    Sump

    I picked tgis sump up on craigslist....anyone have an idea what brand it might be? I am just trying to figure out how to configure it. I know the pump will go on the side of the bulkhead, but two of the dividers have "holes" in them. I thought those dividers would be bubble traps, but with the holes, what good is that?

    re: two dividers next to pump chamber with holes in them..

    sometimes they put a foam block in between the two baffles to trap them.. its really hard to see though from the pictures if the are about 1/4 to 1/3 the height of the sump that would be my thought. I'm not sure if the holes are "original" to the construction or an aftermarket addition.

    I agree with Steve. Really hard to tell from the pictures.

    I believe the "ramp" is supposed to be some form of plenum. The dividers may have been for a filter sponge, or some other proprietary equipment.
