looking for some ideas for a return line from sump. Is a spray bar a bad idea ?Also I've been gone for a while anyone using pex tubing or is pvc the way to go. Thanks for any input.

I just do PVC/Elbows right over the back..
Locline is just a restriction you really don't need..

I don't glue the last elbow thats in the tank so I can rotate it as needed.. But it won't stay rotatable for long as it tends to lock up with growth,etc.. on it but its nice when you first start to just be able to direct the flow a bit and then just leave it..

My small non-drilled tank, I just did pvc over the back with elbows, like mcgyvr suggested. My bigger tank has loc line coming off the return pvc out of the overflow.
