 Eshopps sumps are made out of quality components and let you add additional water volume while giving you more space for filtration and equipment placement. The design of the Refugium series of sumps is simply outstanding. From a drain and return chamber cover, individual flow paths, and ease of maintenance, Eshopps sumps are simply the best.

Dual Water Channel Design

CUBE Medium sumps feature unique flow through the separate refugium and skimmer chamber. The main advantage is that your skimmer can now uptake undissolved organics while your refugium can absorb nutrients like ammonia, phosphorus, and other unwanted nutrients without having to compete with each other.

Water Flow

The Eshopps Cube sumps have a unique flow pattern through them. Water first drains into the main drain chamber where a portion of the water will flow into the refugium chamber, and skimmer chamber completely separate. The skimmer compartment has a filter sock to help polish the water of any debris or detritus before entering the protein skimmer, where the refugium compartment gets completely unfiltered water. Keeping the flow paths isolated greatly increases the protein skimmers efficiency and also the growth rate of the refugium. Both chambers drain into the return pump chamber where water can be pushed back into the aquarium by your choice of return pump

  1. WELL-BUILT, QUALITY SUMP Review by PHLOTSAM
    Product Rating:

    I bought this to use with my Biocube 29. Fits well under the cabinet, and made a big difference to the overall stability of the system. I had the same issue with the water not passing through the filter sock that was mentioned in another review. I added a plastic plate to my refugium to raise the water level slightly, causing more water to divert into the skimmer section. Eshopps would have done well to include a device to allow this adjustment, so that the device could be tweaked by the user in this fashion. Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase.
