The silencers are over the socks, he customized them in orange to match the sump. The reactor is set up that way to manifold it off of the return pump, so one pump can run the reactor, the algae scrubber and return to tank. I have done a lot of research on these sumps and everyone hasn't had any issue with them leaking , the reactor is solid and obviously have to make sure all the unions are tight and nylon screws are in place. Time will tell.What is the orange "thingy" on top of the filter socks? Love the orange and the design man..
I just dont understand why fabricators are putting reactors inside the sumps and have the fittings laid out like they do with a cover. Isnt one of the points of having a reactor actually in the sump is so that if it leaks the water goes right in the sump? In this case it looks like it would roll off and leak on the floor. Not knocking it just trying to understand.
I have this kind of luck anyway. Hopefully next one comes in one piece or I am throwing in the towel. LolSorry about the sump. It really was sweet looking. I hate UPS also. My Elite Aquatics sump had to travel 1,600 miles to get to me and I was sure it was going to be cracked when it got here. But, it was packed really well and made it unscathed. Wish you better luck with the second one. I have an L2 scrubber also and like the way yours is mounted.
