There are two simple ways to reduce the water volume in your sump during the test. Your sump should not be filled beyond the maximum fill mark. To begin, remove the return pump from the sump. Then raise the pump head above the aquarium water. Just below the normal hole, drill a tiny (1/8 inch) hole in one side of each pump nozzle. tank water level 🙌 Perform the test again to make sure that the problem has been solved 🙈 If so, adjust the “maximum fill” mark on your sump 👍 Once you are confident that your sump will not overflow, even during a power outage, you should sleep a bit better knowing that you won’t wake up to a wet floor in the morning.

You can correct it need to look at the return pipe from the pump.. This pipe needs to be Just at the top of the water nivel in the tank. If not, then at your return pump to tank right above the water level on that pipe drill a small hole that you can put a piece of air Tubing in and water tighten it.

This is how I find the maximum safe operating level for the sump. The sump is filled with water until it reaches the top of the tank. Next, I fill the sump until it is about 2 inches from the top. Next, I turn on the pump. Once the water is drained from the pipes, it will start to fall. The water will soon start to commingle back the return lines. Once the water has returned, mark your sump’s level as the MAX ROUNDING WATER LEVEL. Then, slowly drain the water from the sump. sump till your pump Start taking on air. That is the MIN RUNNINGWATER LEVEL. Keep the water level at the sump below these lines, and you’ll be fine in a power cut.
