Part one for the tank is almost complete with the remaining of the check valve which i'm about to get it after consideration in the reverse flow.

Two solution possible.

a. Cheap --> drill a hole at the outlet which what normally most reefers do.

b. Expensive --> use check valve.

Finally decided to go for the expensive approach, due to the outlet is in the front of the tank.

Will a braceless tank, expected to have some microbubles that my FTO will complain.

Now the return pipe is finally completed connected.

A bit of silicon glue added as precaution where the pipes inserted till can't pull out unless have sufficient grip.

Hehe.....

Looking good bro..nice diy skill..

Just some pointers from my perspective, the piping are very neat but the bend into the small box up area look like its quite hard to work on if problem arise..one thing that can't change is ur sump is not below all the piping joints, I say that its because if there's linkage, water will go elsewhere causing flood n pump run dry..

Is there any top up tank for ur setup?Coz I dun see any space allocated for it..maybe its elsewhere n/or u haven't write about it yet (Paiseh then..heez)

Anyway, hope to see more updates n pics coming..

Cheers..

HI Bro KenYee.

Those bend pipes and joints which not shown in the pictures actually can be accessible from another compartment which didnt show in the pictures.

Furthermore those joints are fully glue which is not mean for any changes.

Removing the top part will allow it to be transfer when needed.

Thanks for your suggestion.

I'm not using any top up tank as i'm doing water change weekly.

For those who knows me, will see me often weekly at pasir ris lfs as now DI units not DIY yet.

Hehe...

NSW cycling process on-hold due to titanium coil join with the copper pipe has minor leaks during the cooling testing.

Now need to clear and clean the sump tank before resume.

Finally managed to get the drop-in coil setup without further gas leak.

Root cause of the leaking was due to lousy skills on tube flaring which didnt do visual check prior in joining it.

Lesson learned and improve on the minor skills checks...

Hi James bro.

Thanks.

Seeing the stuff completed with obstacles does make it worth spending effort on it.

Of course downside is when things turn too bad untill we have to redo, that is the point everyone would wonder why started it at the 1st place.
