i was wondering if you all would post some pics of your sumps, and plumbing, and describe what you have going on inside your sump, like your water path.. i have decided i want to do a sump and i am trying to figure out how to set the sump up, where to put the baffles, and what to have inside and its locatation.. thanks alot
thanks reef, awesome link, i will be bookmarking that one. that page answered alot of questions. i WILL be doing a sump. a question i didnt see asked tho. i understand the drill a small hole on the u shaped piece for the overflow, to stop flow in a power outage, i guess need a hole on the intake and return to be safe, but what i dont understand is,when the suction is gone form the overflow, water stops flowing, but when power is returned and the return pumps kicks back on, would it not empty the sump and then burn up..since the overflow lost it suction and can no longer supply water to the sump..

so that leaves me to another question(sorry) how about instead of using the u tube with siphon for the overflow, could a person some how use a pump, to pump water into the sump, instead of relying on syphon, so when you power is restored the pump WILL come on, guaranting flow to your sump, not relying on a pump so suck air out, hoping to restore syphon.
