    ...get the sand out of my sump(fuge). Don't need it. Can't siphon because its too low. Suggestions?

    Honestly from experience their's no easy way. what I did was just siphon as much water as i could and took a wetvac to get it all out or scope it out but, I would think the wetvac would be better because any crude that would go floating into your DT would be mostly sucked up.

    Do it during a water change. Empty out the chamber its in. Use a net to scoop it out.

    Good ideas! Didn't even think of a wet vac.
