One word..... Wife
The lateral distance is long - that makes up most of the distance. I am only going from the basement to 1st floor - re measuring looks to be about 20' lateral and then maybe 10' up total.
Revised my build
Well yesterday was a great day. Not only did I get a GREAT deal on some beautiful rock - I am changing directions.
I was able to pick up a REALLY nice used pump - 3400 GPH and has enough power to hit the head on the DT upstairs.
I also took the custom sump he had built with the plumping from the sump to the pump and a 70 gallon he was running off it as well and a killer 30 gallon refugium!!!!
So now this is my plan
In the living room - 100 gallon Reef - SPS & Fish
in my office - (other side of sump so only 2' maybe from sump) the 70 gallon and will set that up fish only because I REALLY want a lion fish at some point.
plus he threw in a TON of stuff - all together picked up
2 new pumps ( one huge 3400 gmh and one pan world 100px)
a few heaters
55 gallon brute with bulk heads and kill switches built in
2 cases salt
large box of carbon
150 pounds live rock
over flow box
70 gallon tank
55 gallon sump
30 gallon refugium
all for a incredible deal. Less than what the LR would of cost at the LPS.
congrats Reef!! sounds like yesterday was a SCORE day for you!
Electric is done!
Today was a very productive day! Got my electric run.
Ran the entre system off a 20amp -
Put in a GFCI and receptacle - to the Waste water barrel (basement is below my drain line - need to pump water up - yuck.
Put in a GFCI then 3 panels with switches to run - lights - sump - skimmer - ETC, on the wall where the sump will go.
Put in a GFCI and receptacle on the other side of the wall where my water supply is so I can have a heater/ powerhead in my water.
overall great day and only one cut!
looks good bud, Im looking for a tank just like that.
Thanks - I love the tank, cant wait till its more than a blue box.... lol.
Tomorrow I am cutting in the water line so I can make my RO water and starting the plumbing downstairs.
Wow, this is interesting. My wife wouldn't have approved this .
I am allowed to have two rooms in the house. The basement and the garage!!!
Trust me - if she went down there today and saw the ceiling ripped open for the plumbing I am running - she would not be to happy - I try to just show her the "finished" results
Smart man!! Congratulations on getting so much done!
