This single Reservoir Tub comes in three possible configurations: no fittings or holes drilled, drilled low as an evaporation tub, or drilled high as a reservoir or refugium.

Typically the left side will feed back into the pump tub or an additional reservoir tub (often plumbed low as an evaporation tub).
The screens help prevent debris from traveling back to your pump. The more screens the higher the flow rate.
Typically the right side will connect to an additional reservoir tub (often plumbed high as a refugium).
The screens help prevent debris from traveling back to your pump. The more screens the higher the flow rate.

Description

The reservoir tub is a very popular way to add extra volume to a Seamless Sump® configuration.

Drilled for Reservoir / Refugium

If you choose to have the tub drilled as a reservoir or refugium, a 1/2″ bulkhead is placed 11.81″ from the bottom of the tub. This gives you a nice 16.6 gallon refugium for fish, coral, or plants. This is very common and recommended for saltwater aquariums.

Drilled for Evaporation

As an evaporation tub the 1/2″ bulkhead is placed 2.31″ from the bottom of the tub. This provides you with a little more than 10 gallons of evaporation before the water will fall below the recommended level for most standard pumps. This is a most common with freshwater aquariums.

If you have room in your stand it is ideal to have two reservoir tubs. One as an evaporation tub and one as a refugium.
