Option 1

Steps for Installation Option 1

You only need the bottom portion of the RM500 when connecting the plumbing. Remove the top roller part first! This will give you plenty of room to connect it to the sump or tank drain.

  1. Remove one of the 1" bulkheads from the sump.

  2. Use the included Tube from the RM500 and push it thru the bulkhead opening where you removed the the bulkhead.

  3. Connect the RM500 to the screw fitting on the black tube.

  4. Put the ReefMat 500 into the sump.

  5. Then pull the black tube slack up and connect the end of the black tube to a 1" PVC pipe or directly to your tank drain.

  6. Reassemble the top portion of the reefmat to the bottom of the reef mat and load your roll.

The RS tube will slip over 1" PVC and how it was designed to work with their tanks. See Figure A.1 for details.
