    Hadnít thought about simulating that, I actually didnít do that when I set it up. The theory is the emergency drain will take all the water but being so high will have an awful sucking sound. That would be what alerted me that the main drain was clogged.

    Correct me if Iím wrong Andre on this. I know you can buy hang on the back overflows with duel drains. My assumption Is that any with duel drains would be way oversized for a 65. With that being said you should be able to set up the herbie style with that as well. Use a single drain with gate valve and the other strictly has an emergency.

    I canít imagine why it wouldnít work, and would give some of the same redundancy that a drilled tank offers. If the hubbs is afraid of the drilled leaking you can always glob a ton of silicon around the bulk heads. They all ready have a gasket but the silicon would back that up.

    I think if we set everything up in the garage and run every possible disaster scenario to where we can idiot proof it as much as possible for me, then the hubs will come around and let me actually bring the setup in the house. I think that would help me be more at ease with it too. Especially with doing practice drills on water changes. I'd much rather mess up with tap water while figuring everything out than to waste a lot of saltwater!

    You're 100% correct. The HOB overflows with duel standpipes could easily be modified into a single primary drain with the second standpipe being taller and therefore able to work as a backup drain in the event that the first one clogs up.

    Rebecca, here is an example of an HOB overflow with two standpipes. You can't see the actual standpipes as there are sponges wrapped around them, but they are nothing more than lengths of plastic/pvc pipe that stick up. What Matt is suggesting is that you can cut one standpipe down about half an inch (or lengthen the other) so that only one drain is being used.

    That stinks. I can’t stand the Youtube app. I use iMovie which is pretty good. Has lots of basic editing capabilities plus I like that I can upload 1080p with it.

    Well. Our garage has gotten a little more crowded. The hubs bought me a little something and I think we got a really good deal.

    I had the hubs read all this and look at the pic. He said he sort of understands what y'all are talking about. lol If we go with a sump, he's willing and able to help with the plumbing.
