    Special thanks to Aaron.Herk for coming out today and providing me with some advice and most importantly, reassurance.

    nice build.

    I use a section of my basement in the unfinished part of it as my 'sump room'.

    It has a sliding louvered door, and is open to the rest of the unfished area, furnace, water heater, etc.
    I never considerd 'drywalling it in' It's got 2x4 studs for walls, etc.

    It works. there is a floor drain nearby also luckily that I do utilize.

    ONce my return/drain hose came out of my sump. The drian water was pumped on to the cement floor, which to my happiness- drained to the floor drain!.
    I had some water in my ATO resevoir- mixed in the salt, and mixed some moreSW, and all was well.

    Keep up your good work

    I've got a 180 build nearing completion also.

    Not a whole lot has been accomplished lately due to attention on the rest of the house. Plans for plumbing of the tank and hanging of the lights should happen this weekend. It's slow progress, but its progress.

    Non tank related, but made some home improvements in the adjacent room.

    Great idea on the stairs. I shouldve thought of that for my tank.
