That is interesting. you'd think there would be several holes for a closed loop. Maybe just plug it?

I am so dumb. I had assumed the returns were 1" since drains were 1.5". I bought all the 1" plumbing (piping, fitting, loc-lines, valves and nozzles). Then when I tried to fit into the return bulkheads...I realized the return were 3/4". Damn.

I requested 4x1" holes in my over flow for 3 drains and a return. I didn't specify overflow hole size so I did the same thing. They drilled 3/4" and I had bought everything for 1"!
Having 1" all the way up to the elbow for before the bulk head really helps with flow though. I"m running an m1 at 60% and it's very strong.

Slow going. I finally moved the sump into the stand, and I picked up John’s used external refugium chamber. Not much room left for anything else. Still have to do the piping next, and clean up the used skimmer and pumps.
