How would you make the skimmer chamber adjustable without adjusting the return chamber?
Actually this is really what they envision for their systems. I understand what you are saying, but with our closed systems, more efficient skimmers and 10x turnover rates, the baffle placement we use will work perfectly fine. We actually have sat down with Triton reps and have spoken about their sump design in detail. I am confident our systems will work perfectly fine. This sump pictured was a prototype model and has had a few design changes to the production models. There is one change to the sump that we have made on production models that is more important than the baffle placement. Can you tell me what that would be? BTW royalty check is in the mail
It could still be done on the last baffle. The problem is you introduce tons of bubbles to the return section with this setup.
Two features I noticed, that I didn't understand:
The bar in front of and just below the refugium's scalloped overflow weir, nice touch btw. I don't know what that bar is. The second feature I couldn't place is return into the skimmer chamber along the back wall, middle of the sump.
The first one is to help catch the cheto from clogging up the scalloping baffle. Helps keep the ball from wanting to creep over the baffle.
Second are heater holders. We were not using them at the show. Normally there would also be bands that hold any round heaters to the back.
But the other main change would be placement of the dosing holders. The dosing of elements needs to be done into the crash box to allow them to be mixed before entering the refugium. They are then catalyzed by the macro algae.
It looks amazing! I love the colors on that sump, I actually just got one SS-34 with the same colors and I love it!
I have to add that the design of the sump is amazing, everything is well thought and it is dead silent. Picture of my sump just before I finished the plumbing.
Awesome job! That looks great! We have designed our sump line to integrate with the Shadow overflows as well to make for a silent system. Having a quiet sump is part of that as well. Love the feedback!
Is that under a red sea reefer? If so which one?
You're spot on about the dosing lines.
I wasn't referring to the heater holders. I'm assuming the 3rd input is the emergency drain line.
Quality of ReefSynergy is just above the others. Excellent sumps
Yes, it is under a Reefer 250. The sump is a SS34 shortened to 31"
(This is an old picture before filling the tank, a lot of equipment has changed since then)
(Most updated picture of the sump)
Well packaged as always.
The only issue I see right out of the gate is that triton is a 4 part system with only 2 guest fittings in the crash box it doesn’t have enough fittings.
Excited to get it unwrapped and start work on the upgrade.
Awesome. Glad it arrived in one piece. We take the extra care to make sure it does
We decided to do the dosing holes in both spots as Tim at Triton said it would be fine in any high flow areas. We definitely like them in the crash box the best, but didn't want to clutter it up too much.
This was exactly what I was planning. I guess a video review should be next on the list once I get it unwrapped then I work 13 hour days this weekend.
Thank you for those extra touches flipping the sump and the 1” bulkheads make my life so much easier.
Just placed my order yesterday, Black and red. Looking forward to getting that knock on the door. This will be my second sump from you guys
Nice thread! What is the bulkhead in the middle section for?
Awesome Shawn! Thanks for the continued support.
That's for plumbing a 3rd drain from our shadow overflow.
I do have a question on two possible mods I may need, if the sump still needs to be built... I’ll pm you
Never mind, I just emailed you guys instead. Thanks!!
