    Setting up my new 525XL. Which power head would work best? I'm thinking of two Gyre 250's.

    I should have added that I'm brand new to this and getting in slowly so for now I don't have a controller to run everything on a single interface.

    I have two Gyre 250's on my Reefer 525XL. All the flow you will ever need. Good choice.

    It must be from the noise of water splashing coming out of the pumbing.

    Hi, I'm i've been slowly setting my 425XL over the past few months. Just finishing the Manifold and reactors. I used 1/2 inch PVC and Spears gate valves and placed a 1/2 inch union at the output. It doesn't add much distance and gives me the flexibility to change things out in the future if need be.

    There are a few detailed posts in this thread by @Broadfield with the adapters and sizes. He's pretty thorough so I would definitely look for those posts.


    Use this as the "Search this thread only" it pulls up a bunch of the post you're going to want to read:

    3/4" MPT
