    I put in the airline system that you can see around the top of the room above the racks. 40mm pressure pipe
    in a continues loop around the ceiling, that i can attach airlines to later.
    this is what the huge air pump was for.

    While the racking system was being made i started the task of plumbing in the return lines.





    they go to the sumps which are in an enclosed, insulated sub-floor to keep them clean and temp controlled
    whilst giving me maximum space for tanks in the room.
    The black boards are marine ply, water resistant and nice and smooth so i can just slide under when needed.
    All 4 sump @ 2200 long are in this space with room either side for me to clean and adjust things.
    Its a tight squeeze.



    and this is the holes I drilled through the tanks for the bulkheads. 6mm double base tanks. Not the easiest to drill.
    40 holes drilled in about 3 days. no record but also not one breakage.



    Only downside to double base tanks is the mess that gets trapped between the glass when you drill them.

    I'm picturing you under that floor and finding some kind of awesome shrimp one day living in the sump and not being able to get it out I spend a lot of time under floors and that looks tight but comfortable to work under!
