Re: [APD] Eheim for sump pump

I am considering adding a sump to my tank because I like some of the advantages, such as heater in the sump, constant water level, etc..
I really don't know a lot about using this type of a system right now I am running an Eheim 2026 and a Eheim 2028 on my 120g tank.
What I would like to do is use one of these Eheims to pump the water back to the tank from my sump. So the water would be filtered thru the sump then thru the Eheim before returning to the tank.

I had a 2017 and it pumps very little water compared to submersible pumps.

In a sump, likely you need to push water several feet high
and the canister will pump very little water if at all.

If you want to try, make sure you do a disconnect power test to
make sure:
1. Your sump will not overflow.
2. Pump can restart itself.
