ok if you are going to run the sump from the basement you may want to think about going BIG with the sump. You can use a 100 Gal
rubbermaid tub 69 bucks. they make perfect sumps since the have the bulkheads built in. you can use a Sequence 3600SEQ12 (depending on the head i.e distance to the tank) to pump the water back to the tank via 1.5 flex pvc
. the pump is only 159 bucks.
