Need A Bubble Trap In Sump

Recommended Posts

I need to make a bubble trap in the first section section of my sump where the tank drains. I normally run filter socks but while I am over dosing carbon to remove built up nutrients I want to take them out. The problem is I will fill my sump with bubble and the skimmer won't skim as well. I was thinking of using a 3-4" PVC pipe and drill a bunch of holes around the bottom. That would force the bubbles up before they entered the sump. This section is about 11" high. 875a898c5bda36f1cecb914ed91d527b.jpg

Kind of like what I have seen called a rock chimney. I think Melev adds them to his sumps now, simple box with open top and outlet on the bottom, the air rises and bubble free water leaves the bottom of the chimney. He adds some rubble rock to them to.
