Help with sump

Postby nurse2b123 on Tue Apr 16, 2013 8:49 am

I have a eshopps 75 sump and a hob overflow and a rio 750 gph pump. So now what? I need a list or something to take into menards because I have no idea what all piping and stuff I need or what lengths and stuff. I have it for a 55 gallon tank.

Thanks in advance for any help anyone can provide.

Hello, I just finished making my Sump functional. Just take your HOB prefilter to a hardware store and somebody there should be able to help you. All you need is some vinyl tuning to slap on the return and pipe down to your sump. I also made sure the seal was tight with one of those metal rings you can tighten with a screwdriver (sorry I don’t know what they are called). I’m sure there is a better way, but for the time being that is what I have done, and it works fine for me. The only complaint I have is the amount of tiny bubbles that appear in my DT!
