    So tonight I bought all the stuff I need to plumb my setup
    together, but I'm nervous. I thought I'd ask before I dig myself into a hole. Is it ok to use pvc pipe, Oatkey pipe cleaner and
    cement, vinyl tube, and Teflon tape?
    Thanks in advance!

    NOOOOOOO Don't use PVC!!!!




    Just kidding. It is fine. Many like to use flew spa tubing instead of ridged line though as sharp bends reduce flow through the pipe.

    Thanks everybody. I'm using vinyl tubing from the overflows to the sump, and pvc going from the sump pump back to the tank. I'm going to try to use a bunch of 45 degree angles, I think that may help some, not sure. I should ask my fluids teacher...
