    SQWD Hook pics anyone

    Anyone got any pics of one of these hooked up. Looking at getting the ideal flow for a 90 gal tank.

    I've got mine running off a Mag12. I'm using 1" tubing throughout, and only reducing to 3/4" where I have to for the SCWD.

    I love it.

    I just took a pic, but it's hard to see. I have the SCWD (only 1) behind the tank.

    Its on my return pump from the sump.

    It's important to keep in mind that the SCWD outputs be of equal length.

    As requested....

    Bearing in mind that everything has just been re-setup, here you go...

    From left to right:

    Mag12 on bottom left, pumps water up, then right to a TEE. The TEE goes left and up to the 1" checkvalve, then goes to the SCWD (not in picture). The other side of the TEE goes to the right-most part of the sump, where there is a 1" ballvalve to control flow. By opening the ballvalve, more water comes back into the sump, and less into the tank. There is no undue stress put at the head of the pump by doing this.

    The blue ribbed 1.5" hose in the center section of my sump is the skimmer return.

    The black ribbed 1.5" hose in the center is just a spare piece that I'm using the space apart the 1" hose from the sump... (It was the only thing that was convenient at the time)

    On the right most area of the sump, is the overflow tube from the tank, which is not visible due to the bubbles, and some more black ribbed 1.5" hose which goes to the skimmer in the next room via a GenX Mak4 pump.
    In this section of the sump, there are also 2 rigid air hose. One is from my Nielsen reactor (kalk mixer) / topoff water, the other is used only when I need to feed fresh (kalk free) water into the system.

    Not in the picture (behind the Mag12) is my DIY float switch that activates a Maxijet 1200 pump in the freshwater reservoir to pump fresh water into the kalk reactor, and then into the sump....
