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
  • Sapphire blue coloring to block light and prevent unwanted algae growth in other sections
Interchangeable Plates
Each Sapphire 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 Sapphire 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 Sapphire 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
What filter socks do you recommend

Any 4" sock will fit in the ring. It's a good idea to have multiple socks on hand so you can replace it while you wash them. Here's a 200 micron sock that will fit: https://www.marinedepot.com/AquaMaxx_200_Micron_Filter_Sock_Filter_Sock_Mechanical_Filter_Media-AquaMaxx-UJ4111-FIFMMEFS-vi.html

It is very nice. Worth the buy!

reviewerbadge
PROS
1. Has dosing hose holder. 2. Probe holder. 3. Refugium and Skimmer sections. 4. Eurobraced. 5. The cool sapphire color looks so great. 6. It is bigger than my last sump but with a smaller footprint due to it being a cube. I have a 93 gallon cube tank from Marineland. I think it looks great under my tank with this sump.
CONS
None
REVIEW
I finally installed this yesterday because I had time since we are snowed in. But I do wish I bought this first before my other sump. But at least I have it now. It looks great. It holds more water than my last sump.

Everything
CONS
Curved edges
REVIEW
Not only does it look good it works perfectly! The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is the edges curve in. It’s hard to attach a hose clip or anything else, a light for example. The pre drilled holes are to small.

PROS
Works with cube tanks. Splash guard system in place to keep the water from splashing all over the place. Filter sock holder. Probe holders. Dosing hose holders. Adjustable baffles. The color is really sharp blue.
CONS
Not triggers fault but the sock holder wont allow you to use a roller mat system as of yet. Other than that, I wish I bought this before my other sump.
REVIEW
This thing looks better in person. The pics dont do it justice. Well worth the money. So many features. The color is really cool.

This sump is truly a work of art, and does it’s job and then some! I have a 54 gallon corner bowfront tank that is not drilled for a sump. After a 18 months of cleaning my Fluval 406 Canister Filter twice per month, I decided I need to figure out a way to run a sump. I also knew I would not be abl...Read More

PROS
Great design. Large skimmer section, nice size refugium and the resumption pump section is small like some.
CONS
Nothing at this point
REVIEW
Not only is this a great design for a sump, it has everything you could possibly want, it looks great too. Very well made, which expressed me. The constitution is well thought out and done right. If you need a new sump, try the trigger line. I don't think your be sorry.

Love this sump

REVIEW
Put this on a new 75 gallon tank build. Wanted something pretty enough to sit beside and compliment the display. The Trigger Emerald fit the bill perfectly. Side drilled the end of the tank and dropped the overflow directly into the inlet on the sump. Looks great and clean. Would recommend these to ...Read More
