Plumbing Porn

Well, maybe not porn - this is a pretty simple setup, so let's call it a '15 certificate'

As mentioned, I'm waiting for some elbows and adapters to finish off the below-sump plumbing, but here's a look at where it stands right now:


If it's not clear, there are 3 horizontal pipes on the left-hand side, the top one will be the open drain, the middle one will be the siphon, and the lower one is the return (out the back of the stand and over the top of the tank). Both the open drain and siphon will drop down vertically from where they currently end, and terminate in the sump. The siphon will go through the gate valve that's resting on the sump at the moment, which is how I'll control the BeanAnimal overflow.

There's about 2mm of gap between each of these horizontal pipes - it wasn't much to aim at, but it fitted [grin]. There's not much space for the turn and drop before we hit the media containers either, but I think it'll all fit

The right-hand side is the manifold for future purposes, and the right-hand side return pipe. The untidy red, blue and black pipe behind are the pipes to the water-storage area, which the LiterMeter will make good use of.
