I found some 1" plastic PVC pipe hangers @ Lowes (electrical section by the PVC conduit). They snap around the 1" pipe. They are normally attached to wood woth a screw or a nail. I used double-stick tape and stuck them to my aquarium frame. My overflow hangs on the tank so the weight is supported there. I use the PVC hangers just to stop any side-toside movement.Hi, I know this is an old post, but what did you use to mount the 1" PVC to the tank. Great idea. Thanks.
The standpipe is high for safety, so the system cannot flood on the floor. You must have an air vent and keeping it high is safer this way. It will function with the lower standpipe.. . .I am setting up a low-flow continual drip . . . . 240 g . . . overflow Input (3-4 g/hr). . . I am unclear why the standpipe needs to expend above tank height. . . . .
- Is 1/2" pipe sufficient for this flow?
- Does the depth of the inlet pipe matter?.
- Does the level of the outside "U" matter, as long as it's lower than the inlet pipe. . .
