Not sure I understand what you are saying about the pumps?


But almost any container will work

Black storage bins from Game or Makro work very well.

ml, try to describe what went wrong with your other sump, if you can give us some details of how the water flowed from tank to sump and back again, we may be able to help you.

Ok

thats a recipe for disaster. You need one pump.

Pump from the sump, up to the display tank, than water flows over the overflow and gravity returns it to the sump I will do a diagram for you

1. OK Take a picture, or draw a small diagram in paint so I can see what you mean.
2. Are you using one pump to fill this separate sump and one to drain it?
3. How is buying more sumps going to solve this problem.

Please answer these questions so we can help you

1. Kan dit nie paste of insit nie/Cant Paste it
Ek het jou n PM met my email adress gestuur, ek sal dit post/ Sent you a mail with my email addy, send the pic and I will post it
2. Dis reg jy het dit/Thats right
Ok kyk na die diagram, jy gebruik die pomp om water in jou vertoon tenk te kry en gravitasie om die water terug te kry. Meer sumps gaan glad nie help nie/ Ok look at the diagram, you use one pump to pump water to the display and gravity to return water to the sump. More sumps wont help
3. Dalk kan ek op 'n menier die twee sumps las duur DIY plum te doen/ Maybe I cab join the 2 sumps by DIY plumbing
Dit sal nie help nie/ It wont help
