300 gal. FW filtr.    3/13/11
I am currently helping a family member build his house He was given a 300 gallon tank with filter system that hangs on back of the tank
<Wow! A big hang-on... I'd use a sump... underneath...>
This tank will support freshwater only, Now we have built the tank into the wall between the living room and Master Bedroom, and would like to know how to construct the filter system so as we can locate it into a totally different Room (Distance of approx say a total of 25 to 35 feet by the time it leaves the tank,),I am sure that guidelines on these things exist, volume of pump to use, diameters of water pipes, placement of booster pumps if needed, types of filter's etc. We have started on plumbing and currently are in the process of running water and Drainage but are lost at the moment on just what to do Any recommendation's on this subject in the way of suggestion's, Web sites, etc. would be greatly appreciated,
Thank You very much for your time
