    We had a customer who came in and wanted the sump but with out the ATO (they plumb it direct) but wanted a refugium instead. Take a peek at the drawing, I could use some input or maybe some better ideas??

    Perhaps an option for 5 liter chambers for pre-mixed Alk/Calc/Mag. A demanding system uses as much as 8 liters of Alk each month.

    Is this customer going to purchase this sump with the pictured reactors? If so, then place the 3 supplement containers where the media tower is located. This would allow more room for the fuge.

    Just an idea
    You cant possibly know how you want to run your reef-system, until you have ran one.

    Geese Deb I would have to make the sump dedicated to alk and cal to make up for the demand you monsters have!!

    Dave the media racks are actually baffles, so if I stuck it in their it would block to much water pass-through. I was thinking of perhaps stealing an inch hear and their and making the dosing box on the outsides of one of the ends??

    The dosing boxes (IMO) should be a detachable units (3 separate) attached to the front of the sump . IME I dont use the same amount of dosing liquid for Alk, Calk, or Mag. So the containers empty and need to be refilled at different times. If they are on the front of the sump its easy access and a good reminder of how full they are. If they are detachable (individuality) You dont need a long nose funnel or like to refill, in underneath , or around other obsticals

    A > Fresh Water Reservoir (10 gal.) for hook up with ATO unit. Area left on lid to plumb for ATO fittings.
    B > Alk & Cal. Reservoir for hook up with auto doser pump. Area left on lid to plumb for ATO fittings.
    C > Sock Chamber with two sock holders. Lid can be drilled for any size of your drain lines
    D > Reactor Chamber. Can fit both the duel Carbon/GFO Reactors
    E > Skimmer Chamber, currently showing the 10 inch skimmer but can be fitted with the 8 inch or 6 inch models.
    F > Media Rack Chamber with two racks for your media bags.
    G > Return Pump Chamber, lid can be drilled to accommodate the fittings of your return pump
    H > OBD Duel Carbon/GFO Reactors
    I > OBD Pellet Reactor, Comes with pump and is plumbed into skimmer
    J > OBD 10 inch Skimmer, Chamber can be customized for 8 inch or 6 inch models

    >All sumps now have a full lid system to help keep evaporation down in the stand, also with this we have section of the sump top (white) where we can drill it to accommodate your plumbing for your drain lines, return lines, dosing pumps, ATO units and so on. This is done so its all clean and easy to plumb.

    >All baffles are now done from full height to add alot to the overall strength in construction, something to add years of service to the units.


    Ok so as with anything we build the unit can be customized to almost any size (if needed alot smaller then we would change to another design) The unit can be sold as a stand alone unit to house your equipment if you already have a skimmer and/or reactors of your own.
