 Ive  always  wondered  in  an  overflow  based  system  like  a  marine  tank  with  a  sump  how  is  a  balance  achieved  between  the  water  flowing  into  the  sump  (via  gravity  I  guess?  )  and  the  water  flowing  out  via  the  pump  into  the  tank  ?  
 
 Does  it  work  like  this  :  Tank  is  filled  till  just  the  level  of  the  weir  sump  is  also  filled  with  water.  Sump  pump  is  turned  on  and  some  extra  water  is  added  to  either  tank  and  sump  and  then  say  if  the  pump  is  sending  10  lts  per  min  into  the  tank  only  10  lts  will  overflow  from  the  tank  into  the  sump  ?
 
 Just  thought  of  this  today  and  am  not  sure.....

 It  all  depends  on  the  volume  of  water  the  out  flow  pipe  can  handle.  Weir  sump  level  should  not  matter.  The  sump  pump  out  put  will  exactly  be  the  input.  If  for  some  reason  your  return  is  blocked  beyond  a  certain  point,  you  will  have  a  flood  in  your  house.  the  reason  why  you  make  a  larger  return  than  what  is  necessary  or  use  a  quiet  over  flow  method  like  the  beananimal  or  other  such  with  multiple  overflow  pipes  to  prevent  air  entering  and  causing  noise.  Another  factor,  if  you  have  a  power  cut  and  if  the  return  is  much  lower  then  the  surface  water  lever  and  you  do  not  have   syphon  breaker  on  the  return,  there  will  be  a  larger  volume  of  water  entering  the  sump  when  the  power  is  out  which  may  result  in  a  flood,  the  reason  why  you  well  need  to  make  a  hole  in  the  return  pipe  above  the  water  level  to  prevent  this  from  happening.

 well  the  best  way  is  to  buy  a  non  return  valve  or  if  you  have  sprayers,  then  point  them  just  a  bit  below  water  level.

 the  setup  is  perfectly  planned  and  executed,  the  amount  of  planning  is  evident  in  each  and  every  step,  and  setup  is  also  a  very  very  low  maintenance  set  up  as  most  of  it  is  automated  like  ATO,  Dosing,  lighting,  temperature...  
 
 an  excellent  setup...
 
 can  you  mention  the  brand  of  LED's  used  ?  ,   i  see  meanwell  drivers  are  used,  any  info  on  this  will  be  helpful.
 
 
 
 Regards
 Harsha
