    looks fairly simple compared to some of the designs I`ve seen, does the size and height of the compartments make much of a diff.? Whats the little goodie on the extreme RHS of the sump in your illustration?

    The size of the compartment's will depend on how big your skimmer is, size of your DSB and size of your return pump and all other pumps that are going into that chamber eg.carbon and phos reactor.
    That little gadget on the RHS would be a float switch for a Auto top up unit.
