WATER FLOW PATH
WATER FLOW PATH
The RUBY36S has 3 main sections. Water drains from the tank into section 1 through the two 100 micron provided filter socks. Section 1 is typically where the protein skimmer sits. Water then flows through a slit in the first baffle into section 2.
Section 2 is typically used as a refugium. If a refugium is not desired, then the protein skimmer or other equipment can be housed in section 2. The water then flows over the second baffle through 2 perforated platforms and under the third baffle into section 3. The top perforated platform holds the included foam block filter and the bottom platform is open to use for several different filtration methods (bag of carbon, bio balls, rubble rock, etc.).
Section 3 is the return section where the return pump will sit, pumping water back to the display tank.

Dual Media Platforms
There are two platforms in the area before the return section. The top platform comes with a foam filter block and the bottom one is open to use for several different filtration methods (bag of carbon, bio balls, bio sponge, heater, rubble rock, etc.).
Three Slot Probe Holder
The RUBY36S 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.
Tabs are located on the top support brace in front of the 1” bulkhead fittings. The purpose of these tabs is to provide a location for tying off 7” diameter filter socks that have drawstrings. The 7″ socks allow for longer times before the filter sock gets clogged and needs to be cleaned or replaced.
Locking Filter Sock Holder
Filter socks snap and lock into the filter sock holders to secure the sock from falling out when it becomes clogged. The 4” filter socks are 100 micron rating.
The quality is top notch. I would recommend Trigger Sumps to anyone that is serious about maintaining a quality system. its obvious Trigger Systems is serious about their products. I love it!!
Best quality in the industry!
This is hands down the best quality sump I’ve ever used. I have it installed on a 75 gallon tank running with Miracle mud in the refugium. I couldn’t be happier with the decision to go with Trigger Systems! You will not be disappointed.
I had mine on my 120 gallon reef for almost two years. This has been the best sump I’ve owned. I don’t get undesired algae growth outside the refugium section, the construction is as solid as the day it was new, and anyone who views my system loves its look, quality, and design.
