Hello there,
We are looking to get rid of our filter socks and use the rollers instead. My question is what parts of the sump do you remove? the box where your overflow and return water return to and the filter socks section or just the the filter socks section and leave that glass box intact? insight is appreciated Thanks

Either will work, if you remove it all the return to the tank will hook directly into the Clarisea (that's how I did it). If you leave the glass box area intact you'll need to do a bit of pipework and solvent welding to put an angle on to connect the Clarisea onto.

I've attached a photo of mine....

Awesome, thanks Nathan80! Can you show a picture of what it looks like from behind by any chance? Is it just empty behind the Clarisea? Did you end up puting the filter roller up on something to give it better height or is it just sitting on the bottom of your sump?

There you go dude - few different angles there. Its just sat on the bottom of the sump.

Only slight annoyance is as the roll starts to get full on the dirty side the door won't shut completely for a few days until its ready to change so I have to leave it slightly ajar (which I'm happy to live with as it makes life so much easier overall)
