Also you should be able to calculate the volume you will need for free board and build that into to your sump without needing the extra bottom tank for overflow.
I did the modeling with "Sweet Home 3D", which is free. I didn't create any of the objects... I just found the objects HERE
, downloaded it, and imported it in to Sweet Home. Then I could resize it, move it around, etc.
Tapping off of the return pump is a good idea.. hadn't thought about that.
I agree, on the overflow tank, but I have this fear that something might go wrong that causes the entire top-off tank to pump in to the sump. With the extra overflow tank, it can keep that from causing a mess. Plus the 10g tanks are only $12.
