I’m still trying to comprehend... Question - in the second picture, is that a floor drain? So all the sump/ plumbing stuff is in one room with a drain... seems obvious but don’t see that many people doing it.
Robert, explain to us what all the plumbing is for.
I regret not doing this. It is still a possibility, but I am set on minimal water changes.Yep. Floor drain running the entire length of the room. Floor drain is my standard requirement for all new fish room I designed. That particular one in the picture is a little more fancy. It’s connected to the home’s sewage system.
Are those pipe insulated under the concrete? How do you deal with the heat loss for a such long distance or water travel underground?
Very cool, If I ever get rich I am having Robert build me a system.The four holes on the bottom of the tank are for close-loops.
Some of the pipes under the tank goes to the opposite side of the room to the sump. Some of it goes to a detached garage about 100ft away where the water change/RO reservoirs are located.
I am employing a dual ghost overflow systems (from Modular Marine) on both ends of the tank and they each require 3 drains. So, 6 (2”) drains total, tank drain line, fill line, and return lines, plus a 4” wire conduit so that I can feed all cables from one side to the room to the other. Also has two spare lines. All buried under 36” concrete slab.
