Thanks, I was also considering a PVC overflow "box" When I have drawings I will post. What do you all think of using 3" or 4" pvc with the drain inside....Hmm having a hard time picturing and it is in my mind
Ok Here are my wild rantings in picture form for my overflow.
First Pic is simple the overview of the drain system.
Now Here are the overflow Towers. I am looking to draw from the bottom level of the tank with these. They are 4" PVC around a 1" durso stand pipe with a bulkhead in the bottom of the tank. Ignore the cut out, I got a little happy wanting to show the inside workings
Here is the surface skimmer. It will be made of 2" pvc with slots cut across the top to allow the skimming. I will drill 4" pvc to encase the stand pipe, or I will reduce to 1" at the ends and skip the 4" and just have the stand pipes. My thought on the 4" pvc is to reduce any noise.
Will place a "T" in the middle and add a support brace to keep the skimmer from sagging.
Well there it is. Am I just plain crazy, making it too complicated, or both?
Thanks for all the knowledge I have gained here. Before MFK 55 was enough. That will just be sump size from now on.
is a witch hooter colder than others? I dated a wiccan one time, they seemed pretty warm to me.
How would you balance the flow between the surface skimmer and still keep enough suction on the bottom drains to keep the floor clean of debris? I thought surface skimmers were really only for saltwater tanks?
