Im just curious to see what flow rates some are using for their specific sump sizes.
Sump= 150 gallons
Pump= 4.7K GPH
When rebuilt there will be 2 of these pumps rather than just 1.
Sump= 200 gallons
Pump= Mag Drive 2400 (probably getting about 1500 gph out of it after head loss)
Fantastic folks, keep them coming
I have a 30 gallon sump under a 125. Use a mag 700gph
40G sump with a quiet one 4000 1017 GPH
4.5K per hour
For my 75 gallon aquarium - 22 gallon sump (sterlite 90 quart container), quiet one 6000 pump. Rated at a little over 1500 GPH, but with head height and 90's, I think I'm running around 900 GPH. I'm using stackable drawers for a trickle filter and have around 8 gallons of bio media (mainly scrubbies).
300 Gallon Tank w 60 Gallon sump and six foot bio-tower. I'm running an Iwaki MD-70RT, 1100 GPH.
Haven't built my yet (this weekend) but 55gal sump /w Mag Drive 12 (aiming for 850gph) got a bigger pump for head and expansion in future
