The sensors in the fleece area that tell the motor to turn and stop turning are on a slider that you can move up and down to put the sensor in the correct position. The position is not the same for all setups as the water level will be different. So this feature allows you to set the level without having to put your hands in the water. We also added an extra shut off sensor that is placed in the return pump area as this is the first area to change as soon as the return pump is shut off. Having redundant sensors gives you peace of mind you won’t come home and all the fleece is used up in case of a pump failure.


Are you tired of trying to find a skimmer that fits your sump or trying to find a sump that has a skimmer section that accommodates your skimmer? On the PLATINUM series, in all the sumps except the cube, the middle wall can be moved around to make the skimmer section and refugium section custom sizes. This allows you to make the skimmer section the optimal size to fit your skimmer which in turn maximizes the refugium section. If you don’t care to have a wall and prefer one large area, the wall can be removed. It is required to use the sliding cross brace, even if the wall is removed. This keeps the sump from bowing out over time.


In some applications, over time, salt creep can build up around the edges of the input plate. We have added a gasket to seal the area between the sump and the input plate to prevent salt creep build up.


The PLATINUM series has all the bells and whistles. Below is a list of additional features. We will add more details soon.

1. Four 0.25″ tubing quick disconnects for dosing and ATO
2. Cord holders to secure wires, cables and hoses
3. Polycarbonate lid over fleece area
4. Four position probe holder
5. Wire channels to hide wires
6. Adjustable water level with self adjusting top platform
7. Dual acrylic platforms with diamond cut out pattern
8. Laser engraved water level markings
9. Additional 1″ input fitting that can be placed along top brace

  1. Has some glaring deficiencies. Review by Robert
    Product Rating:

    This really is a beautiful Sump and I really wanted to like it but I had the drive gear break within first week. Got a replacement gear and that fixed that problem but then motor was running continuously despite the float switch positions. Found a blown transistor on the driver board. Very cheaply built as far as electrical equipment. They know how to do acrylic but cheaped out big time on hardware. For nearly twice the price as their non roller mat sumps I expected much better. The skimmer compartment is not as large as stated in the specs as there is an acrylic wall that extends an inch into the skimmer compartment. That screwed me as I bought a skimmer thinking it would fit. No go. Would need to do some complicated trimming and try to shoehorn it in there. (Posted on 11/5/2019)
