situations (75gDT) (30gsump) are using a product called MAG 7 or MAG9. So i just need to know the GPH
pump power i need.
If anyone can help or point me out in the right direction that would be great!
Thanks in advanced.
