    Please contact ML via PM if you can help him with a sump for as little as possible (or FREE).

    Many thanks.

    Hi Frans - ANY size bigger than a metre.... His is a bit of a mess at the moment, and he would really appreciate anything - anything would be better than what he has now...

    no prob jacques, my boet has an extra tank standing in the garage (1,1 mtr) hes moving next month, will ask him whats his plans and post asap , would however still need deviders.....

    if anybody in area could help if i could organise the tank...or give ml advice on how to do it (diagrams etc), its an relatively easy job.

    ML i will see him after 7 , so should be able to give an answer then (If my HELKOM lines hold :whistling:)

    Thanks man... as long as the tank does not leak. He can do the dividers himself... That will be SUPER AWESOME....

    Many thanks for your help....

    I have a old one I used to run on a nano, but it is very small, about 50cm x 30 x 40 or so, doubt it will be of any use. If you think it might, I can get the real dims for you.

    Many thanks Ross - even though it is much small than I said - it too will work - at least he will be able to expand his current sump. If not replace it completely!

    Thanks for offering man! Much appreciated!

    Howdy

    After a looooong wait I managed to get some info together for this. I do apologies for the delay.

    The sump is 565(l)x235(w)x400(d)
    The first compartment is 190. I had a TS-1 in there with a little stand under it to raise it up a little. Then there is a 50 baffle, a 190 DSB / Fuge area and the return area i about 115.

    Just checked it out and it is still strong with no leaks.

    Hope it will be of use....
