Ok made another revision to the sump what do you think?
You might want to reconsider.... Any failure will overflow the tank and reduce salinity drastically....it's happened to many folks. Even fail safes fail. I will probably get an RO/DI soon, but I will still use my 7 gal jug and swap out. Seven gallons will fit in my sump and not lower salinity drastically. Hooking up a RO/DI directly to the tank is nice, but it has the potential for catastrophe. Usually in the middle of the night or when you are on vacation.
looks good, the only suggestion I would make is to make the return area a bit wider, it will make pump maintenance easier and give you a little more protection from evaporation which all shows up right there.
Telgar couldn't get to the computer today to see your post. Put everything together already. Here it goes, tomorrow will do a water test then off to the DT.
Here is the exact dimensions I used all internal
Skimmer 13x10x11 3/4 6.6 gallons
Fuge 21x15x11 3/4 16 gallons
Return 8 1/2x10x11 3/4 4.3 gallons
And the baffles were 2" apart at 10" high 2 gallons
Total volume at 28.9 gallons
Materials I used
Permanent marker,pen,silicone,sanding block,tape measure,48" T-Square,alcohol,oil for cutting glass,paper towel,rafters square,pliers.
I used the pen for snapping the 1/4 glass instaed of using the side of the table I think this way was much safer.
