    Hey guys!

    Pleasure meeting you at MACNA. I was the guy who had the fortunate pleasure of taking home that TS-44 you had there. I have it in my stand, and noticed it's kind of lonely without an ATO container. I looked on your site and I don't see an atomic green laminate available for your ATO containers.

    Is this something I can get?

    Thanks,
    Isaac Croas

    Hey Isaac! I agree it needs an ATO! Yes will will have them available in all the standard sizes we offer now. If you would like to order one now just order a CL ATO (in your case this one http://synergyreef.com/product/10-gallon-ato-containers-ss-44-cl-44-series/) and will build it for you. We are working on getting the new stuff loaded to the website, but been busy since we returned from macna! Thanks again and hope you enjoy that awesome sump!

    Hey Rick,

    Thanks for the prompt reply! I need to measure the stand room again when I get home. Might need to do a custom size or go with a smaller 5 gallon as I'm not sure I have 8 inches of room for the 10 gallon.

    Also as I had to do this on my current ATO container: is there a way to put a float valve on the lid so I can use that to shut off the RODI system?

    No Problem! We currently are not doing custom so you could go with the 5 Gallon. You can easily add one of the float valves to any of them. Just drill a small 3/8" hole with a drill bit.

    I put in an order earlier today. It was for a 10 gallon and I put notes on the order.

    If you can, can you let me know you see it? Don't want to waste your time or mine getting the wrong order on this guy :)

    Thanks,
    Isaac Croas

    Just got it yesterday, it's impressive! Packaging was equally as impressive. Changed out the john guest push fitting for my john guest float valve push fitting and tested it last night - worked perfectly.

    Thanks guys! I look forward to putting pics up of the completed build.

    ;Greedy;Greedy I should have asked if you guys could do the white/green laminate again! I asked about a year ago and at the time you guys weren't doing the laminate with translucent colors. My white/red CL-44 is coming on Tuesday :( oh well, live and learn I guess.

    Looks awesome Meldrath, I'm definitely jealous!

    It matches my sump I got from them at MACNA. Right now I'm working on plumbing for the new system... it's been painfully slow but absolutely perfect. I can't wait to finish everything! Big plans! :D

    @Jlahr16 we just released it at MACNA. So close. But you will be happy with the white/red scheme. It looks great as well.

    Oh without a doubt! Just means I'll have to do another tank in the future and order a white/green as well ;)

    Hey guys, wanted to give you a "long term" feedback on this sump design. Absolutely love it minus one thing - on the right side where the drains are into the refugium section there's a plate with thumb screws... this thing is literally the most pain in the *** thing to get in place. I think the transition section from the drains to the refugium should have been baffled - it's next to impossible to clean in the drain section or even get your hand in there to tighten the bulkheads.

    My 2 cents on the matter. Outside of that, excellent design - the adjustable skimmer section baffle has been a godsend. Also as an upgrade feature I've been recommending this to various vendors - stop using acrylic thumbscrews. They are absolutely PITA long term when calcifying critters get in those threads, I know it costs extra (thus the upgrade option) but magnetic components are just so much easier. I literally destroyed my fingers screwing and unscrewing those things - had to buy a pair of gloves just to reach in and screw stuff in.

    @Meldrath
    Thanks for the feedback. We really appreciate it especially since this was our beta version of this style sump. We have already made some changes to the production version that we currently are selling and the bulkhead access was addressed and fixed. We have stainless steel thumb screws that we have been testing for a while to make sure they don't have any problems in saltwater. They are holding up great and will be something that will added as an optional upgrade very soon.

    It's the fact that it's a screw - calcifying worms and other tiny critters get in those threads and they become impossible to unscrew or adjust.
