Sump

Post by carl456 on Wed Feb 11, 2009 11:56 am

Nice sump, looks the same as mine. Any reason you decided to have the return pump in the middle as instead of one of the sides?? What are you going to put into the areas on the sides?

My New Sump

Post by Slough Shark on Tue Apr 07, 2009 12:07 pm

Was going to have a custom sump built. Due to the area given under my display, this is the biggest the sump can be and still fit.
Let me know if there is anything that anyone would add.
Any help would be much appreciated.
