Interchangeable Plates

Each Emerald sump comes with two plates that can be placed into Section 1:
  • Filter Sock Plate
  • Foam Block Plate

The filter sock plate is installed when the included 100 micron filter socks are desired.

The foam block plate is perforated with holes and comes with a foam sponge block filter. The foam block plate can be used when filter socks are not desired or in the case when the filter socks need to be changed or cleaned but replacements socks are not readily available but yet mechanical filtration is needed. In this case, simply remove the filter sock plate and install the perforated foam block plate and then place the included foam sponge block filter in place.

Adjustable Water Level

Water level in the sump is adjustable from 7” to 9.5” to accommodate for the water height requirements for different protein skimmers.

Self Adjusting Foam Block

As the water level is adjusted by sliding the wall up and down, the foam block sponge filter and the perforated plate that it sits on will also move up and down automatically. This is important to maintain the correct location of the foam block sponge filter with respect to the sump water height.

Probe Holder

All Emerald sumps come with a probe holder that can hold up to three probes. The two outside holes are 0.63” in diameter and the center hole is 0.8” in diameter to fit different sized probes.

Hose Holder

All Emerald sumps also come with 4 holes in the top support brace for holding in place 1/4” OD tubing from reactors, dosing pumps, ATO, etc.

  1. TRIGGER SYSTEMS EMERALD 34 REFUGIUM - Excellent Investment Review by Robert
    Product Rating:

    Just got this for my 125 g reef tank I am setting up. The 4 chamber design is great as I can put my skimmer in 1st chamber after sock filtration, which won't affect the pods in the refugium section. Pump section is sufficient for both pump and heater rod. I still have enough room in 1st chamber to put a in tank uv sterilizer and space for future media reactor hosing. Sufficient flow path. Looking at adding the 10 g ATO tank to this also. (Posted on 2/11/2016)

  2. Love this Sump Review by Scott
    Product Rating:

    Trigger Systems has mad an amazing product here. The sump is easy to adjust the different chambers and having the skimmer chamber in the first chamber is also a plus. This allows the copepods from my refugiumto go straight to the return pump and not having to worry about them being sucked up by the skimmer(which my mandarin is thanful for). (Posted on 9/3/2015)
