      • What is the total water volume capacity for each of 3rd Generations Refugiums? I have a 120g reef and want to get one that will hold enough water in the event of a total power failure without spillover on the floor when I am not at home. I recently purchased a tru-union check valve and have the 2nd Gen R200 Refugium.
      • Jason,
        3rd generation units are of similar size to corresponding 2nd gen. models. For 120 gal. system I would recommend going with R200 model which has a total capacity of approx. 28.5 gal.

    • From Jason Philip at 4/19/2017 11:59 AM
      • The ADV 200 3rd Generation, what is the total water volume? Also from what I can see online it shows it has "ONE" bulkhead fitting, but another website at satlwateraquarium (Specifications-Tank Usage/Intakes), said there they mention there are "two" bulkhead fittings for the ADV 200 3rd Generation. In addition, on the comments section, one person mention it as well. I am confused if you can answer boht of these questions and would this Refuium be a good/suitable replacement for my current 2nd GEN R200 Refugium. I currently own a 120g reef duel overflow.

      • Jason,
        ADV200 has total volume of approx. 28.5 gallons. It comes with two 1" drain bulkheads. We will update our pictures / description to reflect this. THis unit will be a good fit for 120 gal system.

    • From Maurice at 7/26/2017 8:47 AM
      • What is water level for the skimmer? Adjustable
      • Maurice,
        Water level in the simmer chamber is not adjustable in these sumps. You would have to use skimmer stand to elevate the skimmer to the proper height.
        Trigger Systems refugiums come with level adjustment feature.

    • From Allen at 1/22/2018 9:28 AM
      • will the advance 200 work with a 75 gallon reef tank, since there is only one drain on the tank and two on the sump?
      • Allen,
        Yes, you can use this sump on 75 gal tank with no problem. Unused drain bulkhead can be simply closed with the PVC plug to reduce noise.
      • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
    • From Lance Gout at 9/8/2018 4:10 PM
      • Does the sump come with hoses, or do I have to purchase them.
      • Lance,
        This refugium comes with drain hoses included.

    1. Great sump for the price Review by Taylor
      Product Rating:

      At this price, you can't go wrong. Huge sump with alot of water volume (good)
      it is built very well and very sleek design.
      The only reason I have 4 instead of 5 is due to the layout of return section being in back. You can barely access from front of tank and can not see the waterlevel line. If you can live with that (I use a $5 selfiestick to hold my phone camera back there to see) its great!
      ps. be sure to measure. luckily I didn't have water yet in tank. had to take apart stand to fit the sump in (stand doors too small) (Posted on 6/2/2018)

    2. Eshopps r200 Review by Ryan
      Product Rating:

      Using the r200 on my 220 fowlr tank.. first off if you have a good dc pump this thing is almost silent.. keep the sock cleaned every three days or so that way the water flows through easily and lowers the sound..
      the refugium is nice! It tumbles my Chato at a good speed and the stuff is growing like crazy even with an off brand white led.. as for the problems stated that the pump water level is not easily seen.. guys put your head down there while watching your Chato grow..
      the sock is easily removed for service by the way.. draw back is the over flows inlet is 1” but actually it made my overflows quiet because of the reduction.. I used to use the shut off valves to regulate now I just open wide and let the thing work it’s magic! Haven’t put my protein skimmer I. Yet but the refugium is doing it’s job for sure!! Nitrates and phosphates are near zero and the brown algae problem is being resolved due in part to the refugium! If your looking into getting one of these I’d say hell yeah unless you could fit the adv-200 in there.. 4 stars (Posted on 1/16/2018)

    3. Great Sump if you want to have separate compartments Review by Awesome Sump for the Price
      Product Rating:

      Im a big fan of eshopps. This sump itself is a great value for the money. The Eshopps Channel design is different and I like how it works. I originally had the R100 and then upgraded to the R200. There is a very big difference in the size and amount of space available. I recommend getting as big as you can afford so you dont have to upgrade again. The return is kinda tight but I am able to fit the Vectra M1 in it. You just have to push it thru the initial acrylic. Once you past a part of the acrylic then there is enough space for the return pump. Other return pumps I'm not so sure; you will have to measure it yourself. The skimmer area is big enough that I can fit a protein skimmer and a Reef Octopus BR110 in the protein skimmer compartment itself. The R200 uses the 7 inch socks just FYI. Overall, well worth the money in my opinion. (Posted on 2/5/2017)

    4. Small Return Pump Section Review by GruntDog
      Product Rating:

      Had this Refugium for one day before I returned it. The Design is poor. Skimmer Compartment is smaller, Refugium is tiny. But the worst thing about is is the return pump section. only 4 inches wide. Had a Sicce 3.0 pump in the compartment and just the vibration in the water from the pump would be amplified by the smaller water volume in this compartment. Only use if you have a very small return pump. I ended up trading it back in at my LFS for the Standard Eshopps RS200 Sump without refugium so I had a larger return pump section.

    5. I love this sump Review by Seal over
      Product Rating:

      Pros This sump does a great job of filtering your tank. My skimmer works great in this sump a skimz sm161.
      I love the design and having the refugium in the center.
      The sump is very quiet and is well built.
      Cons the float valve it came with i replaced immediately with one that didn't relay on water pressure.
      Also u can't see your return pump

    6. Good but need better QC and re-design Review by Ducky
      Product Rating:

      I got the R-200 for my 75 Gs tank. You'll need to have a strong pump (Flow rates >1000 to push water over to the filter sock (I think it's a design error here) If water can't get over and into the filter sock, than your skimmer will have no water to skim. I ended up having to upgrade my return pump. Also my unit has a bad seal where water would leaks back into the refugium from the return chamber. Overall, I give it a 3 stars. (Posted on 10/2/2015)
