So this is my new thread
I am going to combine my others here
So this week I had Temp problems I decided I was heading down state to mt clemens to buy a chiller I picked a used jbj 1/3 hp for 550 or best offer and since the price was right I got a reeflo barracuda for 100
But when I got there the chiller was missing an inlet connector he took 20 off the price plus since I was getting a package deal he dropped the price awesome right since I bought a bigger pump I stopped in south lion on the way down and got a 275 gal icp tote .
Since my stairs are only 32 inches wide
I cut the steel cage down to 26 inches in height took the plastic out and cut it down to 31 inches

I called around the state last night and found a inlet at prusses pets in lansing
So to day I drove over to see Mike for 30 they hooked me right up
I have too say if you never been there you have to go that place is awesome it was my first time but it won't be my last
I slapped together a temporary home for the chiller she's humming away
And the reset starts

Well I see the problem!!! You are drawing it all upside down :)

Good luck! I recently did a full sump swap and it was one of the best things I ever did for my system.

I had dreamed of doing this with my IBC tanks, but I ended up getting rid of them all before I moved (I had six of them, but had only planned on using one, would be sweet to use six though!). My new place doesn't have the space for an IBC tank in the basement anyway. Nice setup! How many tanks do you have set up? Is your display tank going to be linked to this too?
