Red Sea Reefer Peninsula 500 sump flood question

Good evening,

I have been in the hobby for over 6 years. I always had tanks with hang-on skimmers and never had sumps. Inrecently decided to spoil myself with a Red Sea Reefer Peninsula 500. Any tips and tricks to aboid floods? What can cost a sump to flood / leak all over the floor? I heard in thenpast that power failure can cause simp over flow.

Thank you in advance for all your help.

If your sump is set up correctly - so that it can handle 100% of the drain-down when the power is off for whatever reason, it cannot flood.
