this is my controller cabinet. My profilux and gyre controller and eventually other controllers will be in here.  It’s an IKEA cabinet so I can change the solid door to a glass one when I have the need for it. it’s also on wheels to roll forward to be able to access the back of tank and rear plumbing.

Plumbing version 1   I will build a new one when I get $ for better valves ,CRAZY, the price of 1 1/2” gate valves lol. No picture of the back just yet because I am still painting the back side piping.

instead of using the return bulkhead in the overflow I went over the top. The returns  are now a backup/emergency drain setup.

Looks like you are getting close!  When is the "wet date"

Hoping to get it wet this week. Have to get 1 1/4” plumbing to adapt to the cor 20 pump I have. I’ll pick that up this week. But I may wait till next week for water because I will be gone next weekend for the Ohio state-Wisconsin game.

That should be a great game, hope the look better than my team did against them :wacko:

Are the COR’s true 1 1/4 or is there some odd ball thread like on the flow meters?

I know it’s been a long slow process to get to this point lol. I haven’t had to tear anything apart so far so my thinking and working out everything I have done and have planned has been worth the time it’s taken so far. I know I’m going to change some of the plumbing but it won’t be to bad and I have an idea of that already. That will come with the other half of the planned system addition lol.
