Built in Dallas Texas, Trigger Systems sumps combine strength, functionality and beauty all in one sump system. Unlike budget sumps, Trigger Systems takes the extra steps of rounding the corners and using an extra-strong center brace. All sumps are subjected to pressure and stress fatigue. Poorly-made sumps eventually show signs of pending failure such as bowing and micro cracks in the acrylic.

Trigger Systems sumps are hand-fabricated using thick acrylic and strict quality controls to ensure their sumps outperform all others. Enjoy all the refinements of a custom sump without the high costs!

The 40-gallon Amethyst sump has 4 separate compartments:

  • Interchangeable plate section for incoming water, filter socks and foam blocks
  • Skimmer section with adjustable water height
  • Center/Refugium Section with adjustable baffles for foam, rubble and other filter media
  • Return Pump Section for a submersible water pump

The sump plate section comes with the option for two or three water input fittings. You can configure the plate section to use filter socks and/or a foam block for mechanical filtration.

What we really like about the Trigger Systems Amethyst Sump:

  • Outstanding build quality
  • Lid on the inlet prevents splashing and noise
  • Ability set water height to accommodate protein skimmers and media
  • Comes with 100-micron filter sock
  • Cool amethyst violet / purple color
  • Hand-made in USA
  • Built in probe holder holds 3 probes
  • Built in hose holder has 4 holes for tubing from reactors, dosing pumps, and ATOs

Trigger Systems Amethyst Sump Features:

  • Plenty of space for a skimmer, media and water pump
  • Patent-pending interchangeable 100-micron filter sock and foam block plates
  • Pre-drilled for ¼" ATO and dosing hoses
  • Water height adjustable from 7" to 9.5" for different protein skimmers.
  • Foam block platform automatically adjusts to water height
  • Can use filter socks or foam block mechanical filtration to polish the water

Thank you for your question. Unfortunately we don't carry color PVC, we usually prefer to use Flexible PVC for this set ups, but you can perfectly use 1" PVC pipe. I would recommend adding a 1 Inch Slip x 1 Inch Slip Spears Union Fitting (Item# 0S2115) for easily disconnect the pipe when needed.

Trigger Systems Amethyst Sump

REVIEW
Replaced my old sump with the trigger 39". Installed under a 260 gal reef-fish. Working very well it looks like the first sock saturates first then 2nd, 3rd. I have a 1.25" return so had to compensate for that and added a sponge around the intake to the Sump to cut down on the splashing.
