    Red Sea 350 Plumbing Help, May 18, 2018

    Hello everyone, I recently decided that I want to hard plumb my tank, but I'm a noob when it comes to plumbing. Some people offered to do it for me for about $150-200 + the cost of the supplies, but I want to try to do it myself ot save money for my aquarium top.

    Anyways, I have a Red Sea 350, I've spent hours looking at videos and looking through forums with no real success. So here I am asking the pros.

    Here is a look at what I want to do:


    I have a list of equipment that I think would work, but I'm not sure. I also have the Vectra M1 for my return pump. I basically want to do all the main plumbing with gates and do the reactors last. I'm just not sure if 1inch pvc would work on my m1, and I just don't know what to use to connect directly to my Red Sea 350 at the end.

    *1/2" PVC Socket Gate Valve Spears 2022-005 ***this would connect from the 1inch 40 PVC 90 Elbow to the reactors**

    *1/2 in. x 5 ft. Furniture Grade Sch. 40 PVC Pipe in Blue ***Reactors pvc which would connect from the socket valves to the reactors**
    Model #P012FGP-BL-5

    *1 in. x 5 ft. Furniture Grade Sch. 40 PVC Pipe in Blue **main pvc from vectra to Red Sea plumbing**
    Model #P001FGP-BL-5

    1" Schedule 40 PVC Tee - Socket x Socket x Socket (401-010) **These would connect from the main 1inch pvc to the gate valves***

    1" Sch 40 PVC 90 Elbow Soc 406-010 **For the 1in pvc to make turns**

    Also, what are these for ? I see people using them all the time

    These would be my reactors, for carbon and GFO, I need two.

    Thanks in advance... really appreciate the help, I hope this helps people in the future.
