Under Substrate Plumbing
I am working on plumbing my new 180 gallon tank (72x24x24).
It is drilled, 6 - 1 inch bulkheads down the middle of the tank (1 foot in from each long side, 2 in the middle, and 2 about 1.5 ft from each short end). It was drilled by someone else for a saltwater tank which they stand piped and hide with rock work.
It has no overflows.
I want to run a sump, not closed loop.
I am having the tank viewable from both long sides and 1 short side.
I have been trying to run the pipes under the substrate and up the shortside which would be against the wall, using durso stand pipes.
I am using thin wall pvc, not schedule 40. I think that would have the same issue as well.
My problem is that the pipes flex enough that they don't stay down. This is due to the lengths of straight pvc.
Has anyone done anything like this? If so how did you deal with these types of issues and what other issues have you run into?
