Has anybody ever plumbed a Marineland Model 4 Sump to an AGA overflow accessory kit for a Megaflow twin overflow tank?
The hose for the overflow connection fits right on to the bulkhead fitting, but the directions want you to use the elbow provided with pvc
. I think I can get away with direct connecting it with a hose clamp?
Also, I thought I only needed one pump for the twin overflows, so I bought the Maxi-Jet 4500 to go with my sump, but I realized that I needed two and ordered another one. I got this one because it was going to give me 1175 gph
of flow which would roughly be 5.6x turnover. Now I am going to have 2350 gph
. Is this too much? That is roughly 11.2x turnover per hour. I am planning on adding a ball valve to each return line to restrict the flow as needed. Perhaps even a T connection to send the rest back into the sump to keep it filled and to lessen the stress on the pump.
