Trigger Systems LLC Trigger Systems specializes in aquarium sump manufacturing and are based here in the USA (Dallas, TX). All Trigger sumps come with a full top support brace which is made of a solid piece of material to prevent bowing over time from the humidity and water pressure. They also round the corners instead of squaring them which exponentially increases the strength of the corners.

Features
  • Interchangeable plates
  • Lid to prevent splashing
  • Adjustable water height
  • Self-adjusting foam block platform
  • Dual platforms
  • Protein skimmer section
  • Refugium section
  • Emerald green coloring to block light and prevent unwanted algae growth in other sections
Interchangeable Plates - Patent Pending
Each Emerald sump comes with two plates that can be placed into Section 1:
  • Filter Sock Plate
  • Foam Block Plate
The filter sock plate is installed when the included 100 micron filter socks are desired.

The foam block plate is perforated with holes and comes with a foam sponge block filter. The foam block plate can be used when filter socks are not desired or in the case when the filter socks need to be changed or cleaned but replacements socks are not readily available but yet mechanical filtration is needed. In this case, simply remove the filter sock plate and install the perforated foam block plate and then place the included foam sponge block filter in place.

Adjustable Water Level
Water level in the sump is adjustable from 7” to 9.5” to accommodate for the water height requirements for different protein skimmers.

Self Adjusting Foam Block - Patent Pending
As the water level is adjusted by sliding the wall up and down, the foam block sponge filter and the perforated plate that it sits on will also move up and down automatically. This is important to maintain the correct location of the foam block sponge filter with respect to the sump water height.

Probe Holder
All Emerald sumps come with a probe holder that can hold up to three probes. The two outside holes are 0.63” in diameter and the center hole is 0.8” in diameter to fit different sized probes.

Hose Holder
All Emerald sumps also come with 4 holes in the top support brace for holding in place 1/4” OD tubing from reactors, dosing pumps, ATO, etc.

Q
Filtration media for Emerald 26
On the return side there are 2 compartments for media. There is a narrow sponge at the top. What do you recommend for the bottom one? Ceramic media? Bioballs?

A
Most people use bagged media like carbon or GFO. Ceramic media can be used as well.

Q
How big is the inline fitting to the sump?
I wanted to know what size the fitting was going into the sump. This would be the line coming from the overflow going to the sump. The one that feeds into the filter sock.

The drain line on the Trigger Systems Emerald 26" is a 1-inch slip fitting.

PROS
Gorgeous , well made and designed, plenty of space, Adds additional water volume to your tank
CONS
to show or not to show. That is the biggest issue you will face. If this is your first filter understand that you need to add plumbing and should have plenty of space for this so you can access it easy.
REVIEW
I ordered a TriggerSys 26g Emerald sump. Lets just start with Marine Depot. They were fast and since we are both in California my UPS ground order came the very next day. Not sure that is typical. I was super impressed.
I really enjoyed reading about the packaging from Marine Depot's custo...Read More

Sweet sump

REVIEW
This is the nicest sump I have ever seen. Very quiet, and very well built. Only problem I have is that the filter socks don't fit flush, and some water does go around them. It does give the option of not using socks and using a flat sponge, pretty cool.

Let me start off saying this sump is very well made! Plenty of room for all my equipment. Extra large area for my skimmer. I replaced my old 40 breeder sump with this one and the noise level is virtually silent! All in all this sump is the best one I've owned in this hobby and I've had a lot! So if...Read More
