    Unfortunatly for me in my new build the really smart ppl drilled a wrong size hole for my overflow outlet:angry:. . .
    now all that can fit is a 32mm tank connector, will that be fine if i use this and add a 40mm adapter to it??

    btw the hole tru is 37mm not even 40mm

    that should be more than enough, I got the 32mm on 40mm and running 8000lph through it.

    ZaXXX it should be fine, at the very worst you may have to ever so slightly dial the pump down.. you could do this by adding T to your return and bleeding water off to other equipment such as phos/carbo and in the future calcuim reactors if thats the way you want to go..
