Need plumbing review (pic included)

Recommended Posts

Ive put together a loose mockup in schedule 40 but will use sched 80 for final plumbing. 
 
Looking for feedback on fluid dynamics not quality of materials, etc. 
 
1. I will remove the slope from the return line in the final iteration. 
2. I dont want to rely on any sort of check valve on my return manifold, so dont worry about that. Thank you.

Wow, I'm not 100% sure what I'm looking at, but I'm impressed.  That's an expensive mockup.  I'd be tempted to just use the SCH 40 plumbing you have.

 

Looks nice and clean with unions for mods and maintenance. 👍

What is each line meant for? That might help in looking for feedback. Why is the line in the back upper left hand corner at a weird angle? Is that your drain?

So the far left is your return or drain?

im guessing the drain is a durso?

 

All I can say is that’s a nice algae reactor 

Far ledt is return manifold. Middle is siphon drain for a Herbie and right is the back up drain.

Return, siphon drain, back up drain (left to right)

 

Just fitting issues with the return line as i dont have my pump for mock up yet.
