HELP!!! How do I stop my wet/dry from overflowing??!!?!!!
Hi. I just got a whole tank set up for free from a friend, it includes 90 gallon tank, wet/dry system, protein skimmer, UV sterilizer, and a water pump. I don't really know too much about saltwater tank setup, though i have another 56 gal saltwater tank here that my friend helped me set. He is unavailable at the moment... So anyway I got the intake hose that flows the water into the wetdry, then i have the proteim skimmer and UV sterilizer that cycles in and out of it. Then i have the pump that sucks the water out of the wetdry and back into the tank. My problem is that the wet/dry box overflows w/water. The intake hose is larger than the return. Someone told me it's supposed to be like that. How do I regulate the waterflow so that the wetdry doesn't overflow? I don't know what I'm doing wrong... I put the waterpump valve to max return. Someone please help!!! I had to mop my entire house yesterday because the water overflowed, probably over 20 gal before i unplugged the whole unit and stopped it. And today my arms are so sore... I'm getting sooo frustrated!!!!!!!!! >;o (
