closed loop plans??

i am thinking i would like to get the most out of my return pump from my sump and i would also like to eliminate two of the power heads in my DT... soooooooo i was wondering if any one out there has any good plans for a closed loop system that incorporates the return from the sump? and if not them just a good closed loop system to reduce the number of power heads blocking up my DT...

im pretty sure if your sump pump fails/burns out or even if it gets turned off the display will drain down to your sump flooding your room. for obvious reasons, you dont want that.

a closed loop works because its closed and not being run off of a pump that has multiple connections.
