    Here is my Engine room
    [​IMG]

    The red plug box runs on a dedicated circuit on the electrical mainboard so if anything trips the tanks power will still be on. The two boxes below runs a 12v supply for anything which needs 12 volts (auto top up, fans and pumps) I have a remote fuge behind the sump which i must still lift. The doors are vented so heat and moisture will not build up inside the cabinet. Im still trying to place where i should put the fans. I want at least one drawing air out of the engine room.

    Looking absolutely great Keyaam! In which direction is the water flow? Meaning: where's your return pump going to sit? On the left? Are you going right to left?
