Enough flow.
 
Hi everone. I've just made a stockman overflow for my 270 litre tank and sump fron 1 and a half inch pipe and I have a 2200 litre return pump and a 600 pump going through my uv steralizer do you think this will be enough. There will olso be a 1200 double wave maker.

Without knowing what type, or if any, corals your planning, its a bit of a wag. Also, you need to know what headloss your return pump will suffer. That being said, around
10-20 Times turnover for FOWLR
20-50 times Turnover for corals (SPS need more, LPS med, softies etc less, TYPICALLY)
so 270 times turnover gives anywhere from 2700lph to 13,000lph.

Thanks. Both pumps are rated to do the above at less than the high they will be returning at so should be fine then . Thanks again.
