    What return pump do I need for ±600L tank (forgot mine, can't access the calculators), its 1.2 x 800 x 600. Would a OR3500 suffice? Noise is an issue so whats quiet?

    It should be fine,try and reduce the number of elbows on the plumbing side of the return.

    I'm guessing 4 elbows to one outlet. Adriaan, who's building the tank has suggested 2 outlets which could hamper it even more. What your thoughts?

    agree...I also use one as a return and it's quiet. I have an eden that feeds my chiller. Also quiet and no problems so far...
