i have a 500 gallon tank that is being gravity fed into my filtration buckets and then to my sump where half of that is sent to my grow bed and half back to he tank so my problem is my tank not draining into the filtration fast enough, so is there a way to increase the flow without having to cut my tank again? Any help here would be great
P.S. this is all using 1inch pvc plumbing
I'm afraid there is not enough information in the description you gave. If possible can you post some pictures?
Bigger pipes, fewer fittings, or more height difference are about all you have to work with... although it might be easier to just add a second pipe alongside the first one?
problem found and solved i had a curious fish get sucked into my intake and clog the pipe. Without the bloated corpse in the plumbing it flows just fine. I have put a cover over the intake pipe and things roll smooth. Thank everyone for their helpful advice.
P.S. i will have pictures with explanations posted soon any advice or warnings will be welcome
So it was the old bloated fish in the drain pipe trick! You can place a mesh over the pipe to avoid this happening again. Good luck!
