Trigger Systems

Trigger Systems

Trigger Systems specializes in aquarium sump manufacturing. We manufacture all sumps here in Dallas, TX. We build each sump as if it were our own. We take pride in the robustness, efficiency of the design and visual appeal of our sumps. All sumps come with a full top support brace which are made of a solid piece of material. Without this the sump will over time begin to bow out from the humidity and water pressure. We also round instead of squaring the corners which exponentially increases the strength of the corner. We have taken feedback from our customers through the years to enhance our products. Small things in the design aspect will pay off considerably when putting the sumps to use. A simple example is that we always maximize the distance between the protein skimmer location and the return pump in an effort to minimize the chance for micro bubbles returning to the display. All of our sumps come with a refugium section that can be used to house other equipment if a refugium is not desired on the particular setup.
