awesome DIY! :clap:

Hi Everyone,

I shut the tank down shortly after it started, due to overheating. I never sorted out the chiller.

I am getting the tank back together with a new sump, return pump and stand, plumbing and chiller/heater.

Here are some progress pics:

The outlet pipes were far too noisy with this configuration.

Image

Hopefully it will be improved with this version which incorporates a taller weir and full siphon pipes.

Got a new sump made up tonight :) Just need to get the return plumbed up and then build the proper finished one. I'm waiting on a 1" BSP tap to cut in some bigger drains.
