I received my DreamBox this week and have a probably dumb question....

In the return pump section, there is a circle engraved into the bottom of the sump. It's probably 5-6" in diameter.

What is it for?

Thanks,

Brian

Would need to see it but it's likely where the RD3 return pump or optional reactor pump would sit? Since all the panels for these sumps are CNC cut, they include the spots machined in for other options such as larger pumps that result in less clearance between the pumps output and the top of the dreambox.

I'll try to grab a picture and post it. It is towards the back wall and I assumed it would be for a reactor based but wasn't sure.

That is where one of the smaller (1.5l) media reactors would sit should you order it as an option or add one in down the line.

You can see one in that section in this photo.

Thanks Scott, that helps confirm for me. Can you tell me what the tubes with the black caps are for in the back near the holders too? Sorry for all the questions.

Under the black caps is a stub of red PVC going into the sump. Those PVC pipes under the caps are for routing doser tubing through as well as ATO's, Automatic Water Change plumbing etc. Anything that might require additional plumbing in or aout of the Dreambox.
