    Sergio, the new tank looks great! How long did the plumbing take? Looks clean & well-planned.

    plumbing took way too much time , effort, and parts. My initial plan was to have several rows of pipes but after double unions were installed ..... height was not gonna let it happen that way. As a last resort it went with a single pipe with numerous outputs for various reasons, returns , chiller , cal rx, carbon & phos rx's.

    Thanks for the vote of confidence though :glasses:
