    Hi all

    just about to order a new sump but I have been quoted a price with or without water top up chamber.
    Seems a good idea but I thought I would see if anyone on here has a sump with the top up chamber
    Thanks in advance

    Yes well worth it imo, but it needs to be big enough to last say a week, no good if you have to constantly top up the top up section.

    That's what I was thinking
    The chamber will only hold about 15 litres but switching to led lighting from halides I get know were near as much evaporation.

    That's not bad, Mine is about 15 litres topping up a 500 litre tank and lasts just over a week.

    Mine is about 500 litres so I might as well go for the sump with the auto top up chamber

    Thanks
