A power outage is my biggest fear and I really need to do some research as I've been out of the game for 15 years and back then I remember wet/dry filters backing up/reverse siphoning when an outage would occur. So what measures have you taken in case of a power outage or am I an idiot and missed your point in your test? Also, I assume you guys have purchased your skimmers already, but I ran into this one last night and couldn't help but snag it up (Reef Octopus 130 Essence) on Saltwater.com.I think you guys are gonna really like the tanks!
When your tanks get in, wrap some teflon plumbers tape around the internal pipes of the EXT. During my leak test, I learned that the internal pipes are slightly too small for my bulkheads and had a slow leak (see below)
I ran a simulated power outage test with the small leak and boy was it a close call. The water level in the sump got real close to the top.
After I wrapped some teflon tape around the adapter/pipes, the leak stopped completely.
Got things transfered over today as well!
I'll start a build thread after I clean the room up, lol.
