Looks like a nice rig gaboon, no fleas there
1)Both pipes will need lengthening. a)At the base of your durso, ie as the pipe exits tank base, fit a ball valve and then extend pipe down into the first skimmer chamber.
2)The last elbow on your return pipe i would change to a 45 degree imo
Versatility...Not critical but at the very least a coupling. I like the versatility of being able to strip and check and unblock/clean if necessary. The valve option simply would allow you strip and not have constant drip drip wetting floor and cabinet. And should you need to pack up and go, you simply pack up and go. Should you need to modify in the future ie put in a T piece to supply water to a new refugium , dsb, calcium reactor etc the pipe can be easily removed.Sunburst, why would you put a ball valve under the Durso, I have two and no ballvalve in either and have no hassles at all
The rest I agree 100% with.
Kanga if i may...You right you don't need them. Do not glue them in at the base. Always nice to pull out for inspection if you suspect blockage. Do you want me to post pics of what the base should look like.Kanga, I found this link, is this correct? the pipe used here 1¼. That seems like the size of my return pipe. Is there an easier way? I dont understand why I need parts "5, 4, 3, and 2"
